Funny Mum Posts Hilarious Facebook Ad for a Second Hand Baby Bassinet

Trying to sell off our unused or unwanted baby paraphernalia is always a bit of a pain. We want to recoup some of that cash we shelled out for those lovely, but mostly unnecessary must-have items in our pregnancy days, but are far too busy and likely sleep-deprived to bother taking pictures and writing something legible to garner any interest.

This mum has certainly nailed the art of honestly detailing her unwanted bassinet, hilariously describing it to be fantastic for the next gorgeous bub to “refuse to sleep in”.

Lucy Winter, from Gloucestershire in the UK, recently posted the ad for the lovely Moses basket to a Facebook group called Items for Sale in Kingswood and Staple Hill. It wasn’t long before it went viral for her hilariously honest description.

“Here we have a fantastic sleeping space for your baby to refuse to sleep in,” Lucy begins.

“With its convenient handles, once you have rocked the sh!t out of your gorgeous little bundle of joy and finally lay them to rest on the comfy mattress (also included) you can carry the bassinet around the house wherever you go because they will probably wake up in around 3 minutes anyway.

“This lovely Moses basket is almost brand new as you can see from its pristine condition, as my gorgeous angel was clearly too huge for a Moses basket from birth and instead needed a king-size bed to himself.

“I have thrown in some extra sheets for those midnight exploding nappies, that we all know and love.

“It comes with a 100% wood, woody stand thing, with plastic bits on to stop the basket falling off the woody stand thing when your child is practising their “look how fast I can flap my arms and legs” skills at 2am, 3am, 4am and then until it’s time to get up.

“It also comes with a cute little blanket which is completely pointless as it’s about the size of a small sock and covers nothing on a baby who doesn’t ever seem to stop moving, even whilst asleep. Could be used as a napkin.

“The basket has a little canopy, which you can put up to keep absolutely no sun out as it’s white and has small decorative holes in, but it does look lovely for when you have visitors and want to distract them from your puke stained clothes and the fact you haven’t washed your hair since you were pregnant!

“From a smoke-free home- although I’m thinking about starting.

“Also from a pet free home- the dog left, he had enough!

“Don’t miss this chance to grab a bargain. No offers! God speed!”

At just twenty pounds, this basket is an absolute steal! Thanks for the laughs, Lucy!
