Are moses baskets all the same size and shape?

I need to buy a new mattress for our moses basket for DS2. But do I need to buy a Mamas and Papas mattress because it's a M&P moses basket, or will any brand do? TIA

there are different sizes - measure your m&p one and check it against the sizes offered in mothercare. I know because I bought the wrong size for a borrowed basket & had to change it.

I'd be keen to know about any stores which do slightly larger ones. The ones in Babys R Us seem to be tiny and John Lewis had some larger ones on display but not much in stock.

most moses baskets take either a 66cm long or 75cm long mattress and the vast majority are 28cm wide, but double check.

Ooh forgot to come back to this, thanks all. Will dig it out and measure!

I had the same problem - assumed they were all the same size, bought one from Mothercare and ended up having to take it back and get a M&P one!
