2019 Silver Cross Wave vs. 2018 Silver Cross Wave Bassinet

The bassinet included with the Silver Cross Wave is deeper for the 2019 model, providing a little extra wiggle room for your growing baby. 

Approved for overnight sleeping, the Silver Cross Wave bassinet includes a quilted interior made with bamboo, a natural fiber that's antibacterial and helps control your baby's body temperature.

2019 Silver Cross Wave vs. 2018 Silver Cross Wave Accessories

For the 2018 Silver Cross Wave, car seat adapters for Cybex, Maxi-Cosi and Nuna car seats are included with purchase.

For the 2019 stroller, the same adapters are available but are now sold separately for $49.

Also new for 2019: a stand that elevates the Silver Cross Wave or Coast bassinet, making it safe and convenient for overnight sleeping in your home.

Otherwise, the 2019 Wave comes with all of the same included accessories as the previous model, including a bassinet, rain and bug covers, seat liner, lightweight footmuff and more.

2019 Silver Cross Wave vs. 2018 Silver Cross Wave Configurations

The 2018 Silver Cross Wave was advertised as offering 16 configurations that provide flexibility as your family grows. Now, Silver Cross showcases the 2019 Wave with nearly twice as many configurations as before.

But good news for parents buying either model: There are no functional differences between the models, so both the 2018 and 2019 strollers offer the same 30 configurations.

Silver Cross is simply advertising more options for the stroller, like adding the ride-along toddler board or positioning the toddler seat or bassinet higher onto the frame by flipping up the Wave's integrated upper adapters.

The Wave offers seven configurations out of the box, including a double stroller option with the toddler seat on the upper position and bassinet on the lower position.
