Great look but does not last until baby is 1 year
We live in Manhattan and needed a crib for our 1br apartment. We thought a mini crib would be a good idea. Little did we know that our baby girl, now 8 months would grow so quickly. She has very few inches left both on top of her head and below her feet. In addition, when she lies flat on her back with her arms out, she can reach both sides and she loves to play with them which means she never goes to bed in the crib…I can not complain about the quality of the crib except for the paint. We used to have a fisher price mobile that was screwed on to the side of the crib, the paint came off very easily.
I bought this for our second child to sleep in our room for his first 5 months. A little bit of history on why I bought this -Our first child slept in a handmade cradle for the first three months. He was a terrible sleeper. I partially attribute his poor sleeping to the lack of stability of the cradle, even with the rockers “locked,” and the thin cradle pad. He immediately slept better when we moved him to his full size crib in his own room. For our second baby, I considered buying the Arm’s Reach co-sleeper (with the additional purchase of a mini crib mattress) for our room. I was afraid it was a glorified Pack ‘N Play and not very sturdy like our cradle. I liked the wooden version of the Co-Sleeper, but it was above my budget. In the end, I bought this and am so happy I did.At first we placed the mini crib beside our king size bed. I had plenty of room to get out toward the end of the bed and didn’t find it hard to lift my baby out of the crib to nurse at night. I think the crib looks much more expensive than it really is. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to keep their baby in their room for the first 3-5 months and doesn’t have room to bring in their full size crib. This is definitely not a long-term substitute for a full size crib though. If you’re interested in only keeping your baby in your bed for the first month or so and have a king size bed, then this is probably not worth buying. I would suggest the Summer Infant By Your Side Sleeper if you’re looking for a shorter term solution.Now, my second child is 10 months old and although he doesn’t sleep in this mini crib, it is still set up in our room. We have moved the mattress to the lowest position, and it is a convenient, safe place for him to play while I get ready.It took my a while to read through reviews and search for what I eventually bought to use with it. In the end, I also purchased the following to use with it:1. the Tiny Love Take Along Mobile (I couldn’t get my standard mobile to fit on the crib)2. the Baby Mod 50 Coil Mini-Crib Mattress (I didn’t want to use the thin pad that came with it and ended up getting this from W-M)3. 2 American Baby Company Waterproof Fitted Quilted Porta-Crib Mattress Pad Covers (fit well on #2)4. Gerber Fitted Crib Sheets (yes, they are sold for standard cribs, but they fit quite well on #2)5. Sheet Suspenders Brand Sheet Minis (to make sure the sheet was pulled tight, just watch you don’t scrape the crib with them when you remove your mattress to change the sheets)
I love the size but the support piece the mattress sits on feels really flimsy. Our full size crib for our other kid had a metal platform. This one is made out of particle board. We’ll likely modify it ourselves with some plywood.
I love this mini crib. We bought two, one for our tiny home nursery and one for Nana’s house. It’s compact which is great if you are tight on space. My daughter is 6 months old and still has plenty of room. Could it be more solid- sure, but you’re only spending 140 some dollars here. Given the price point I think it’s good quality. It won’t last forever, but I figure it will last for this little one and a second. So for the price- I think its perfect. The only downside to mini cribs is finding bedding but there are several internet sites that sell mini crib bedding- you just have to search for awhile.**Update** My daughter is turning one in 1 week and still has ample room in this crib.
Easy to assemble and sturdy
The crib is really easy to put together, took me a little less than an hour with a drill. It’s sturdy and looks really good. We got this mini-crib because our son out grew his bassinet and we didn’t want to put him in his room quite yet. My boy loves the extra space allowed in the crib and is sleeping well. It is adjustable as far as height is concerned. You can lower the mattress if your kid starts to hang onto the hand rails and stand up. You don’t want them climbing over the top and taking a spill after all.It’s a good buy and probably best if used instead of a bassinet. You’ll get more use out of it that way.
Great for small rooms
We live in a late 1800’s constructed building with very small bedrooms and closets. This crib not only fits well but was fairly easy to assemble and looks nice. The wood does scratch easily though so plan to get teething guards soon. We are able to store some small items under the crib and were able to make a full size crib skirt work with minor tweaking. I appreciate that the top back railing is flat so we can set a pacifier or two there for emergency usage. We purchased the ultra firm mattress to go with this which fits well but isn’t ultra firm. We are hoping this will be big enough for first two years but too early to tell.
We love the size and quality. We think fits great in our room so she can be right next to us! We think it is sturdy too!
Tiny Crib with a Big Impact
My husband put this crib together tonight and for a small crib it makes a big impact! The bed is sturdy and easy to adjust to different heights. It looks like a much more expensive bed than it was and we are very happy with the quality. The only trouble were the instructions. They were a little vague but we were able to figure them out. That said, we are very happy with it 🙂
