Measure the circumference of the rim of the bassinet. Figure A

  • If your rim measures 90” or greater – select bedding sets labeled 16” x 32.


  • If your rim measures less than 90” than you need to measure the length and width of the base. (Where the mattress lays.) Figure B



  • If the length and width of the base measure 13” W x 29” L or less than select bedding sets labeled 13” x 29”.


  • If the length and width of the base measure greater than 13” W x 29” L than select bedding set labeled 17” x 31”.
