    Hi, Ladies!
    I am planning to buy Moses Basket or Bassinet for baby
    but I am not guite sure the differences between these two.

    Could anyone tell me the differences of these two (or
    pros and cons of each item), please?

    Thanks!

    "Moses Basket" is the English term and "Bassinet" is the American English term. So basically its the same thing!!

    Hi Hi!

    i was thinking of getting a Moses basket for my baby due in Dec 07 as my current bedroom is too small to place a big cot.

    the advantage is baby can sleep with me while she is still so small.
    however, my impression is that baby will outgrow the Moses basket is about 2-3 mths?

    can anyone kindly advise on the advantages of Moses basket so i can make a better decision if i should get the basket?

    Thanks alot!!! :)

    Really depends how big your baby is at birth!! My daughters slept til 4 and half months but it was nearly too small by then. I know many people who's baby sleeps at least one month if not two.. Hope that helps!

    We only used it for 3-months. Loved that it had wheels and we could move it from room to room easily. See if you can borrow one or get a 2nd hand one.

    Moses Basket

    I just bought 2nd hand moses basket + stand (Mamas & Papas brand)
    from expat lady.

    It was almost brand new condition and it was absolutely great deal than buying brand new one since I was told from many other mums that I would used it only for few months (longest up to 6 months).

    So I recommend to buy it 2nd hand, too.
    I saw quite few ads selling them from HK$250 to HK$1,000 or so.
