Can I Use the Stroller Seat or Bassinet in the car?
No, the Bassinet is not a car seat. Only the Orbit Baby Infant Car Seat is child restraints approved for use in motor vehicles under FMVSS213.
Can the Bassinet be used as an indoor cradle for my newborn?
Yes, the Bassinet docked in the Orbit Baby Rocker Base can be used as a safe sleeping arrangement for your infant. When used with the Rocker Base, the Bassinet becomes a great bedside-height sleeping cradle. The mattress has a breathable aero-mesh fabric which facilitates airflow through the mattress. The soft-touch upholstery keeps baby comfortable by wicking moisture away from skin for a consistent temperature.
Until what age or weight can my child sleep in the Bassinet?
The Bassinet is rated for infants up to 20 pounds, or when the infant can roll over or push up on his/her hands and knees, whichever comes first. At either of these points, you should discontinue use of the Bassinet.
What is the proper docking position for the bassinet on the rocker base?
Proper Bassinet positioning is perpendicular to the rocker legs. This allows for a side to side rocking and an even level for your baby.
Why is my Bassinet tilting to one side on the Rocker Base?
It's actually normal for the Bassinet to be slightly tilted on the Rocker when docked parallel to the legs on the Rocker. This is because the hub of the Bassinet is slightly off-center in order to dock properly onto the Stroller Base. You can do two things to level the Bassinet on the Rocker. First, you can engage the anti-rock tabs on the Rocker Base legs, which should help keep the Bassinet more level. Second, you can rotate the Bassinet so it's docked perpendicular to the legs on the Rocker (side-to-side rocking). This perpendicular position is proper docking position.
