The Top 5 Benefits of Using a Moses Basket Stand
1. Getting Your Moses Basket Elevated Off The Ground
Having a baby bed located on the ground poses a few different concerns. One issue would be poor visibility. The last thing you want to do is trip over the Moses basket during a late night trip to the bathroom. Placing your Moses basket on a cold floor surface is also not a desired way to have your baby sleep through the night.
Using a Moses basket stand can eliminate these potential problems. Baby will now be elevated to a more comfortable position where it is easier to move them from the Moses basket during feeding or changing time. Baby is now positioned at a more suitable level thus reducing the risk of having a late night miss-step resulting in an accident. Also, air can flow freely through the basket base to help prevent overheating
Using a Moses basket stand offers greater portability than a stationary bassinet, cradle or crib. The stand is lightweight and easy to transport to any room of the house and can also be packed up and placed in the car to be used at work or grandma’s house. If you find that baby and you sleep better in separate rooms its an easy move. If you find that you need baby right next to your bed you can conveniently position the stand next to you to make for easy transition from the Moses basket to your arms when its time for that late night feeding.
3. Rock Baby to Sleep
Some Moses basket stands are fixed for extra stability wile some allowing you to rock your baby to sleep. While rocking motions are very soothing for a baby, these stands are not as stable.
4. Save Space
Using a Moses basket and stand is not only convenient but its a great way to save space. It becomes a great alternative to a standard bassinet, cradle or crib that often demand more living space. If you don’t have much room to spare this becomes a great option. Remember, it can easily be moved to another room or corner if you find that your space is limited in your current setup.
Still not sold on the benefits of using a Moses basket with stand? Here is the best news and its the relatively low cost of the the two items combined compared to often pricier bassinets, cradles and cribs. A typical Moses basket will cost anywhere between £40-100. A Moses basket stand cost from £20-50. For both products you are looking at a total cost of £80-150.
Many cradles range from upwards of £150 with the majority costing around £2-300. You will usually find that you will need a cradle bedding set to accompany your cradle purchase and that can add another £100 to your bill. Since your eventual cot purchase will be the most costly expense, typically starting at £150+, a Moses basket and stand make for a great low cost option for the first few months.
