Izziwotnot White Premium Wicket Moses Basket and Stand* | available online
I think one of this first and biggest things any mums-to-be think about before their baby arrives is the matter of sleep! Where will they sleep? How long will they sleep for? How do I get them to sleep? I certainly worried myself too with these questions but thankfully with the arrival of this gorgeous Moses Basket from Izziwotnot, the issue of daytime naps was quickly resolved.
The Izziwotnot Moses Baskets are classically beautiful and I had been eyeing them up ever since I found out I was pregnant. Available in four different colour finishes (white, grey, oak and mahogany) they promise not to be an eye-soar in any living room or bedroom. We already had the Snuzpod set up in our room, connected to our bed, for our baby’s evening sleeps so a Moses Basket was the perfect option to have downstairs for those daytime naps so little one could be close by whilst I pottered around the house. However the Moses Basket would be perfect to have upstairs too for the night as well. I adore the simple design of this Moses – soft, stylish and wonderfully cosy – it includes a supportive foam PEVA mattress, adjustable pretty hood and appliquéd blanket to keep the little one snug. With the stylish leather handles it is easy to move the basket from room to room and light and small enough to take away with you if you are travelling and staying away from home with your newborn.
The stand, sold separately, keeps the basket elevated at the perfect height and has a gorgeous hourglass design. Also available in the four colour ways to coordinate or contrast with your basket, it is light and conveniently portable with its easy to fold away function. I have loved using the Izziwotnot Moses over the last seven weeks since Florence has graced our lives and I will always remember that precious moment we brought her home from the hospital for the first time and placed her in there – watching her intently and thinking just how tiny she looked in the basket. I think I will be a bit sad when she finally outgrows it but considering she is still so dinky I think we still have a good 4 or 5 months left of using the basket before we have to think about migrating her to a big girl’s cot!
