How did this product make your life easier?

Louise: This moses basket is a good size. It is light and portable which makes it easy to move around the house depending on where you want to be with the baby. It has a nice lining which can be removed if it needs to be washed. There is the ability to either rock the stand or keep it stationery which can help to calm baby depending on what works for them.

Katie: The best thing about this Moses basket is the ease of carrying it upstairs with ease and without waking baby up. It was easier than the traditional wicker baskets I’ve used in the past in terms of carrying around and was much easier to wipe clean. I also loved how easy it was to put together as anything that saves time as a new mum is a bonus.

Sarah: This basket was so lightweight that I managed to move baby from room to room safely. The fact that it was so easy to wipe clean or wash the inner materials is also a bonus. No stains were ever left behind - so the moses basket still looks like new after many weeks of use. Very pleased with the quality.

Would you recommend this to other parents?

Florence: The product was simple and straightforward. I particularly liked being able to lift the basket easily with the handles and the grey plastic was easy to clean. It looked comfortable and airy for the baby and I liked the clean white/grey colour scheme. It was nice to have the option of a rocking base to help settle the baby.

Letitia: I would recommend this product to other mums because the design is different but lovely , it’s built so that’s it’s not heavy and it’s easy to keep clean for baby. The design also is nice and airy and our baby was comfortable in it. Also has a rocking stand that is handy when baby stirs you can just rock back to sleep.

Sophie: I would recommend this although I thought the plastic material was a bit hard - I have seen another Moses basket in this design that was made of a softer material. However that didn't really affect its use. I'd definitely recommend this type of basket over a traditional one as it's so easy to move around the house. The cover was easy to fit and washed well although it did shrink a tiny bit after washing, which meant it was a bit harder to fit back on.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Caron: I would recommend this product to others due to how easy it is to use, it's easy to set up, feels sturdy and the material is easy to clean and keep hygienic for my baby. The design of the product i believe is great, it's modern looking and streamline, rather than a bulky design, this helps if you have limited space in your room. The cotton sheets that fit onto the bed are easy to take off and clean and can be tumble dried which always a bonus! My only negative is the cost, as brilliant as the product is, the quality of the materials used to make the stand/basket I do not feel justifies spending £99.99. They do not feel or look expensive enough to spend that amount of money when comparing the basket to other baskets on the market that are lower in price.

Sarah: Yes I would because I like to have products that are easily maintained and last. I can see that I can now pack this product and it will look like new when it is used again. So easy to move around and my baby was very comfortable. I have an older child who also found it easy to carry the basket to the next room.

Katie: Definitely above wicker baskets due to the flexibility and ease to clean and carry. I really felt that the air holes kept baby cooler which I haven’t seen with other Moses baskets. I also like how there is an option for rocking or static stand as most stands usually are made for rocking. I feel this basket would last for a couple or babies providing you changed the mattress which can’t be said for all wicker Moses baskets.

What changes would you make to this product?

Florence: Keep the basket as it is but I would invest in better quality materials and a sturdier finish on the base as I can't see the current one lasting more than one baby. I didn't feel reassured that my baby was well supported and in the end used this a lot less than I thought I would. It would also be nice to have a second liner in the box as this is bespoke to the product I think.

Letita: The one thing I think could be changed with this product is the size. Our baby was quite big and wasn’t able to use this product for too long before he grew out of it. It’s a very thin Moses basket not very wide at all and noticed that it was one of the smallest Moses baskets I had seen. But as mentioned before it was perfect for the early days just did not last long.

Sophie: I don't think I'd really change anything about it, apart from making sure the cover doesn't shrink in the wash. The only thing would be to look at the type of plastic used, if there's a softer one available, but then I know that would affect the price which at the moment is very reasonable and good value.
