Moses baskets are often a favourite choice of baby bed. The closeness and shape of the space inside a Moses basket is meant to replicate the womb, to ensure your little one feels safe and secure as they sleep.
They are a smaller, cosier option compared to a cot and are lightweight and portable enough to be carried around the house, so your baby can nap in whichever room you need to be in during the day.

Health experts recommend that newborn babies sleep in the same room as their parents for the first six months to reduce the risk of SIDS, the unexplained and sudden death of a newborn under twelve months old, and Moses baskets are a popular choice for parents.
Whether you're looking for a luxury Moses basket or a budget buy, a traditional basket or a more modern alternative, we've rounded up some of the best on the market.
