    I like using a Moses basket in the early weeks as it's easier to move around than a cot. From my bedroom to the living room etc.
    My kids have all been in their cots by about six weeks though so it's not necessarily worth forking out a lot of money for a brand new one.

    I have one for sale if you're interested :-)
    Includes basket, stand, mattress and about 5 fitted sheets for $250

    PM if you might be interested

    And a lot of babies seem more secure in the basket rather than being in a big cot. (my kids didn't seem to mind too much one way or the other)

    Certainly not necessary. But if your house is big or has multiple floors, it's handy to have so you can bring baby everywhere. Or if you have a dog like us, it's a good place to put the baby instead of just on blanket on the floor.
    Our baby is 10 weeks and still fit, but if you have a big baby it wont last very long

    I wasn't going to buy one because I had read others saying that it isn't worth the money as you only use it for a short period of time. But I was given a second hand one by a friend, and I am so glad we have it. I have used it every night for three months and probably will until my son grows out of it. If we have another child I'll buy another new one. I think it is well worth having.

    As the others have said, certainly not a necessity but very nice to have especially if your house is larger. We loved ours and brought it into the the living room for daytime naps and the bedroom for night time, I feel like it lasted us around three months but can't remember exactly.

    our kid sleeps in a moses basket right next to our bed. my wife swears on it as she barely has to get up during night to pick and feed him. it also helps me as i never wake up because my wife picks him up at the first sound, so he never really gets into the crying stage at all
