Thanks to all of you who gave me great recommedations for where to buy a mattress for my DH's old moses basket. I now realise I need to get liner/ sides/ sheets etc. Any ideas wise ladies? All I have is the hard wicker frame and need to get it completely (safely) kitted out.

Pillowcases = sheets for Moses basket. I would guess a single sheet folded in half would line the basket effectively?

Ebay, NCT sales and Freecycle have provided us with most of our baby gear.

Thanks- but don't I need something to cover the sides and to pad it? Most seem to have padded liners and covers. The basket itself is wicker and has gaps in it, so I would have to cover those up, I think...

the best sheets are old pillowcases as you (or your mum) have loads in the airing cupboard already

I had a link to a liner, hang on

my moses basket liner wasn't padded, it was just a single layer like a cotton sheet, I thought it was better not too padded, for breathe-ability in case the baby puts it's face in to it? I dunno I may have just made that up...

I got fitted stretchy sheets, flat top sheets and cellular blankets from mothercare.

You can fashion one from a single fitted sheet if you are able to sew - just use the elasticated ends sewn together and measure it out.

lovely shop on ebay - I'll find it for you! I have ordered a new set for our moses basket since ours was very gender-biased and we don't know what we're having this time!
