baby type basket Answered

I am looking for directions for a baby basket like a moses basket but without the basket. it is self contained and I have only scene one the sides are foam and the bottom a piece of plastic or wood I think. It has a hood like a bassinet for the head. The lady said she bought it at a craft shop somewhere. The instructions for use say it can be used for putting the baby in your bed to keep from rolling over on it or while on a trip at the hotel etc. It is adorable!! I would like to make one but have hunted everywhere for a pattern. PLeeeeeeease help Cindy

Both our boys shared our bed at some point or other when babies. Neither had any special equipment, they just lay between us. When we had to leave them asleep on the bed, a pillow either side was plenty to stop them rolling off. There is very little chance of sleeping parents rolling onto sleeping babies, unless the adult is either drunk, drugged or obese.

I no that is what I used to do also however now they are teaching parents not to do that.... I worked for the ambulance service and we had 4 incidents in the past years where parents rolled on the baby and the baby died. These were adorable and I thought would make great gifts filled with baby supplies....

there are and allways will be stories like that. everything can happen in this world

i think it should not scare you. avoid obvious dangers but dont overkill

as for me - i am now what i am mainly cause of my lots of incidents as kid - from falling from a tree and handrail to electric shocks i got from messing up with high voltage stuff. i also made a lot against how my parents try to raise me. i think i am way better the way i am than what i could be as a less active kid

among the sleeping capabilities i got are = being able to sleep on the floor and hard surfaces / ability to sleep on high places (like the computer desk) without falling from there and without kicking the computer to the floor / low sensitivity to light. i see them as advantages. i'd not get them by sleeping in a soft bed like any kid

i think that making everything to soft and over-safe is bad. the fall - cry - learn - stand cycle is an essential part of the way kids should discover the world. precaution should be taken to avoid real injury but not to avoid any minor scratch

I certainly understand that and being 60 years old ... I learned a lot that way also. There is something to be said for experience.... But if nothing else they can use it for a gift. and let the recipient decide whether to use it or not. Isn't it funny how things have changed? For instance the car seat I used for my children , hung over the front seat and now it takes 30 minutes to get the seats "locked" in. Being in the medic business I can see good results from there new car seats, but makes me wonder how my little ones survived. More often than not they stood behind my shoulder while drove. Cindy

i did not understand what the issue is (btw i dont think its a good idea to limit a baby to such small space when there is option not to)

this would be for a short time or when there was no other place to put it . Maybe when you are traveling and need a sleeping space. It is also for a baby no bigger than 15 lbs the tag said on the one I saw....
