Mattress for Moses Basket
Moses baskets are designed for new-born babies to sleep in for their first months of their life. Moses baskets allow parents to have their baby close to them during the night where they can watch their movements and breathing. It’s also much easier to hear them if they begin to cry.
It is very important to have the right type of Moses basket mattress for your baby to sleep on. Very young babies should sleep on their back and need good support from a firm mattress. It also needs to be breathable. Most Moses baskets will come with a foam mattress, but you may want to look into buying a different mattress, such as one which is made from natural materials. Ensure your baby’s mattress is supportive, breathable and fits your Moses basket.
