A Moses basket provides a safe, cosy cocoon for your newborn to 5-month-old baby. You can place the basket on a stand for easier access and less strain on your back; the stand's height depends on the type you purchase.


A Moses basket stand's height measurement spans from the floor to the top of the stand. Consider the height of the basket, which ranges from 8 to 12 inches, and an optional hood (if any) when calculating total height.


A rocking Moses basket stand, used to sway a slightly stirring baby to sleep, typically measures between 20.5 and 22 inches high. A stationary stand, similar to a traditional bassinet, ranges from 22 to 27 inches, while an adjustable folding stand -- which easily flattens for storage -- ranges in height from 20 to 27 inches.


Depending on the quality of the wood and craftsmanship, where it's made and if it comes with bedding, a Moses basket and stand can cost £26 to £227.


Parents should check the stand's hardware occasionally to see if it's secure, advises, and make sure the legs and wheels remain locked.
