Yes, the UPPAbaby Vista bassinet can fold flat, which is helpful when using this bassinet for travel, transport between homes, or storage for your next child.
The UPPAbaby Vista bassinet, included with purchase of the stroller, can be used from birth up until baby weighs 20 pounds, or can roll over and push up on their hands and knees. If your baby has outgrown their bassinet and you need to store it away, or if you plan to travel with the bassinet and need it folded flat, here are a few considerations:
- Make sure it is clean and fully dried before folding, and do not store in a damp environment; this helps prevent the growth of mold
- If you'll travel with the bassinet, purchasing the UPPAbaby TravelSafe Bag for the Bassinet ensures it's protected and can be covered by the UPPAbaby TravelSafe Warranty program
- When you're ready to use again, make sure the bassinet is fully open and locked before use
Let's see how to fold and unfold your UPPAbaby bassinet.
How to Fold the UPPAbaby Bassinet
Out of the box, your UPPAbaby Vista Bassinet will arrive folded for compact transport. To set up your bassinet, locate the two support wires located underneath the removable mattress. Using the attached pull tabs, pull one u-shaped wire into place so it locks under the two plastic tabs, and repeat on the other side. This may be easiest to do while the bassinet is attached to the stroller frame, which allows gravity to help lower the bassinet base into place as you secure each wire into place.
Once you have assembled your Vista bassinet, zip the removable apron overtop and raise the canopy so it clicks into place and provides coverage. The bassinet canopy doubles as a carry handle, and includes a built in button that lets you easily remove the bassinet from the stroller or bassinet stand in one motion.
To fold the UPPAbaby Bassinet, which is compatible with any Vista, Vista V2, Cruz, and Cruz V2 stroller from 2015 to present as well as the UPPAbaby Minu, Minu V2, and Ridge strollers with purchase of adapters, just remove the mattress and pull the two support wires inwards.
Lower the canopy back by pressing the round buttons at either side of the canopy and fold it backwards to flatten.
