Why A Luxury Moses Basket Makes The Perfect Gift

A Little Green Sheep luxury Moses basket is both practical and stylish and makes the perfect sleep space for your newborn baby. Every single basket is beautifully crafted using natural materials to blend into your nursery decor seamlessly.

In addition, thanks to its durability, your Moses basket may be used until your baby is around four months old, making it an excellent choice!

So, what should you look for in a luxury Moses basket?


Choosing Moses Basket Material

We recommend choosing a basket made from high-quality natural materials such as palm leaf, which is durable and long-lasting. Wicker and bamboo are also excellent raw materials due to their breathability – perfect for keeping your baby cool in summer.

For a touch of luxury, look for a Moses basket with a padded liner and blanket. This adds an extra layer of comfort for your baby and can be removed and machine washed – perfect for those inevitable accidents!

Style & Design

Luxury Moses baskets should be stylish and comfortable, and there are plenty of gorgeous Little Green Sheep designs to choose from. Our top pick is the Honey, made from beautiful hand-woven palm leaf and comes complete with a cotton knitted liner, Moses basket stand and mattress.

But how do you choose which design or style is right for you? Well, we always suggest picking a luxury Moses basket that blends into your nursery and decor choice. After all, you’ll likely be spending a lot of time there!

If you want something that makes a real statement, go for a basket with bold colours or patterns. If you prefer something more subdued, opt for classic neutral colours such as white, ivory or grey.

Remember, the style of your Moses basket is entirely up to you – so pick something that you absolutely love!

Moses Basket or Crib?

Once your baby outgrows their Moses basket, they’ll need to move into a crib. But what’s the difference between the two?

Moses baskets are smaller and more compact than regular cribs, making them ideal for small nurseries or cramped bedrooms. They’re also much lighter, so a luxury Moses basket is a perfect choice if you have to move your sleeping baby around often.

Cribs, on the other hand, are larger and can accommodate a growing baby. They also tend to be sturdier than Moses baskets, so a crib may be a better option if you have an active toddler.

At the end of the day, it’s entirely your choice – so choose the sleep space that you think will work best for you and your family.

Choosing A Moses Basket Stand

Our Moses baskets can be purchased as is - but many buyers prefer to choose a Moses basket bundle which includes a stand and a mattress.

This saves the hassle of shopping around for a compatible stand and means you can be sure that your basket will fit perfectly.

We offer a range of different stands, from classic wooden designs to rocking models.

Our 'rocking' Moses basket stands help soothe your baby back to sleep. It’s perfect for those late-night feeds or when your little one just won’t settle.

Simply place your Moses basket on the stand and rock gently back and forth. The smooth, rhythmic motion is incredibly calming for both you and your baby – helping you both get some much-needed rest!

We highly recommend a Moses basket stand as part of your nursery setup.


Moses Basket Bedding

When it comes to choosing baby bedding - The Little Green Sheep can offer a range of gorgeous, natural and organic materials to line your Moses basket.

We believe that only the best is good enough for your baby – which is why we use 100% cotton to make our liners, blankets and sheets.

Our luxury bedding is kind to sensitive skin and will help your baby sleep soundly through the night. Plus, it’s machine washable – making it easy to keep clean.

Caring For Your Luxury Moses Basket

Little Green Sheep Moses baskets are made from quality materials, including palm leaf and knitted cotton - and these natural organic materials require extra special care.

To keep your Moses basket in pristine condition, we recommend spot cleaning where possible and hand washing the liner every 2-3 weeks. The blanket can be machine washed on a cool setting, but be sure to air dry it afterwards.

And finally, always keep your Moses basket away from direct sunlight or heat sources to avoid drying out the palm leaf.

With proper care, your luxury Moses basket will last for years – making it an excellent investment for your baby’s nursery.

Is a luxury Moses basket better than a bassinet?

Both offer a safe and comfortable place for your baby to sleep, but a Moses basket is often more convenient. Bassinets tend to be larger and bulkier, making them difficult to move around the house.

Can I use a Moses basket as a travel cot?

Yes, our luxury Moses baskets make excellent travel cots! They’re lightweight and easy to transport, so you can take them with you when you go on holiday or visit family and friends. Just be sure to pack all the bedding and accessories you need to keep your baby comfortable.

Do I need a special stand for my Moses basket?

No, you don’t need a special stand – but we recommend using one for extra stability. Our rocking Moses basket stand is perfect for soothing your baby back to sleep.

How long can my baby use a Moses basket?

Most babies will outgrow their Moses basket around 4-6 months old. Once they start to sit up or rollover, it’s time to move them into a cot or crib. But, our luxury baskets can make excellent storage baskets afterwards!
