One of the most exciting things expecting parents while preparing for their baby is picking out the things the baby will need, especially new parents. A baby crib is a place where babies peacefully sleep, dream sweet dreams and play especially when they are alone; cribs become the centrepiece of a nursery.
The major thing to consider when choosing a crib is safety; after that, you can decide based on style, colour, brand and budget. There are several cool crib designs that can fit easily in modern homes, allowing parents to creatively decorate their child’s sleeping space.
These are 7 Suitable crib designs for your baby
1. Convertible cribs
Just like the name implies, this type of crib can be converted into one or two different kinds of beds that can be used for children for many years; they can be transformed from a crib to a toddler’s bed, day bed and possibly a full sized bed. An adult will need to assemble it whenever it needs to be converted but it is fairly easy. Convertible cribs provide a comfy, restful spot for kids for a long time but they might have a high cost; you have to decide if you will spend money on a crib that will last various stages of your child’s growth or spend money getting different beds as the child grows.
2. Standard crib
The most common type of crib used in our locality is the standard crib; their basic function is to provide a restful environment for the baby. They do not have very unique designs or have nice features like drawers that might make them useful for more than one function and are not usually foldable but they are traditional and very reliable. If what you are looking for is just a comfortable place to put your child to sleep or play that is beautiful and solid, a standard crib will be perfect for your baby.
