How to Choose the Best Baby Crib

RC Willey Blogger Profile Picture - Guest Posted by RC Willey Community on June 8, 2015

Preparing for the arrival of a baby is expensive and that’s why it’s smart for you to purchase items that multi-task. After all, your baby is going to grow up and his/her needs will be constantly changing. This crib converts to a toddler bed and later with optional bed rails, into a twin bed, saving you from buying new furniture as your child grows. For the toddler stage there is a removable side rail that will keep your little boy or girl in bed and not rolling onto the floor, and the low mattress makes it easy for him or her to climb into bed at night. The Bradford bed is classically designed and will last your child for years while staying in style. 

Once you know which bed you want to buy you have to decide on color. If you want this purchase to last a long time I would recommend getting a neutral color (one that goes with everything) so that you can use it for more than one child. Unless you have a fantastic crystal ball, you don’t know what your future children will be, but brown or white should work fine for a boy or girl. If you have a lot of dark wood in your house, you might want to get a similar finish and if you have white woodwork and want a “lighter” feeling, go with white.

Today, medical experts warn against bumper pads, pillows, and blankets in the crib for baby safety (SIDS). Grandparents may not be aware of this shift in nursery design and safety, as those things used to be part of accessorizing the nursery, however, you can still play with themes and color schemes with fitted bottom sheets and dust ruffles that coordinate with curtains or valances, wall hangings or art, paint color, lamps, etc. Be honest with family and friends on what you want your nursery to look like and prepare yourself for mountains of coordinating baby gifts!
