Easter {basket}

Joana Schomer

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

This year, being in Portugal, we took advantage of the traditional family time and lots of eating. We were grateful for this slow time, and for having family to celebrate with.
However, we didn't have the traditional egg hunt that we always had when living in the States. It's funny to see how that tradition has picked on in Portugal because if I'm not mistaken, I don't remember seeing it here. We might resume it next year, but this time around, we just had fun time with the girls, and they played lots outside with their relatives.

Not having a basket for the hunt, doesn't mean that we didn't photograph a basket! And of course, it had to be with a beautiful Moses one.

I would love to know how you celebrated this season. Drop a line and say hi!

Until next time,


Benefits Of A Moses Basket

Joana Schomer

Many of you may wonder, why spend that extra money on a Moses basket. Why use one if the baby will have a bigger crib? These or other questions might have you hesitant in acquiring one for your little baby, but from my point of view and experience, I could´t live without a Moses basket. And here´s why...

Where baby will sleep is always the biggest concern to parents, and you want to make it special, cosy and safe. Many parents prefer to keep their newborn in their bedroom, close to them. It makes it so much easier on those long, sleepless nights where baby needs to be attended to almost throughout the whole night. So unless you live in a master suite bedroom, you will be a little limited in space. So this is where that special bed for those first months comes in. There are many options in the market and usually a basket/bassinet with a stand (or not), close to the bed is the choice.
However, babies will be sleeping during the day too, and you will need a place for them to nap. This is where I find Moses basket the ideal solution for the first months, because I like to keep an eye on baby wherever I am in the house. Not to mention, I can take it anywhere else, if it so happens to be spending a weekend or day out.

They are a great starter bed for your baby. They provide a cosy little sanctuary for them and they are extremely portable. Grab the handle, and off you go (just make sure not to carry the basket with baby inside) and the size is perfect to fit in your bedroom. Wherever you are, baby is right by your side, sleeping, giving you that peace of mind and comfort to them. They are extremely lightweight making it easy to move around and you can rest it on any safe surface (floor, table...)
Using a stand or not is your personal choice. We don´t offer that option but there are several stores where you can buy one and they are very flexible with fitting to different baskets.

And if you are still hesitant, remember that you can continue using the basket for other purposes, once the baby has outgrown it. You can pass it down to siblings or use it as a toy/linen storage. Our African baskets with their unique texture, color and pattern, will look beautifully displayed in your home.

I would like to introduce you to my third child, my baby girl, that arrived on February 1st at the very first hours of the day.
She made her appearance spontaneously and we could´t be happier that she has joined us and her other sisters. Wow, we are a family of 5 now and it has been hectic! Still adjusting to this new routine.

So, on her 6th day of life, I celebrate this little peanut in the best way possible: in one of our Moses basket.
