When choosing the baby’s first cot, one option is to use a Moses basket for the first months of life. Thanks to its small size, it can be placed comfortably in a small room next to the parent’s bed to attend to the newborn. They usually have handles or wheels and are light enough to carry around the house.
The Moses basket is a small bed, carrycot or bassinet, whose purpose is to provide comfort for the newborn while he/she gets used to living outside the mother’s womb. As it is a small space piece, it is warmer and cosier, perfect for the first three months of life.
They are becoming more and more popular thanks to their convenience when it comes to placing them in small spaces and being able to transport them easily. The trend of the moment is for wicker models, although there are also canvas ones. And they can be dressed up with fitted sheets, blankets, cooties, sacks, cushions, protective covers… to suit the parents’ tastes.
