JAMES BOND BASSINET

My husband and I are looking into buying this First Years 5-in-1 Sleep System and were reading online reviews . . .

The comments mostly affirmed that this would be a worthwhile purchase since it serves as a bassinet for the first 5 or 6 months, and the top comes off to be portable leaving a diaper changing station. Plus it has storage underneath. Someone called it the James Bond bassinet.

The negative reviews were hilarious complaining about odd, nit-picky things like the ruffles getting in the way of the storage and the base being so large that a woman kept stubbing her toes (sounds like a personal problem). Someone else complained that it was too hard to roll unless you are going straight (what kind of ride is she taking her baby on?) We laughed so hard, which is quite dangerous for someone as pregnant as I!

So we were inspired to write our own mock reviews:

We luv it! Especially the roomy storage, although it could be more accessible since I have to bend over to get a diaper. The wheels aren't as smooth as I'd like, especially when we strap it onto the back of our Suburban for trips. The baby gets a little gassy. When Zac outgrew it when he turned 36 weeks, we converted it to mini-bar!!!!!!

Hi Pat and January - thanks - I'm onto more dangerous stuff - coughing! Deep, rattling coughs that keep me up - and I was just telling someone how well I've been sleeping in this pregnancy . . .
