The Shnuggle Moses basket is the best cot for newborn babies

The Shnuggle basket has won the Best Cot Design category in this year’s Junior Design Awards

The Junior Design Awards recognise excellence in design, style and functionality. The Shnuggle basket’s innovative design and range of safety features were noted by the judging panel of industry experts and celebrity parents including Rachel Stevens.

Shnuggle co-founders, Adam and Sinéad Murphy, said: 'To win the Best Cot category is a fantastic way to finish off an amazing year for Shnuggle. As parents ourselves, we know that the Junior Design badge is an indication of quality, style and innovation. We’re thrilled that the Shnuggle basket has been officially recognised by Junior Design as a product that makes sleep time safer and cosier for newborn babies. The Shnuggle team are working on several exciting new products to be released at the start of 2015.'

The Shnuggle Moses basket has been designed to ensure that baby gets the best sleep possible without being disturbed by the creaking that is a common feature of traditional wicker baskets. The material allows it to be rocked silently without the rustling and loss of shape that is common to other Moses baskets. A clever locking mechanism ensures the hood stays up.

The hypoallergenic shell can be fully cleaned using warm soapy water, while the soft cotton dressings are machine washable so parents can be confident that the baby is in a clean safe environment. Those with a history of allergies in the family have reported that having a newborn in such a hygienic space has benefits. The base of the basket has been specially ventilated to ensure a constant airflow.

The basket’s rigid material ensures that the shape is maintained. This makes it a safer sleeping place for babies, especially if there are already inquisitive pets or young children in the home. As it is 10 per cent longer than standard Moses baskets, babies can stay in the Shnuggle basket for longer before they outgrow it and have to move into the cot.

The Shnuggle basket is available in a range of vintage pastel shades, reflecting the desire of modern parents for beautiful baby furniture that complements the family home.
