INVESTING in new products for your little one can become pricey – especially when you know they are going to grow out of it soon.
But of course, all parents want for their children is the best.
Thankfully, parents on TikTok regularly share their tips and tricks to help make sure you don’t miss out on anything.
One mum, who goes by the name of tattfamily on TikTok, revealed how she saved £70 on making her out luxury baby changing mat – and it was completely free.
She did this by transforming a Moses basket into a wicker style changing mat for her little one.
She captioned the video: “I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this baby changing mat hack!

“I nearly paid £70 for one online.
“So the first step is, take off the handles, these are quite easy to unpick. I did actually cut with a pair of scissors on the top.
“Make sure you only do a small cut because you do need to use that strip for later.
“Once your handles are off just pop them to the side, and then count up five (strips) . I ended up going up one more (time) because I wanted it to be nice and deep.”
She then got a pair of scissors and cut around the top to shorten the height, before picking all the loose bits off on the top.
She continues: “It is quite a messy one, so just make sure you have a little bin pile ready.”
The mum then re-added the handles.
She says: “This step was probably the longest step, I think it took me about an hour. Just make sure you line them up properly before you commit.
“If you do it properly the first time, it probably won't take you an hour but it is so worth it because look at it.”
The Moses basket was completely free off Facebook marketplace.
She adds: “So I didn’t even spend a penny.”
Many other people rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts.
One wrote: “I’ve bought a Moses basket for £10 off marketplace as have seen this done & can’t wait! Looks lovely, well done!”
