    Moses Baskets & Cribs FAQs

    The key differences between a Moses basket and a crib, is a Moses basket has a solid body but cribs typically have bars, fabric or slats that allow you to easily
    check on your baby during the night. Unlike a Moses basket, cribs are larger
    and can be used for longer periods of time. They also provide a sense of spaciousness and security for your little one.

    Moses baskets are ideal for babies from birth up to 3-6 months, or until they can sit
    or pull themselves up on their own. Depending on the model, Moses baskets typically have a recommended weight limit of 9kg or less, as soon as your child
    reaches a heavier weight you should move them into a cot.

    Yes. For the first six months, it's best to keep your baby close by and sleeping in a cot, crib, or Moses basket next to your bed. This allows you to quickly attend to your little one for feeding or cuddles. The added bonus of a Moses basket is that it's lightweight and portable, making it an ideal and space-saving choice for room-to-room sleeping.

    Yes, when used correctly Moses baskets are completely safe.

    To ensure your Moses basket is safe, make sure it has a firm, entirely flat, and waterproof base, with no soft or cushioned areas, particularly around baby’s head. Soft mattresses are known to increase the risk of SIDS as they make it harder for babies to lose body heat, which can cause them to overheat. The surface of the mattress should be firm enough that when your baby is placed on it, their head does not sink in more than a few millimetres.

    You can test the firmness of a mattress using the “safe hand test”. To do this, press your hand down on the mattress and when you lift your hand up if your handprint is there the surface is not a safe sleeping surface for a baby or toddler.
