Cribs

The Best Baby Cribs

Newborns. Ah, newborn babies. So sweet, brand new, and sleepy, like all of the time! Since they spend a lot of their time catching zzz’s (except at night, then they throw parties), their bed absolutely must be the safest place for them. Before you start to look for the perfect crib, let’s go over some quick crib safety tips:

  • Don’t use cribs that are older than 10 years
  • Absolutely no drop-side cribs
  • Bars should be spaced no more than 2 3/8 inches apart
  • Top of the crib rail should be at least 26 inches from the top of the mattress
  • Mattress and crib must have a snug fit (no space between mattress and crib rails/wall)

Okay, now let’s jump right into some of the best baby cribs:

Based on real reviews, here are some of the said pros and cons

Pros: Bright Colors, Sturdy, Easy to Move Around

Cons: Paint Chips Easily, Shorter Than Average Crib

Personal Review: From personal experience it looks beautiful and is a nice size. I like that all four sides are the same height because it gives it a more modern feel and looks clean. The Union comes in some funky colors (in a good way) as well as the classic colors. It was very easy for my husband to assemble and for it to be a lightweight crib, it is very sturdy. We have not had a problem with the paint outside of Zander using the rail as a teething toy. He did chip the paint because of that, good thing the paint is non-toxic! We have not had a problem with the design of the rails and the boy is a wild sleeper. His leg does escape through the rails at times but they have never gotten caught or stuck. He has always been able to bring it back in while still sleeping so I would say that the rail width is not a concern. It is super affordable and is perfect for moms that like bang for their buck! We purchased through Amazon and the shipping was extremely fast and it was not damaged upon arrival. If I could do it all over again I would purchase this crib again.
