    so i know its a bit early but i wanted to try out my moses basket just to make sure it was all ok and i couldnt get the hood to stay up! it has those bolt things on the side that u tie the hood too, i dont know if they all have that but anyway, i tightened them up as best as i can but i cant get the hood to stay up, it just keeps slipping backwards, help? i dont want to have to buy a new one as this one is gorgeous but is second hand so i dont know if its broken or im just not doing it right

    thanks x

    mine was the same but i managed to master it slightly, uve prob already done this but when you tighten the bolts hold a screwdriver or something on the other side so the bolt cant twist whilst ur turning at as mine felt like they done up to there tightest but when i tried this it actually made the hood stay up.

    I have to tighten mine every time I use it. We have cat net on it and I think that helps keep it up a bit
