Can you take the carrycot off and use as a standalone unit? Also is the carrycot suitable for occasional overnight use?
You absolutely can detach the Kinderkraft Prime's bassinet and put it on the floor, use it for visits, or just for the short daily nap as a standalone unit, yes. It is, however, not that luxurious and not tested and approved for overnight sleeping, so I strongly advise against such - overnight, instead of a cot - use. Rather get a cot (I mean, even Kinderkraft offers rather affordable travel cots) and if needing something for sleeping on holidays or at grand-parents, be safe, with ventilated-enough, harder mattress product.
