Are Moses Baskets Safe?
This type of baby basket has been used for eons and the name derives from when Moses was left in a basket in the bulrushes. The materials haven't changed much as has the design because it has proved to be safe and effective.
They are made from natural materials such as palm, wicker and maize as babies are more sensitive to man made materials. This makes the basket lightweight yet sturdy allowing them to be easily moved from room to room as your baby should sleep in the same room as you day or night. The basket design also makes baby feel comfortable and secure.
All the materials from the basket to the bedding are specifically designed for small babies so they are protected and comforted to be safe for your baby.
