“ Brand: Mothercare / Type: Moses Baskets „
I love this moses basket, after 2 girls when I found out I was having a boy I wanted to do the boy thing big time.
A moses baskets are great for when your baby is tiny. I always thought a new born looked lost in a cots as they so tiny. It is ideal for if you want to get baby to sleep down stairs where you are just carry it upstairs when you go to bed. As I have two other little ones I found it very handy to be able to take the baby wherever I was so he wasn't messed about with by his two big sisters.
I am not a fan of frills so this moses basket was perfect for me, as it has the padded material cover with out all the frills and lace. The material is blue with cars all over it.
I found the blanket that came with the moses basket great as it was really light weight so I was able to use it, this was not the case with another moses basket I has with my girls the blanket was really thick and as didn't want them to over heat I didn't use it.
The moses basket comes with a wipe clean mattress which was great for me with a sickly baby and all the padding and lining of the basket comes off very easy for washing.
the only down point i found on this basket was the hood didnt stay up very well.
If you like the design of this basket you can get lots of co-coordinating items from mother care at some great prices.
This moses basket retails at around £40 for me it was deff a great boy buy
If you are wondering wheither or not a moses basket is a good idea I would strongly recommend this one. Our room is quite small but the basket fitted in and meant easy access to our son at night and meant we could keep an eye on him as you want to. The moses basket looked very comfortable and my son took to it easily although one thing i would highlight is that if you want a maxi cool mattress you have to buy this as an addition seperately. Remember also to buy fitted sheets with it too. It comes with a lovely wee cover but to be honest i didnt find a use for it as it was on the small side. The moses basket is super as it is quite light to move room to room which was necessary for us as we needed our son to be near a window for light as he had jaundice. The canopy is a nice extra but i found i didnt put it up much just when the main light was on in the room. An excellent moses basket overall in a cute colour for a wee boy.
Comes complete with dressing, coverlet, and an adjustable canopy.
