Moses baskets are designed for newborn babies to sleep in for the first few months of their life as they are smaller than a cot and provide a cosy space for a new baby to sleep in.

For more cosiness for your little one, see my guide to baby blankets and baby sleepsuits.

Moses baskets are a popular choice for new parents as they take up a small amount of space, are easily portable and can be moved from room to room.

They are ideal for setting up next to your bed and usually take up less room than a cot or a crib.

The Lullaby Trust recommends that “The safest place for your baby to sleep is a separate cot or Moses basket in the same room as you for the first 6 months, even during the day.”

We’ve researched the market to give you our top picks of the best Moses baskets for babies, including Moses basket stands and mattresses.

Most of our picks are available to buy on Amazon, but we’ve also listed other recommended suppliers.

What To Consider When Buying A Moses Basket

Buying A Moses Basket

Traditional Moses baskets are made from natural materials such as wicker.

They look lovely and are breathable due to the small holes that are present due to the weaving process.

They are also easily portable as they are lightweight and usually have woven handles incorporated into the design.

The cons of having a traditional style Moses basket is that they can be tricky to clean because of the material.

Nowadays there are alternative options made of manmade materials such as plastic with vent holes for breathability and to keep baby cool.

The benefits to opting for these are they are wipeable and easy to clean.

Buying A Moses Basket Stand

A Moses basket stand needs to be sturdy enough for the Moses basket to feel really secure when placed on it.

There are various options for stands including rocking stands so that you can gently rock your baby to sleep or foldaway stands which can be stored away when they are not in use.

Buying A Moses Basket Mattress

Moses baskets usually come with a mattress so you will not always need to buy one separately.

If you are buying or have been given a second hand Moses basket, it is essential that you buy a new mattress for your newborn baby.

The mattress should be firm and flat to keep your baby sleeping safely. 

How Long Can A Baby Use A Moses Basket For?

Moses baskets are recommended for babies from age newborn to around four to six months, depending on baby’s size and weight.

Most Moses baskets can support babies up to 9kg.
