    Where does everyone sleep ( or plan to sleep) their brand new babies?

    Straight to cot? Or is a bassinet better first off? We like the look of the Moses baskets..are they perfectly safe to use?

    Bassinet next to our bed... In theory. In reality I bed share with them most nights, they start off in the bassinet though. I have one of the boori mesh bassinets and they're bigger so my babes fit until 6-8 months.

    Toby didn't go into his own room until he moved into a big bed - haha. We are pretty cruisy about it all though, it doesn't work for others though.

    I think Moses baskets are safe to use but you won't get as long out of them as a bigger bassinet.

    We have bought a travel bassinet (folds flat - really flat) because it's versatile and practical for our lifestyle. It has also has mesh sides and an enclosed canopy which will be perfect for the season to keep bugs and mosquitoes away from the little one. We can also take out into our gazebo when we are outside (we spend a lot of time outside) so that will be handy! Other than that, it seems quite spacious and deep.

    We were going to get a Moses basket but then read things saying they weren't safe because they aren't secured to the stand etc. This bassinet will still be just as portable though so problem solved! Can't wait to pick all this stuff up next weekend!!

    That looks pretty handy! How much do they cost, roughly?

    We use this:

    Our little one still sleeps beside our bed in it (she's almost six months old now).
    We've found it great for traveling as it just packs down like a port-a-cot.

    We put it on lay-by in the end of financial year sale and so I think we got it for $120 but they are normally $150. You might be able to find it cheaper at another store. It's a lot cheaper than most so we got lucky in that regard! We were going to get a boori timber one to match bubs cot but we really need it to be portable and wanted something that had a way of keeping flies and mosquitoes away from bub. It's also going to be much easier to get up and down the stairs out the back at home! Couldn't carry a timber one down there haha.

    We also have family interstate so it will be most handy when visiting them and we also have a trip away with close friends when bub will be about 10 weeks so another bonus! It folds flat so can go under everything in the boot with no hassle

    Well, we just bought a Moses basket - cos it goes perfect with our new house 🙄 😀 lol

    Understand they can be knocked over etc, but prob only a risk if there was an older sibling etc in our case..

    Hahaha I think that's a good enough reason! We have a cat that would probably knock something like that over when she is running around like a lunatic and bouncing off things haha. I do like Moses baskets though!
