The Best Cribs for Your Baby

Last update: 21 May, 2019

There is a huge variety of baby cribs on the market. You can really go crazy trying to find the best one, especially if you’re a first-time mom. We have some different crib ideas to show you that’ll help you make the best decision. We’re sure that after reading our post, you’ll have a better idea of what kind of crib can work best for your baby as well as for your preferences and home.

Babies spend most of the day sleeping — during their first months, they can even spend up to 16 hours a day sleeping. Consequently, choosing a good crib is fundamental for your baby’s growth and comfort. Analyze all of your options carefully before making a purchase because your baby will spend a lot of time in the crib that you choose.

The classic baby crib

Classic cribs never go out of style and always a lovely option. They’re normally made of wood, which means that they last a lifetime. However, the main disadvantage of classic models is that they don’t offer any other functions, like the other cribs that we’re going to show you below. Additionally, moving them around is no easy task.

If you’re planning on having several children, you can use this crib and over again because it’ll last over time. If you have a place to store it for future use, we highly recommend using a conventional crib.

Folding cribs

Folding cribs are ideal for moving around as well as for homes that are short on space. You can move them easily from one part of your home to another thanks to their wheels. Additionally, they fold up for easy transportation.

Their main disadvantage usually is the quality, especially the mattress. You should choose carefully so that your baby can sleep comfortably and also so that the crib will last for a long time.

Travel cribs

If you travel a lot travel cribs are your best option. Their set-up and dismantling are easy and everything fits in a bag. Traveling with young ones won’t be a problem at all with this crib.

However, these kinds of cribs generally aren’t recommendable for everyday use because other models can offer higher quality and comfort for your little ones.

A conventional crib along with a folding crib for trips would make a perfect set. This is actually pretty plausible because folding cribs are relatively inexpensive.

Convertible cribs

You can only use baby cribs for a limited period of time. As your baby grows, they become useless and you’ll eventually need to buy a new bed.

If you don’t want to have to change your furniture later on, we recommend purchasing a convertible crib. You can set these up in different ways, following your baby’s growth.

Convertible cribs can have anywhere from two to five different kinds of set-upsAside from converting into a crib or bed, it can also change into a dressing table or sofa.

Not surprisingly, these cribs are more expensive than other models but if you take advantage of all the possible set-ups, they’re worth it. You can’t change normal cribs, on the other hand, to adapt to a different room or decor.

Co-sleeping bedside cribs

If you feel like you need to sleep with your little one nearby, co-sleeping cribs are your best solution. You can set up these cribs right next to your bedthe crib actually becomes a sort of bed extension. At night, parents will always have their baby at arm’s reach.
