    This may sound like a really stupid question, but I have to ask it.
    I have a cotbed for LO and we are using a growbag instead of full bedding. Since then, we have been given a moses basket, so LO will spend the first few weeks in this.
    Can I use the growbag in the moses basket, or do I need to get some moses basket bedding? The Growbag looks so huge compared to the moses basket!!!

    I would personally get some bedding.You only will need a couple of sheets and a blanket.Baby will soon out grow the basket.The grow bag may swamp a newborn like you say it lokks huge in basket and you dont want it scrunched up round baby xx

    I only used the moses basket/small crib downstairs for baby to nap in during the day and covered with a little blanket. I always put them in the swinging crib/cot upstairs rather than lugging the carrycot/moses basket up and down every morning and evening:dohh:


    I love sleeping bags and swear by them as all mine have used them and all slept soooooooooooooo well at night, I'm convinced it's coz they were always snug and comfy but I do think it may be quite big in a moses basket I guess:blush:

    I have two little sheets and two small cellular blankets for the moses basket. They are 'pram' size so will do for that too if I need them. My friend said its worth getting them as some newborns like to be swaddled to sleep and a growbag won't do that.

    i agree, we have been given a set of two little sheets for the moses basket and have loads of blankies already, the growbags do look like a good idea but newborns do like to be swaddled so ur better off just until he/she is a bit settled and save the growbags for when the baby is moved into the cot
