9 of the best Moses baskets for newborns to help your baby sleep soundly

Add these must-have Moses baskets to your shopping list

Chloe Best

A Moses basket has long been a popular choice for parents buying their baby's first bed, but knowing which one to choose can prove confusing.

As babies must sleep in the same room as you for at least the first six months, Moses baskets are a must-have for parents who either haven't got room for a cot in their bedroom, or want a smaller, cosy option for their newborn to sleep in.

Another benefit to Moses baskets is that they 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.

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, along with the Moses basket stands and sheets you'll also need for your newborn.
