From Sheets to a Bassinet Masterpiece!
By: JUDITH GREEN, NY
I have a beautiful pink wicker bassinet which I used by my previous girls…the bedding was very shabby and it needed a makeover for the new baby. I had some old sheets in my closet…they were adorable and really all girls, white with pink tiny flowers…my heart was set on them! aBaby turned those sheets into a masterpiece…a most beautiful bedding set for my little princess!
Boat Shaped Bassinet
By: HAPPYMOM, CA
My husband built a boat shaped bassinet and I thought I would not be able to find a mattress that would fit well. I was about to tell my husband that I don't think this whole idea would work out. Then my friend told me that you sell custom angled mattresses. I thought they would be bloody expensive so I told her I think I’ll just buy a regular bassinet for my baby. When I checked out your mattresses, I was surprised how decently priced you are! It was kind of hard to actually measure the base of my bassinet and I was worried it wouldn't fit but thank the Lord it did! The custom white bumper completed the look and gave the cradle lovely appearance.

We had a wicker bassinet that was passed down from two generations earlier and was still in mint condition. My daughter refused to buy a new bassinet. I had to somehow try to find some sort of bedding to dress the bassinet. I ordered this custom mattress since the bassinet measured 14 ˝ by 29 ˝ . I was able to get it with rounded corners and the fit was great! The customer service reps were very helpful!
Our Cradle Story
By: VENESSA W., KY
When my grandma died, we found her baby cradle hidden in a closet in her attic. I was expecting at the time and thought it would be perfect for my baby. Everyone tried convincing me to get a new one because I won’t be able to find a mattress or bedding to fit it. So I’m glad I found aBaby.com! The base is an odd shape and they were able to customize the perfect mattress and sheets for me! I’m so glad that my baby will be able to sleep in her great-grandma’s cradle! (She was born in 1917!)
