We love our moses basket! We've been co-sleeping with dd since the night she was born, but the basket came in very handy during the first few months for naps, etc. I bought a simple basket and stand from http://www.mosesbaskets.com
- It's the same basket I've seen for way more $$$ in fancier places, and the stand is great. Since we didn't have a co-sleeper or crib next to our bed, we used the moses basket & stand for dd on the few nights when I had to take pain meds for some nasty mastitis. I really think the stand is the key to my love for our basket. It was very easy to move around the house while dd was napping, and kept her away from the cold floor & asst pet hairs.
Our dd was large (9.5 lbs & almost 22" at birth), but she fit into the basket longer than she fit into her infant carseat - around 4 1/2 months, I think. Now we're using it to store her stuffed animals, and it's in great shape for baby #2, whenever that happens...
We could have lived without it, sure, but it did make those first few months easier, and for much less $ than a co-sleeper or crib!
edited to add: I just checked out the site again, and it looks like they've changed their stand. It's now a rocking stand, but still looks useful.
