Just wandering if anyone uses/recommends Moses baskets, or are they a waste of money?
We are looking at a good second hand one as the new ones seem far too expensive for the period of time we'll be using it. Can imagine they would be horrible to carry once baby gets heavier.
As we've chosen not to have a capsule, (instead car seat that is convertible to be used from birth up to 4 yrs/18kg), and have a large-ish pram (BJ City Elite), I'm worried about having a compace place for bub to sleep should we go out to dinner/to a friend's etc. I was thinking a basket would be nice for the first few months for this purpose – just a mini bed I can sit beside me on the floor at a restaurant etc, without taking up as much space as a pram.
On one hand I feel like I'm being excessive and won't use it enough to justify the expense, on the other hand I would hate to feel like we can't go anywhere or do anything because the pram is too big/too much hassle. Friends of ours just sit their little one in a capsule and take them everywhere...
