John Lewis Make a Wish Moses Basket, White/Grey
I was slightly sceptical about this Moses Basket after reading the inital reviews but I took a chance as my neice was so in love with it. I have to say, I am overly impressed with the quality of the Basket, and my neice is happy with it too.
The Basket feels really sturdy and looks really snug. I bought this a while ago and it is still in great condition - i would reccommend this :-)

Poor Quality - Handle broke.
The Moses basket was purchased for our daughter. However, after 6 weeks, the handle snapped in half while we were carrying her from one room to the next. Luckily, she didn't fall out of the basket or she would have ended up in A&E!
She weighs just over 4kg so well within the weight limit for the Moses basket.
The hood doesn't stay up at all. We tried tightening the screws and it still wouldn't stay up.
We ended up having to return the basket and get our money back.
The basket looks lovely but that's the only positive that I can say about it.

This basket was a gift for my 1st newborn child from my grandparents. The basket is nice looking , however this is the only good thing about it.
- After just 3 weeks my handle broke ( this was the whole handle snapping in half) when my 7,14lbs baby was in it ( the baby fell out luckily it was from a small height, this could of ended up in A and E ) this was a huge shock as john lewis claims that this goes up to 9kg and tested by the team
- The hood also does not stay up
- Sharp edges on the basket itself
I would not recommend this product to anyone and extremely surprised the standard and safety element of this product

Waste of money
I'm really upset about this product as John Lewis have such a respectable reputation on baby / kids products and by far this product is a big let down.
1, the canopy does not go fully up it flops down, therefore rather pointless.
2. The basket is not level and is wobbly
3. When moving the mattress there are little dints on other side.
4. Straps are too small (ideal for gIant hands)
I'm extremely disappointed with this and its so frustrating as I'm still recovering with my labour and unable to pop to store. I will never recommend this to anyone.

A beautiful basket that is strong and sturdy. It fits well on our stand and is a secure place for our baby to sleep.
The only question I have is how to clean the lining? Please help, I have tried to loosen the screws but unfortunately they are not moving. There does not seem to be a way that I can find to remove the lining in order for it to be washed and this is needed as it is now very dirty after two months of use.
Apart from this a good buy.

Present for new grandaughter
Bought this as a gift for our new grandaughter. Lovely moses basket, light weight and easy to carry, beautifully finished complete with padded mattress and cover. Would recommend this product to be bought with stand as we did. Would make a great present for new baby, have no hesitation in recommending this product.

The basket doesn't fit the stand good
I bourtgh this basket Moses for my daughter, as it looked good in store. Also bourtgh the rocking stand to go with it . When it put together the basket doesn't fit the stand it squeaked and keep the baby a wake as soon I put her in it . We now have to put a blanket between the basket and the stand to make it quite. I do not recommend this product.

Very pleased with this product amazing quality and looks absolutely gorgeous. Received the Iteam very quickly, I ordered it on a saturday and received it that Monday. I would give this product a 5 star and would recommend to all.
Don't listen to the other reviews, I nearly never bought it because of them but I'm so pleased I did. I also bought the stand, it fits perfectly and is strong and steady.
