I had the Kolcraft Cuddle N Care Lite Vibes vibrating bassinet and while Katie didn't like the vibration setting (the movement always startled and scared her), the other options of sounds, music, light and rotating mobile were lifesavers! I moved the mobile to her crib and the music still helps her go to sleep when she's overtired.

Yes! Vibrating bassinets are great! When she would start to stir, I would turn it on and it always bought us atleast another 1/2 hour of sleep!

I know what you mean about all of the gadgets. I think my favorites in those first weeks were the bouncy seat (fisher price aquarium) and the swing, my sling (when she was fussy I could put her in that and walk her right to sleep), and my jeep stroller and infant seat that fit in it! Later I bought an exersaucer, which entertains her for long enough to get some things done (like cook dinner).

Thanks so much for everyone's input so far! It's tough getting ready for your first baby with all these different gadgets out there. There have to be hundreds of different bassinets, baby baths, diapers, everything! Glad this board is here!

If it was me, I would get it in case you do need it. My son slept better in my friends when he was over there. Kept him asleep alot longer.

We have the bassinet with the vibrating feature and have never used it. LO just seemed not to care when he is in his bassinet. We do have a bouncy chair that vibrates and he does love that.

We have a Graco bassinet from DS that we'll be using with baby #2 that has a vibrating option. The vibrating on ours wasn't too loud but you could hear a low hum. It was definitely a lifesaver in the first few weeks.

I saw this really cute vibrating bassinet at Target that helps to put the baby to sleep. I was just wondering if anyone else has had one of these and if the sound of the vibrating is very loud? It seemed to get good reviews on the Target site. Thanks!
