Our Best Moses Basket Recommendations

Moses baskets are a really good product to have as they provide a place your newborn can sleep which is portable! This portability makes them very useful as they can be moved from nursery to living room with ease, providing a safe sleeping space for your little one whilst you take the opportunity to do bits around the house.

There are a few features that make a moses basket a really great item to have. When buying a moses basket we have listed the key features that a moses basket should have below:

  • A waterproof, flat firm mattress that comes with a moses basket is an essential, this mattress helps support the baby’s neck and back in their early years untill they can sit up without any aid. A waterproof mattress helps with clean ups in those inevitable baby accidents and it is also great to have a wool fibre mattress as it is naturally antibacterial and provides a natural temperature regulator to keep your newborn comfortable in a all seasons.
  • Material of the basket, a woven willow that a lot of Clair de Lune baskets have make a great looking product which looks stylish in any room. Natural wicker material allows for excellent airflow, keeping your baby cool and comfortable.
  • It is important to have an easy to clean moses basket that is easy to maintain.
  • Having a stand is important which matches your Moses basket, therefore is best to buy with moses basket in a bundle. You can get rocking stands that help lull your baby by gently rocking. Alternatively folding stands are available which allow for compact storage when basket not in use with stand.
