How To Choose The Perfect Moses Basket

Corner Cloud Light

It’s that time of year again! The days are longer, the weather is warm, and you have or are ready to welcome a new baby into your life. Congratulations from all of us at Kinder Valley. There’s just one thing… Before you can even think about picking up a new outfit for your little one, you need to start thinking about how they’ll sleep.

A Moses basket is one of the most popular bassinet styles available today. They are compact, lightweight, and easy to move around. They also come in many different colours and styles so you can match them with any décor or theme you might have going on at home. (Coordination is key, right?)

However, we know choosing the right one can be difficult. There are so many things that you need to think about, and it can be overwhelming, to say the least. With the summer months upon us, we’ve made it easy for you by outlining what you need to look for when making your decision.

The Two Ps

Summer and a busy social life regularly come hand in hand. Therefore, practicality and portability are key when thinking about your new Moses basket. Whether you’re staying the night at a family member’s house or hosting a gathering in your garden, a Moses basket is reliable due to the two P’s outlined above. Here at Kinder Valley, we have a variety of Moses baskets that fit all our basket stands and are both light and easy to store. Choose between our Wicker and Palm Moses Baskets, both providing you with the option to move your baby around depending on their needs, what you are up to, the heat and circumstances.

Easy Assembly

Our Opal Folding Moses Basket Stand in White is perfect for its practicality. Crafted from durable solid pine wood, this stand has adjustable straps and a folding mechanism for easy storage and transportation. Fitting all of our palm and wicker Moses baskets, this easy-to-assemble stand is the perfect addition to your portable basket to add that extra sturdiness and height you’re looking for.

Breathable and Water-Resistant Materials

On the topic of hot weather, it’s super important that the Moses basket you select contains a mattress that is breathable and water-resistant. The last thing you want is for your baby to become even hotter than they already are due to their bedding materials. We recommend our Broderie Anglaise Cream Palm, Tiny Ted Pink Palm and Blue Kite Palm Moses Baskets for your little one.  

Shade & Sustainability

How else can you ensure your baby is fully protected from the sun’s bright beams in the summer months whilst they sleep? Luckily for you, we have also introduced adjustable fabric hoods to our baskets, ensuring your baby always has shade if necessary. Plus, our baskets are either wicker or palm hand-woven, making them a sustainable choice.
