Last week I posted a photo of one of our store windows featuring our new linen range Petite Nest. I neglected to mention the baby moses basket also used in the display! And after discussing it with a few customers over the weekend I thought I’d do a little feature on it.
Simple and elegant this baby moses basket is designed for use until the baby can sit up or roll over (about 4 months) and is slightly larger than a normal basket. Included is an easy to remove machine washable 100% waffle cotton liner and with a foam mattress and mattress cover. The handles have an interwoven rope that extends around the circumference of the basket ensuring its strength and durability. Perfect use around the house and for travel. The mattress dimensions are 76cm x 34cm.
Some people swear by them, others are unmoved. I’ve spoken to both camps. Those who used a basket of this sort said it was great for daytime naps or in the parents room for the first few months, moving baby around the house and garden, great for sleep overs with friends and family, light, portable and compact.
I think I like them because when I was four I used to carry my dolly around in a smaller version. Everywhere. Probably drove my mother mad. All I need now is a real baby to put in it.
