Our Ghana Moses basket is recommended for use until your baby is 3-4 months, 20 lbs and/or when baby can roll over, push up or crawl. Stop using immediately when any of these limits are met.
Infants can suffocate in gaps between a mattress and the side of the Moses basket. Only use a firm mattress less than 3" tall that fits snugly with in the basket with no gaps. You should NEVER add a pillow, padding, bumper pads or comforter.
It is recommended by pediatricians that infants be placed on their backs positioned on a firm empty surface TO REDUCE THE RISK OF SIDS. Do not add any soft objects, toys or loose bedding to basket.
Do not place your Ghana Moses baskets on tables, counters or any other elevated surfaces. Do not place basket near stairs. While baby is in basket place the handles in an outward facing position.
While these Ghana moses baskets are very sturdy DO NOT move or carry the basket with your baby inside of it. Remove your baby first before moving basket to a new location. DO NOT attach toys or place toys with strings or cords in or around the basket to avoid strangulation or choking. DO NOT allow pets and/or other children to climb into the basket while your baby is inside. AVOID the use of plastic bags inside the basket. DO NOT leave infant unattended.
