When buying a crib for newborns, you need to understand that by the age of six months, the baby will begin to actively behave, get up inside, jump, crawl, thereby expanding the space for himself. Of course, he will try to get out of the crib, which is fraught with injury. Considering all this, it is important to carefully approach the choice in order to provide convenience, comfort and safety.

Our experts have compiled a rating in different categories, selecting only the best cribs for newborns. We present to your attention 16 models.

Tips for choosing a crib

  1. Safety. Inspect the baby bed before purchasing, paying attention to all the details. They must be properly processed. It is important that the side rails are made of wood, as the child will definitely try them out and chew. Better if it is an array, and not MDF, chipboard, chipboard.

  2. Base. Opt for the slatted lamella, as it is believed to provide better ventilation.

  3. Stability. The weight of the product in this case does not matter. Width and height are more important. Narrow and tall cribs for newborn babies are easier to tip over than low and wide ones.

  4. Lattices. If you are buying a product for a long time, then pay attention to the models where it is possible to remove the grilles. Then it will be easy to transform the crib for a newborn baby into a regular one, without having to go for a new purchase.

  5. Swing mechanism. There are several types: a transverse and longitudinal pendulum, as well as a simple swinging arm on runners. Here, each family should be based on personal preference. Experts insist only on smooth running. In this case, the mother will not have to make great efforts to swing, and the child will feel comfortable.

  6. Boxes. It is better if they are, because this gives additional storage space. They can be used to put away toys or extra bedding. When the baby grows up and begins to get out of the crib on its own, he will be able to get toys out of the boxes without going far away from her.

  7. Wheels. If the crib is equipped with them, then they must be well fixed, and also have a stopper to ensure stationarity.

  8. Mattress. Usually, cribs for newborn babies are not equipped with mattresses, so that parents have the opportunity to choose the one that is right for their child. In addition, its presence will affect the cost, which will increase many times over.

  9. Documentation. Purchase a crib in a specialized store, demanding from the consultant documents confirming the safety of the product and its compliance with all norms and requirements. Remember that any children's furniture is subject to mandatory certification. You can also ask for a test report if you wish.

  10. Budget. Even if you have a small amount, try to buy a model that is not the cheapest. A good product cannot be worth a penny by definition. It will surely be of poor quality, unreliable and unsafe. Do not spare money, because a crib for a newborn baby will serve you and him for many years in a row.
  11. Manufacturer. Choose brands that have already won consumer confidence. It will be useful to take the time to search for reviews and ratings. The models presented in our article were released by proven companies that have long been successful in the children's goods market.
