John Lewis Waffle Moses Basket, White
Very good value for money.
Excellent product. Very easy to transport around the house.
Basket is good quality and looks we'll made too.

I'm dumbfounded by the bad reviews for this product. I rarely write reviews and am extremely particular about my buys but I have to say this is a wonderful moses basket.
I was a little unsure if the quality would be reflected buy the reasonable price but it's not at all. My little girls been in it for 3 months and it's still extremely sturdy and looks beautiful. The mattress is a fraction smaller than the basket (as it should be) but certainly not to the point of ever actually being noticed or being a problem as mentioned in some of the other reviews.
Beautiful, clean, strong product, well done John Lewis.

Bought as was cheap but expected better quality from John Lewis despite its price. The handle on one side is unraveling and when I first got it had to trim it as wicker were poking out and was scared would poke the baby in the eye.
Also the hood doesn't stay up by itself (have to hook it onto the handles) or is big enough to cover the basket when up.
Otherwise it was fine in terms of mattress size.

Cheap, but not worth the money
This basket wasn't up to JL's usual high standards.
We expected such a cheap basket not to have all the bells and whistles - we didn't mind due to the price and because we don't intend to use it for long.
However, the appearance and feel of the whole thing was much more flimsy than we expected. The base was not flat - one side was higher than the other and would have been uncomfortable even when covered by the mattress. The hood attachment didn't stay up (as we knew from reading previous reviews) but also looked really cheap and tacky. The base of the moses basket is longer than regular moses basket mattress sizes so we weren't able to buy a better quality mattress for it (unless we got a bespoke mattress made).
We returned it.

Happy with size and quality. Hood does not stay upright though.

Does the job but hood falls down
This basket is perfectly fine for your baby's first few months, our little boy sleeps really well in it. Our only criticism is that the hood doesn't stay up which is really annoying, there isn't really a mechanism to keep it up as such so once you have used it a few times it just loosens and collapses.

Regretted buying this
We bought this for our first baby but the sides were very flimsy and after a couple of months, it started to sag and felt like our baby could roll right out of it. We took it back and got our money back. We're about to have baby number two and considering which basket and certainly would not consider this one. It is cheaper compared to many but you certainly get what you pay for so it is worth spending a bit more.

Mattress doesn't fit!
I bought this and then read the reviews whilst waiting for it to be delivered. Seeing that some people saw the mattress was too small I made sure I didn't rip open the clear plastic wrapping before checking the size of the mattress. It is far too small for the basket and so it's been returned. I wouldn't recommend buying this Moses basket.
