‘A fantastic sleeping space for your baby not to sleep in’: Parents left hysterical over Mum’s VERY honest ad for £20 Moses basket that is ‘decorative enough to distract visitors from vomit-stained clothing’
- Lucy Winter, who lives in the UK, advertised on Facebook a Moses basket for £20
- Mom got over 500 likes for her funny description of the item
- Claimed her baby ‘refuses to sleep in the basket’ and was too big for it from birth
A mom who advertised her baby’s barely used Moses basket online with a hilarious diatribe about sleepless nights covered in baby-sick and exploding diapers has struck a chord with other exhausted parents.
Lucy Winter, from South Gloucestershire, took to the Facebook group Items for Sale in Kingswood and Staple Hill and nearby to list her son’s Moses basket for £20.
She shared a selection of photos showing the basket from different angles, while joking that it’s “almost brand new” due to the lack of time her baby has spent in it.
The honest post struck a chord with other parents who have struggled to put their babies to sleep in a Moses basket, or wherever.
Lucy Winter, who lives in the UK, has gone viral on Facebook after she wrote a funny description for her son’s Moses basket (pictured)
In her viral post, Lucy joked that her son was ‘too big’ for the Moses basket from birth and ‘needed a king size bed for himself’
Lucy urged parents to buy from her, saying: ‘Here we have a fantastic sleeping space for your baby to refuse to sleep in.
With its handy handles, once you’ve rocked the s*** out of your gorgeous little bundle of joy and finally placed them on the comfy mattress (also included), you can take the crib anywhere, because she’ll probably wake up in about three minutes.
“This lovely Moses basket is almost brand new as you can tell from its pristine condition, as my beautiful angel was clearly too big for a Moses basket from birth and needed a king size bed to herself instead.
“I’ve added some extra sheets for those exploding diapers in the middle of the night that we all know and love.
It comes with a 100 percent wood, woody standard thing, with plastic bits to keep the basket from falling off the woody standard thing when your child practices his ‘watch how fast I can clap my arms and legs’ at 2am, 3am , 4am and then until it’s time to get up.
It also comes with a cute blanket which is completely pointless as it’s about the size of a small sock and doesn’t cover anything for a baby who never seems to stop moving even when he’s sleeping. Can be used as a napkin.
Lucy said she is supplying extra sheets along with the Moses basket (pictured) to help with ‘midnight exploding diapers’
Lucy joked that the Moses basket comes from a smoke-free home, but she’s thinking about starting and the dog left after she’d had enough
The basket has a small canopy which you can hang up to block out absolutely no sun as it is white and has small decorative holes in it, but it looks lovely when you have visitors and want to distract them from your vomit-stained clothes and the fact that you haven’t washed your hair since you were pregnant!
‘From a smoke-free home – although I’m thinking of starting. Also from a pet free home – the dog left, he had enough! Don’t miss this opportunity to grab a bargain. No offers! God speed!’
Lucy’s post has been shared more than 500 times and hundreds of comments as parents gushed that her description of using a Moses basket with a newborn is “true.”
Alongside a series of smiling emojis, one person wrote: ‘Oh my love, my babies are long gone, but if you don’t get a buyer, I might have it for the smile you gave me’
Another said: ‘Brilliant ad and reality check! I hope you sell it’
“This is hilarious and so true,” added a third.
Another wrote: ‘So funny, it made me laugh. Forwarded to my pregnant daughter. I’m not sure if she’ll buy it, but she’ll definitely enjoy reading it as I did. Thanks for the smile and good luck with your little angel’
