To be honest it doesn't matter whether it's or organic or not. It's your personal preference. We had a moses basket for my son, but it was a moot point as he preferred to sleep on my chest for the first few weeks of life, and then next to me in the bed until he was 3 months. By that time he was in a cot. We ended up freecycling our moses basket as our son screamed everytime he was put in it.
