What’s the benefit of the Moses basket? Well, besides the fact that it’s snug and able to be rocked, it’s also easy to transport from room to room. No matter where a parent goes in their home, they can carry the basket with them and keep the baby comfy. Plus, it’s convenient to bring along for travel, instead of buying or renting one on the trip. The baby eventually graduates to a crib, or as the Brits call it, a cot.
