Moses Basket Help
A Moses basket is usually the first bed your little baby will have once you arrive home.
Many people ask about Moses Baskets, anything from what colour do we think is best, what is a Moses basket anyway, right through to some fairly technical questions about density of fabric and even the atomic weight....of all things!
Well, as a mother of two and having gone through the process myself, I feel fairly qualified to answer most questions about Moses baskets. Most people class Moses baskets as the first bed for their little one. The first part and addition to the nursery, although most people have the baby in the same room as them at this stage.
Lets start with one of the really simple questions about Moses baskets, one that is the most popular Moses basket question asked.......'Errr, so what exactly is a Moses Basket then?
Well, it's a technically a piece of nursery furniture that is put onto the floor where your baby will sleep in for the first time once you are home. Most often it's not put into the nursery as it's usually put into your room. You can also buy Moses basket stands that raise the Moses basket and puts baby in line with you in your bed. This helps with avoiding quite so much back strain when lifting and replacing baby into the Moses Basket.
'Mums been there seen it twice and have the T shirt tip1' - 'If you buy a Moses basket stand, make sure its sturdy and of good quality, as the last thing you want is a rocking Moses basket!
Moses Basket designs, makes and fabrics, range from every colour under the rainbow and indeed, a lot more. It's worth spending a little more and getting a 'quality' Moses basket, as with most things, you get what you pay for.
'Mums been there seen it twice and have the T shirt tip 2' - Go for quality when looking for a Moses basket, and ask a genuine mum, who has been there before you, what they think.
Over the years there have been many different styles and manufactures of Moses baskets, but generally they have all stayed the same in their traditional styles. Many Moses baskets holding the natural reed and historical feel and look over the years. Many of the natural and organic Moses Baskets are made from canary grass reed (This is the grass that is found along margins of lakes, streams or in wetlands). All Moses baskets hold the same concept in design, in that the walls of the Moses Basket are strong enough to stop baby from falling out of the Moses Basket.
'Mums been there seen it twice and have the T shirt tip 3' Quite often, Moses Baskets have hoods that allow shade. This can be particularly useful in countries where the sun shines (clearly not the UK: )
Moses baskets are exceptionally excellent at being portable and most baskets have carry handles on each side. Moses baskets are generally small enough to move around your home pretty easily without much fuss.
In summary, Moses baskets will probably be your first purchase, and your first introduction into buying nursery furniture for your little one, so buy wisely and go for quality. A good night sleep for baby and yourself is worth a million pounds...
