Pros: portable, attractive, lightweight
To be honest, I didn't have THIS Moses basket, so this review is more for Moses baskets in general. While I wanted my babies to sleep in the same room as us, we didn't have room for a co-sleeper, and my husband didn't like sharing the bed all night. So, when my sil offered us her old one, it was a wonderful solution. I could place it right next to the bed and have easy access to my baby. I could also carry it downstairs and let the baby nap nearby. I didn't have problems washing the liner or mattress pad - that may depend on the exact model. I would highly recommend this!
