When i purchased my claire de lune moses basket the sales assistant who sold me it was trying to get me to buy the stand with it. I point blank refused as i thought that she was just trying to take advantage of the fact that i was there to spend money!
Then when i took it to show my mum she loved it just as much as i did! Even when i told her how much i had spent on it she instead of giving me into bother for spendin so much money told me that it was worth every penny! Then she asked what kind of stand i got for it!
So i told her that the sales assistant had tried to get me to buy the stand but i refused as i thought she was trying to make me buy something i didnt really need! But my mum assured me that i would need one! So the next day i went back to the shop feeling like a bit of a fool and purchased the stand! Luckily the shop assistant from the previous day who had sold me the moses basket wasnt there! As if she had been i would have been extremely embarrased!!
So i took it home and put it away with my moses basket and everything else! And waited for the arrival of my little baby! I was so excited thinking about having my new baby that i forgot about all the pains of labour as i was planning on having an epidural so i wasnt expecting any pain!
But eventually when the labour did come it only lasted for 5 & a half hours and by the time i got to hospital there was no time for an epidural so i had no pain releif! (apart from gas and air) So afterwards i was really sore! My lower back was in agony with all the pushing and pretty much the rest of my body just ached for about 2 weeks afterwards.
When i got to the ward with my baby i quickly realised the importance of having a stand for my moses basket! As i tried to bath my daughter with the bed at its normal height and i couldnt do it as when i was bending over it really hurt! So the midwife came and showed me how to adjust the height of the bed! If it wasnt for that adjustable bed i dont know how i would have coped!!
So when we got home the next day i was dying to get all my things out and set them up for her! The first thing that we got out was her moses basket so we could have somewhere to lay her down while we got everything sorted out! The stand was amazing! Without it i wouldnt have been able to pick her up as bending down after giving birth is really painful!
~~~~~~Details of the stand~~~~~~~~
It has a solid wooden frame which folds out and a plastic support ring hooks over it and goes all the way round to keep the moses basket nice and secure.
You need to be careful when buying a stand for your moses basket as one size does not fit all! There are many different sizes of moses baskets out there so there are many different sizes of stands!! So unless you purchase the 2 things together i would highly recommened that before you go out to get a stand make sure and write down the dimensions for your moses basket so that you are sure to get the correct one for you. I have also written a reveiw on the moses basket its self so have a look and you will see the dimensions for the basket there.
I would definately say that a stand for your moses basket is a must have item as it prevents you from straining your back and makes it easier for you to tend to your baby without being in pain from bending over. Also another reason for having a stand is that if your baby is on the floor in the moses basket it could be quite cold.
I would definately recomend this product to you all.
Thanks for reading my reveiw and i hope that it has been useful for you!.
Take a stand! Raise your Moses basket to a higher level, and choose from fixed or gently rocking stands.
