How did this product make your life easier?

Alison: As a busy Mum of a baby and toddler, anything that makes life easier is greatly valued. Prior to receiving this 'Moses basket', I already actively used a popular brand of bedside crib upstairs and the pram bassinet downstairs, but to my surprise, as soon as we started testing the Moses Basket it became the preferred place for my daughter to rest. The basket is light, yet feels sturdy and is extremely easy to move between rooms and levels of the house - which is a real bonus in comparison to our wooden bedside crib. I have loved that I can easily take the baby around to where my toddler is without needing to disturb her sleep. It is also a great feature that the wool lining of the basket can be easily removed for laundering, which for me makes this basket stand out from others on the market which does not lend themselves to easy cleaning.

Rebecca: A really lovely Moses basket, good solid base to the basket which provides excellent support for baby. Other baskets I have tried are more flexible at the base and I feel they don't support the baby well enough. But this was not the case here. My baby was very happy to lie in the basket. It had a lovely softcover which was easy to wash, and the quality was excellent.

Sarah: This Moses basket makes my life easier as a mum as I know that I have a safe space I can leave my baby to sleep and rest whilst I get on with everyday life. It is great that I can pick the Moses basket up and take it with me into different rooms so that I can continue my life as normally as possible. It has meant that on my partner going back to work I have been able to shower and continue with household chores whilst watching the baby.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Hannah: I would recommend this to a fellow mum due to the high quality of the product, the look and how easy it is to move around the house, this means that your baby can come with you. Every new mum wants their baby to be safe and comfortable which these products allows. My little girl loves being in the Moses basket and goes to sleep happily.

Juliette: I love the company's commitment to using natural materials and zero chemicals in the design of their product. Even though the basket has been made with sustainability in mind it doesn't compromise on the quality. The fabric lining is so soft and looks very stylish. It's also very reassuring that the mattress is made with natural fibres. It's also lightweight with a foldable stand, which makes it very portable.

Bérengère: This Moses basket is very easy to assemble. The cable net made of wool looks adorable and makes it a comfortable place for the baby to rest or sleep. It is also easy to clean. I think this product offers a good combination of nice to look at and easy to use, which makes it a good item to own when you have a newborn.

Would you choose this product to win?

Laura: What would make me pick this Moses basket compared to other cots, baskets and cribs is firstly the price. For an item that would only really be of use for the first 6 months, it is approx half the price of other bedside cribs. The classic, simple design would also make me choose it, but the organic materials are a big selling point for me compared to other cots, cribs, and baskets.

Hannah: I would choose this product over any other of the market due to the high quality and comfort that it provided for my baby. I feel that the quality is worth the money and that any new baby would enjoy sleeping it in. I feel that the organic nature of the product is a plus as it allows parents to feel confident that they are providing their baby with the best.

Juliette: I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this product to others and think it is a deserved winner. Mainly for its beautiful quality and the company's commitment to being sustainable with the organic knit liner, and chemical-free mattress, which feels very luxurious! For the quality, I think it is a very good value for money and also looks very stylish too!

What changes would you make to this product?

Katharine: I think it should come with a mattress protector as standard. This would mean that it was ready for use immediately and without any ‘hidden’ costs. The cover is available on the website with guidance that it is strongly recommended. The product is otherwise all set up and ready to go which is nice and convenient.

Rachael: I would offer or include a canopy hood affair to dim the light a little. This is not essential but when you have a summer baby the daylight can be quite bright and these may help to make it easier for little ones to settle. This would avoid having to move the basket around with changing the light in the room.

Alison: The only change I would make is to the fixed base supplied, I would prefer a base with a rocking feature and option to give a slight tilt to the basket for babies with reflux. A rocking base would be useful for soothing baby to sleep, but this may be available as an option to purchasers. I would rank these as very minor suggestions for what is an excellent product.
