As we are aware the sleepyhead does fit in the Shnuggle baskets, however we do not recommend it is used in conjunction with our baskets, due to the recommendations given by the lullaby trust on safe sleeping
10. If the ventilation holes are at the bottom, is it safe for the Moses basket to be used without the stands. i.e on the floor, as this will then cover the holes?

15. Is the base nice and supportive? My little boy had a wicker one and did not get on well with it due to sagging.
The Shnuggle Moses Basket is designed for stability. The base is solid on the sides with air holes for ventilation on the bottom. Creating a safe, secure environment for baby.

If you wish to use the classic basket with the curve stand the hood will need to be detached to use the stand in the low-level rocking position.

74cm in length and 28cm in width

24. Are there sheets available that fit the mattress?
Yes we sell waterproof moses sheets and grey fitted sheets that fit our mattress perfectly
25. I have misplaced the hood, can this be purchased separately?
We do not sell the hood separately as this comes as a part of the classic dressing set which is sold separately here:
A hood fittings pack will also need to be purchased to be able to attach the hood if you have misplaced the fixings
26. I want to re-use the basket for a second child, do I need to buy a new mattress?
We follow the advice given by Lullaby Trust that states:
“It can be common to use a second-hand mattress either from friends and family, or from your previous children. There is some research that found an increased chance of SIDS when using a second-hand mattress brought in from outside of the family home, although the link is not yet proven.
To help reduce this risk, if you are using a second-hand mattress make sure the mattress you choose was previously completely protected by a waterproof cover, with no rips or tears and is in good condition. The mattress should also still be firm and flat to keep your baby sleeping safely.”
