I'm a first time mom so I didn't know what to expect when it comes to my daughter's sleep patterns. My husband and I sleep on a mattress on the floor so co-sleepers and bassinets that required me to stand up out of bed then struggle to lay back down again with a newborn in my arms was out of the question - this basket fit the bill perfectly. It turns out that this is the only "bed" she'll sleep in. We bring it downstairs and have her sleep in it in the living room while we do our thing. It also comes to relatives' houses with us so she can nap, and it's so much more compact than pack'n'plays! I also love that if she falls asleep downstairs in it, we can just pick up the basket and carry her upstairs in it instead of having to disturb her.
My only gripe about this product is that that pad isn't very comfortable, so I recommend wrapping a soft blanket around it. Otherwise it's money very well spent.
I really liked this product tho I bought it for a reborn doll I have it on display in my home. I loved how it looked altho the hood being attached with the velcro was great I didn't like the fact that you could see all the velcro. I covered it with ribbon and it looks fine.
I would suggest this to anyone who wants it for a doll or a baby it is really beautiful.
This is a very nice item. It is way bigger than I thought it would be so I'm a little concerned about how difficult it will be to carry with a baby in it. It seems like it will be a comfy place for baby to lay, but I don't know how practical it'll be for actually taking baby places outside of the home. The basket is bigger than a carrier/carseat so it wouldn't fit on a restaraunt booth or seat or any place with limmitted space. I did quite a bit a research before buying it, and if you do have your heart set on a Moses Basket Walmart.com offers the same quality as other brands (it's just like the one I wanted that was selling for over $430 through PoshKids) but the cost is far less here than anywhere else.
I just bought this for my stepson and daughter-in-law for their daughter due in jan '13. They fell in love with it and neither had ever seen one before. When my sons were babies I couldn't have imagined not having one or at least something similar. It's a big anxiety saver when travelling with a baby, not having to worry about him/her rolling off a bed at a friend's or relative's house, and i hate seeing a baby having to be otherwise strapped into a carseat or bouncy seat to get that peace of mind. Under $40 and absolutely worth every penny. Don't carry the playpen around till baby is at least 3 months old. Just put the baby gear in here and you have a bed for baby when you get to your destination. An awesome buy!!!
I received this basket as a baby shower gift. The construction of the basket itself is wonderful; I like the way that the braided handle continues along the sides and bottom of the basket for added stability and security.
What others have said here about the ribbon being a little on the cheap side is absolutely true, but it's fixable. It's thinner and floppier than the picture implies and the bows just sort of droop. The ends aren't fray-checked, so the ends of all my ribbons were quite frayed when the basket arrived.
I invested $6 in ribbon...two spools of 1" white satin and one spool of wider...and redid the ribbon wrap along the front rim (double wrapped forward and backward, much prettier). And it is true that the velcro is exposed along the bottom of the hood and doesn't quite match up. I used one spool of the 1" ribbon to cross-wrap the hood to the basket, because I don't intend to remove the hood at all. It turned out very pretty, and I finished it off with three large boutique-style bows made from the wider ribbon. There are multiple ways to fray-check the ends, just do a search online for how to make boutique hairbows.
The lining and sheet seem coarse and rough at first, but after washing and drying, they were much softer. The lining in particular softened and puffed nicely, and now the basket is very cushy and inviting-looking.
I was thrilled to get this as a baby shower gift! The few issues were very fixable and now pose no problem at all.
I was having trouble finding a way to wrap all the gifts that I bought for the baby shower so I decided to get the bassinett and wrap everything in it...I was happy that I did that because the bassinett was perfect for when the parents travel to have somewhere to lay the baby down that they knew was clean and safe....I was told it was the best gift that they received and that they never even thought of it for themselves....
Three years ago, I bought this basket. It was absolutely beautiful! It had a pink and white toile liner & bedding with a pink gingham blanket. This style has been discontinued. For some reason, Badger has decided to replace their beautiful liners and bedding of the past with inferior, unattractive ones. They have also added on ugly bows. (Ribbon wound around the hood and sides.)
The ribbon is extremely cheap and flimsy. Takes away from the WHOLE effect of the basket. In some other reviews I have read, people are
just buying the basket and threading their own ribbon, as well as buying their own bedding. The sad part is, Badger is one of the FEW companies that sells a Moses basket WITH HOOD. This is a very "sought after" feature. As I was so happy with the last basket, I decided to buy another one! It was pictured online as pink gingham with
a white ruffle. When it arrived, the ruffle and bedsheet were actually lavender and DID NOT MATCH! Looked terrible with the pink and white gingham liner!
I saw another one in Babies R Us in the sage color. It too, had the lavender ruffle & sheet
that DID NOT MATCH. The ribbon on the basket was already shredding. The liner only stays in the basket if it is tied on with the flimsy ribbon. In the past, the basket liners were made with elastic that simply pulled down over the sides
of the basket. This was such a beautiful product...now it looks very trashy. BADGER...get rid of the ribbon & bring back the beautiful liners you had three years ago! This basket is still a good buy...a great price, but it needs to be stripped down & have the junky materials replaced. I personally decided to return this basket and have purchased one with a pink & white toile liner (Tadpole brand) like the one I had from Badger three years ago. It cost a little more & doesn't have a hood, but I would be embarrassed to give the Badger one as a gift without "refurbishing" it!
The moses basket looks really nice. We are very happy with it. She'll be in it for a few months. We'll use it around the house and when we go to people's homes for visits. And hopefully when she gets older she'll play with her dolls and the basket. I had no problem with the hood. Just get some extra ribbon if you'd like to tighten the hood to the basket or decorate the basket a little further. You will need an extra sheets/blanket inside the basket.
I would purchase this for my daughter to play with her dolls, not for my infant to lay in!
great to take anywhere and use at home, nice looking for boy or girl. good deal for the basket. i looked other places and got a better deal at walmart
I am VERY pleased with this product. My daughter and I had done a lot of research and shopping before purchasing this basket. We found that this basket was just as good as any we had found in stores and on the internet and was priced well below other sites. Then there was the added convenience of having it shipped directly to a store near our home.
I was thrilled when I recieved the Moses Basket. I had seen other baskets in children's specialty stores and did not want to pay the price they were $100.00 and up)
This was given to my daugther at her baby shower.. She loved it. It will become a family heirloom i'm sure
Thanks so much!!!!
Beautifully made. Excellent quality. Linens very nice, also. Mommy loves it, too. Great portability !
Absolutely cute, soft and cozy bed for a little one!!! I have purchased this basket for my baby-girl and I am very happy with the purchase in all aspects: look, quality and price. Its good for carrying your baby around the house as its a very lightweight as well as for use outdoors with the hood. Small enough for ur newborn to feel comfortable and safe in this basket.
I love this basket for the price and will use it right when I have my baby! Not sure when that baby will come but this helps out so I am ready for a sleeping place!
I bought this basket for my sister when she gave birth to my nephew. Since then she's given birth to my niece. She has used this basket for both children and has been very pleased with it. She uses it all the time. It's so easy to take with her. When she brings the baby over for me to watch she just throws the basket in the car and I don't have to set up the pack n play every time. It's just wonderful!
I bought this moses basket to bring my newborn to work with me at my shop and it is wonderful. there is tons of room to hold her and she sleeps so peacefully while I'm at work.
What a nice moses basket. The liner is a real pretty pink and looks great. My family loves it.
Product was even better than I expected. I love it. So pretty! The price was great also.
This made a wonderful shower gift. Some friends and I split the cost to get the basket and fill it with all sorts of goodies and baby clothes. Was so cute! Wish we had taken a photo!
