REVIEW // IZZIWOTNOT WHITE GIFT WICKER MOSES BASKET


The last few weeks of a pregnancy the majority of mums to be are usually frantically trying to get everything in order before they pop or are getting impatient waiting for their new bundle of joy to arrive. My due date came and went and the Moses Basket was all set up and ready in the nursery, eagerly awaiting the arrival of a special little person. Well Harrison finally decided to grace us with his presence 10 days later and was born on January the 16th at 17:08pm. The following morning we arrived home from the hospital and brought the Moses Basket downstairs to transfer him into from the car seat as somewhere safe to sleep. He looked so small lying peacefully at the bottom end of the basket, he barely filled half of it and looked so small compared to how his big sister was in hers on the day we brought her home she was touching the sides. 


You can read our initial thoughts on the Izziwotnot Gift Moses Basket here which I shared before Harrisons arrival. We have now been using the basket for the past six weeks so I thought I would let you know how we've been getting along with it so far. One thing I have been extremely please about is the fact that Harrison took to sleeping in the basket straight away unlike his big sister who would refuse to sleep anywhere but on me! So the first night home he slept in his Moses Basket next to our bed which was such a relief! We have the Snuzpod bedside crib which attaches to the bed however we weren't expecting Harry to arrive so it wasn't attached or ready so the moses basket was great to take him upstairs in. 


We started using the moses basket during the day and the Snuzpod for night time, as it saved having to carry the basket up and down the stairs every morning and night. Although it is very easy to carry even one handed and Harrison never wakes up when we are carrying the basket. At six weeks old he is still sleeping in the basket downstairs during the daytime and there is still plenty of room for growth although he is looking much bigger in it these days! I would guess that we have another 2-3 months use of it before he outgrows it. 


The sturdy wooden frame is perfect for keeping your little one safe and elevated off the ground so you can easily keep an eye on them. It folds down easily and is compact to be easily kept away when not in use. I like the fact that the stand matches the moses basket and both complement each other so well. I chose the fresh white option which fits with our decor perfectly however the moses basket is also available in a natural wood or a rich mahogany tone as well which will all go with any decor. 


The only suggestion I have would be that it would be much easier if the stand didn't open all the way out when trying to put it up one handed as it just flips out the other way and you can't put the metal part on top to hold it together especially if you have a baby in one arm it can be rather tricky resulting in having to balance the stand up against your leg and an item of furniture. Other than that I can not fault this Moses Basket and would highly recommend purchasing it if you're looking for a high quality Moses basket which is safe for your little one to sleep.

You can purchase the White Gift Wicker Moses Basket for £110 and the matching stand is currently on offer for £34.95 both available from Izziwotnot. Izziwotnot have very kindly given me a 15% discount code off any purchase until the end of March to share with all of my readers! Simply enter AMELIA15 at the checkout!

  6. The frame looks unusual. Looks lovely though.
    We have a mama's & papas one and I've been carrying up and down the stairs in the evening and morning.

  8. I love this moses basket - white is my favourite colour and very gender neatral! They do grow out of them quickly but they are a life saver to have them napping near by with you - Layla would nap in the lounge, bedroom - anywhere its easy to move around!

  11. Aww it's lovely. We opted for a stiff wicker Moses basket this time as the sift wicker last time always seemed flimsy. I just wish they fitted in them longer. We have our in our lounge and I have no idea where we will put Beb to sleep when he outgrows it #TriedTested
