Baby Moses Basket Stands and Accessories

One of the most common questions we get asked about our Moses Baskets, is what Moses Basket stand will fit and often about bassinet sheets as well.

So we decided to put together this list of recommended products to compliment your Moses Basket so that you get the most use out of your Moses Basket and Bub has the ultimate in comfort (hopefully resulting in the ultimate sleep!).

 Baby Moses Basket Stand

Baby Moses Basket Stands 

We are lucky enough to work direct with a team of basket weavers based in Ghana. This means that we can request changes to the standard specifications for the Baby Moses Baskets. We noticed that regular Moses Baskets tend to be slightly too wide for the standard Moses Basket stands currently on the market. With this in mind, we have custom ordered our Moses Baskets to specifically fit most Moses Basket Stands.

We recommend using the following Baby Moses Basket Stands with our baskets: 

Bebe Care Moses Basket Stand 

This is the moses basket stand we use in our photo shoots (as shown above) and you will see in some of our product images. We found this stand to be really sturdy and stable, it’s light and easy to fold, it also comes fully assembled, which is always a bonus! It is available in white or walnut from most baby stores, although it might be under the brand name ChildCare. It is available at Baby Bunting, which has stores around Australia. The best online deal we have found is from Harvey Norman (in walnut only) for $67 plus free delivery. Your welcome!

Jolly Jumper Moses Basket Stand

This is a generous sized moses basket stand that will generally fit most moses baskets. This moses basket stand has rocking chair legs so will provide a gentle rocking motion. I don’t believe there is an option to stop the rocking so that the stand can be secured in a fixed position. This baby moses stand does require assembly and will not collapse for easy storage. Unfortunately this stand is not readily available in Australia and will need to be shipped from the US or Canada. It is available on Amazon or we did find some at this Baby Store for $45 that will deliver to Australia for a cost of $20. The Jolly Jumper basket stand comes in white or espresso.

DIY Baby Moses Basket Stand

Recently we came across an American DIY blog website that is full of inspirational DIY projects with easy to follow instructions and videos to show steps. They have DIY steps to making your own Baby Moses Basket Stand. And it looks fantastic! Keep in mind, dimensions and measurements are in the US system so you will need to convert to AU metric system. Apart from that it looks fairly straight forward to follow so why not give it a go - get Hubby onto it! Instructions can be found here.

Baby Moses Basket Mattress

When selecting a moses basket mattress it is important to get the right size dimensions to avoid any gaps on either side that could cause the baby to get caught. There should be no gaps larger than 2cm. Please refer to SIDs website for more information. 

We have Australian made superior support mattresses available that will fit your moses basket snuggly. It comes with a removable cotton liner that can be easily washed if required. It has been protected with Perma-Guard to prevent microbes, bacteria, dust mites, mould and mildew. Moses Basket Mattresses are available here

 

Baby Moses Basket Sheets 

Our baby moses basket mattresses will fit standard size bassinet sheets (approx 76cm x 40cm).

There are many options out there and the following are our top choices for moses basket sheets:

Lion & Lamb Kids

Baby Moses Basket Fitted Sheets

Add a pop of boho to your nursery space with Lion & Lamb Kids’ hand dyed, fitted bassinet sheets. They are silky soft as each sheet is made from organic bamboo cotton. We love that Lion & Lamb Kids use bamboo as it’s resistant to odour, mold, mildew, and bacteria even after numerous washings. It is also Hypo Allergenic. Bamboo is highly absorbent, very breathable, and ultra-soft. This makes it both luxurious and practical as well.

Lion and Lamb Kids also hand dye bamboo muslin swaddles that are oh so soft. Baby swaddles and wraps are also ideal to use as a sheet cover for the baby moses basket.

Little Sprig Linen

Baby Moses Basket Blankets

For a pastel or monochrome look, we can’t go past the range available at Little Sprig Linen. Hand Dyed bamboo swaddles are soft against babies skin, breathable to prevent overheating and incredibly versatile. Little Sprig Linen have many designs available and all at a reasonable price. 

We love to support Fair Trade, sustainable living practices and small business. As we continue to discover new likeminded businesses, we will add them to our Baby Moses Basket Accessories page here.

With Love From Ghana - Chapter 2 - Getting Settled

Life in Ghana is very different to Australia and as can be expected, it's been quite an adjustment for the whole family. It's actually been pretty crazy when we look back over the past months and what we have achieved. From finding a new home, dealing with scrupulous landlords, selecting a school for the kids that would be the right fit, feeling like a L plate driver learning to drive for the first time on these crazy lawless roads and learning to live with inefficient services we consider basic like garbage collection, power and water services - but it's not all been stress and chaos, we've already made great friendships, amazing new connections and have been enjoying quality time with family, learning to slow down and take the time to appreciate the small things...

We finally made it to Ghana after an epic 27 hour flight! The kids were (surprisingly) great on the flight. They just loved the unrestricted movie time and my lil bub was happy to snuggle into Mama for the most part. It's been a funny experience leading up to this point with lots of mixed reactions from family, friends and random strangers who hear about our big move to Ghana. It's sad that most commonly we get asked if it is safe - like I'd be taking my kids to a country that isn't safe?! - as strange as the question is, its not overly surprising given how negative Africa is portrayed in our media. Our first week in Ghana has been anything but negative <3
