I wish I could give you mine!



We don't really need it. It's been under my bed all folded up since Basil's been 3 months old.



:(

That sucks. I'm sorry you're having such a bad day. :(



Can you look up cleaning methods for mildew? Maybe it is salvagable!

would it be safe to use it afterwards? because we use ours from birth to 6 months as a bassinet then when we go places (ALL THE TIME) and i want to make sure she'd be safe sleeping in it :(

I'm honestly not sure. It's not something I've looked into, but I'll search for some info

From what I'm reading, you can scrub it with a 50/50 vinegar and water solution, then let it be out in the sun. Perhaps then buy a cover for the bottom mat and you're good to go!

we dont currently have much sun :( lol



but i soaked it yesterday in vinegar and hot water. i think im just gonna go spray it with vinegar now, and scrub, then let it dry in front of the heater. then by a sheet, they have it for $8, and i can also get one that has more padding.. the pad at the bottom is pretty hard. lol

The sun is more for the antimicrobial qualities, not so much to dry it. It'll help kill of any ickies that are lurking inside. :)

I don't mind anything. Just not comfortable putting her in a moldy one.
