Great crib

I have had my son sleeping in this crib for over 3 months and am very happy with it. I put it together by myself in about an hour and a half. I took my time and moved a little slower knowing it was made of soft wood. There were a few steps that would have been easier to complete with two people. The wood is a little soft and I did make one ding in the wood on the inside, but this would have been avoided had I waited for my husband to get home to help. Very sturdy once assembled.

I don’t think you can find better quality for the money if you’re looking for a modern crib. Love this crib. Our daughter’s nursery is mid-century modern-ish and this works perfectly in it.

Great crib, but NOT great toddler bed!

This is a great crib — streamline, compact, sturdy, strong, etc. We had it as a crib for almost two years and had no problems whatsoever with it.However, when we transferred it to a toddler bed, we found that the side rail doesn’t fit in flush. See the pictures and you’ll know what I’m talking about. There is a big gap and shows the mattress under the rail. Furthermore, it shows screw holes that are no longer in use. We were extremely disappointed because it looks like a piece of junk now.I would recommend this bed for anyone wanting just a crib. Skip it if your plan is to convert it to the toddler bed with rail. Or even without the rail as you’ll still see all the screw holes on the bottom and the mattress will slide.

Great looking!

I ordered this through Amazon and it came within 2 days. My husband and I spent about an hour putting it together. The instructions were ok, could be better but we figured everything out. We had enough hardware and there were no damaged pieces. Whew! Everything looks really good and sturdy but I haven’t officially used it since the baby is not here. However, the assembly was good and the wood wasn’t as cheap as I read in other reviews. I’m happy with it so far and love the color, finish and look. I ordered the Willow Natural Coconut Palm Crib Mattress to go with this crib and it fits perfectly! One of the reasons i picked this crib was because it is geared towards shorter women like myself and the price point was good for me. I’m still debating on the dresser as I heard really bad reviews.

Really beautiful crib

Really beautiful, modern design. I was worried it did not work together with my mattress (nook pure) but it fits nicely. As other reviews pointed out, the paint chips easily. I attached a mobile to one side of the crib and it got damaged, but I would not complain about quality either. Happy with it. Would recommend.

Great crib

We received this crib several days ago and it was a cinch to put together. It looks great and half the price of the oeuf baby cribs.

Great crib for the money

I did extensive research into a modern-looking and sturdy crib that won’t cost me an arm and a leg. This Babyletto Modo 3 in 1 crib fits the bill. Setup was easy and the whole thing definitely feels solid. Much better than some of those flimsy looking entry lines – including the $200 Ikea cribs.I did also consider the Babyletto Mercer 3 in 1, but ultimately went with the Modo because there is enough clearance under the Modo 3 in 1 for my Roomba to move in and out. With the Mercer, just be aware that the bottom of the drawer almost touches the ground, so you won’t be able to either vacuum or sweep the area underneath the crib – and that area ends up becoming a dust landfill.

Sturdy and easy to put together.

My wife and I are having twins and we recently purchased two of these cribs. We put both together last night and I have to say it was very easy to assemble and seems to be very sturdy. Probably took us 45 minutes to put each one together at the most. The materials seem to be very good quality and the crib actually looks better than cribs that are much more expensive. One thing to note is that both cribs we received already meet the new CPSC standard for full size cribs even though that standard doesn’t go into effect until June 28, 2011. Babyletto (MDB “Million Dollar Baby is the parent company) were great about responding to my email and confirming that the cribs we had conform to this new standard. Overall we are extremely happy with this crib.Update: We have now had our twins for just over two weeks and the cribs seem to be very comfortable for them. They actually sleep better in the cribs than most other places, i.e. bouncy chairs, etc. The cribs are solidly built and have worked great with no loose parts or creaks/rattles. Overall still very satisfied.

Beautiful Crib

This crib is beautiful, and I love it. It wasn’t too difficult to put together and it looks great in our nursery. Amazon really does have it for the best price (I looked everywhere), plus free shipping on such a large item was wonderful. It came undamaged and well packed.

Great crib

I’ve used this crib for my daughter who is now 7 months and we’ve had no issues with it what so ever. That being said she’s not standing up in it yet so I’m yet to lower the mattress yet. I like the style of the crib and it fit our criteria cause we were looking for a crib that didn’t convert into a twin bed cause we didn’t care for the look of the head and foot board when used as a crib. Plus you can ‘float’ this crib in the center of the room which looks great.

Very pleased.

We received this crib quickly and the packaging was intact. No dents, bumps, scratches in the crib pieces when we opened the box and everything was packed neatly and efficiently. I was 5 months pregnant when the box came and I assembled the crib mostly by myself in less than an hour. Needed my husband to help me hold a few things in place, but only because I’m somewhat clumsy! Assembly was very easy and I love that the fasteners are placed discreetly so you don’t see a bunch of shinly metal screws all over.We love the simple, more modern design of the crib and the finish is beautiful. Very pleased with the aesthetics. I did bump into it with the vacuum (I said I was clumsy!) the other day and leave a little ding, but I figure it’s furniture for a kids room and it’s going to get a little beat up. I had read reviews that the wood was a little soft and dings easily so I was not surprised to see that my vacuum bump left a mark, but I guess I just expect that any baby/kid furniture is going to get beat up over time so that was really not a huge issue to me.As I write this I am 6 months pregnant, so we have no little one using the crib yet and I cannot review based on usage. But based on packaging, shipping, assembly, and appearance we are very pleased!

Awesome crib, en trend, great price!

I bought this crib for my 2nd baby, who is on the way. The first time around, I spent WAY too much money on my DS’s nursery furniture, buying all the conversion rails (from crib to toddler bed to a full-sized bed), etc. At the time, it seemed so wise, but honestly, I don’t think I want to keep the crib until my son is fully grown and ready for a full-sized bed. But since we spent so much $ on it, I feel like I have to keep it longer than I would otherwise have wanted. With the Babyletto Modo, the price is great. It is very en trend with the espresso and white combination, and I don’t feel like I have to keep it for more than a few years. It is just as sturdy as my son’s pricey crib, and seems like it will be durable enough to handle our next child, at least through the toddler bed stage. I also like that it is low enough for me to be able to put a sleeping child into it even when we eventually will have to lower the mattress.

Great basic crib

I love this crib. It’s made with solid wood (no toxic particle board) and has a lower profile, which makes it a bit easier to put the baby in when its set to the lowest setting. It’s a no frills crib, which is what we wanted, so it takes up less real estate in my son’s nursery. The wood is quite soft, and we have accidentally dinged the edges with the vacuum, which I am really bummed about. It set up very easily and is also pretty light, so you can move it around if necessary. Fits standard crib mattresses.

Great Crib!

I love this crib! When I was looking for a crib I wanted a white one and a more modern one. I looked at many many cribs and most of my ideal cribs were way out of my price range. I kept coming back to this one, so finally took the plunge and made the purchase and am not disappointed!It came from Amazon in perfect condition. The step up was super easy. The directions were easy to read and follow. My husband put it together in no time at all. It is a bit lightweight, but I didn’t expect it to be heavy with the price we paid.This is our first baby so I don’t have any experience with other cribs but I am 5’1" and this crib is a great height. I don’t imagine having any problems with putting baby in/ getting baby out.

Love this crib

Purchased a second one for my second child. Great modern look and doesn’t take over the whole room. highly recommend

Modern looking crib for a fraction of the cost

This is one sleek looking crib that has a decent price tag for it’s design. It’s well made and pretty easy to assemble. You will find that once you convert it to the toddler bed, it looks even more attractive! It fits a regular sized crib mattress and has no moving parts (which can be tough for short moms who have to lower sleeping babies.If you’d like a complete crib buying guide, visit the website, and look under ‘baby gear essentials’. You’ll find great tips on where you can save money, a stroller shopping guide, and how to prepare for the hospital delivery.Good luck!
