Rated 1 out of 5 by Evanse Disappointing
We have now been using this Moses basket for less than 8 weeks. We were initially pleased with it and it appeared a good purchase for our newborn. However, a few drawbacks: 1. The hood - it never stays up so we ended up removing it as it had no purpose. 2. The handles - the material is so stiff and was so bent into the basket when we received it that it was difficult to move them so they weren't leaning into the basket with the baby - an obvious risk of entanglement with baby's arms etc. Now having tried to gently bend the handles so they stay out of the basket the handles have just snapped.
Again, I realise there is no functional purpose to either of these features but it is disappointing and certainly not the usual standards nor quality you would expect from john lewis, especially for a product aimed at new born babies, and one that I would expect to last a fair few months.
Good job our baby is growing fast and soon to be moved out of this basket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Abbies Size - be careful
Just a word of warning. I bought this Moses basket in 2012 for my first child and loved it. Expecting my second this year I wanted to reuse the basket and buy a new mattress. And bought the mattress size recommended online. I was assured in store as one of their best selling items this Moses basket had not changed however the mattress size recommended here is way too big.
The basket must have changed since 2012 as the old model requires the 66x29cm mattress
JL now refusing to refund original mattress bought even though it was bought on their advice

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sarah286 Lovely moses basket
I didn't want to spend a fortune on a moses basket as everyone tells you they're not in them for long, also wanted a gender neutral one as I don't know what I'm having and this fits the bill perfectly. So many white moses baskets are still frilly and girly but this one is lovely and suitable for a boy or girl. Haven't used it yet as baby hasn't arrived but I'm very happy with my purchase so far. Also bought the white stand to go with it and they look lovely together. Click & collect service at Waitrose was excellent - the basket comes in a very big box so I had trouble getting it in my little car but a member of staff helped me out with it and took the box away for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mairio Don't buy an expensive Moses basket!
I chose this Moses basket as I'd been advised that you wouldn't use them for very long so I didn't want to spend a lot. However, it is so much longer than other Moses baskets I've seen since (friends and ones I've just spotted in shops# so my little girl fitted in it until she was over 4 months old, and she's a long baby. The only reason I moved her out of it was because I realised she wanted more room for her arms to stretch out at her sides, and because she was so much older than I expected I just put her into her cot in her own room at that point which saved me buying a crib that would fit in our room #and probably wouldn't have solved the arm problem). The quality is excellent for the price, from what other's have told me you rarely get a hood that stays up but this one did pretty well but to be honest it doesn't really matter, and the sides aren't padded or anything but that's irrelevant - the lining is nice and easy to wash. I didn't use the blanket that came with it but it looks pretty. I bought JL fitted Moses basket sheets and they fitted perfectly. Stop looking and buy this one!
