Baby Crib Types and Styles

There are many different crib types to choose from. Which one is best for you will depend, among other things, on your personal taste, your budget, and the size of your nursery room.

Each one is available in various styles and finishes and from a number of different manufacturers.

Brands differ in terms of price, quality, safety standards and warranties, as well as distribution methods.

Higher prices are usually due to the quality of materials used and the extent to which the crib has been handmade.

The following articles give information about the most common and popular crib types on the market today...

  • The Standard Crib

    The most common and popular crib type; standard cribs come in a variety of styles and finishes to suit any baby nursery.

  • The Jenny Lind Crib

  • The Round Crib

    Round cribs are a good option if you are looking for something a little different. They give baby a 360 degree view of the world and they look stunning.

  • The Iron Crib

    Similar to the standard crib but made of metal rather than wood. These oh so elegant iron cribs come in the popular round shape too and are very popular with the celebrity moms.

Short Term Baby Cribs

Of all the baby beds your little one will sleep in over the next few years, his first small bed will probably be his favorite.

After nine months inside you small cribs are a home away from home for baby.

  • Baby Bassinets

    Baby bassinets are like baskets on a stand. They usually have a hood and are decorated in the most beautiful, frilly fabrics.

  • Baby Cradles

    Baby cradles are basically tiny cribs on a rocker. They are made of wood or iron making them heavier than baby bassinets and moses baskets, and therefore less portable. They are often passed on as heirlooms and are a wonderful traditional baby furniture item.

  • Baby Moses Baskets

    Baby moses baskets are exactly what they imply - a small woven basket usually lined with pretty fabric. Most have handles for carrying from place to place and some have the added benefit of a hood. Moses baskets are small enough to be placed in your baby crib to help in the transition from a small bed to the real thing - a big deal for your baby!

  • The Amby Bed

    The Amby bed is a hammock that hangs from a spring. It provides baby with the natural elements of closeness and motion experienced during the nine months of pregnancy.

  • Arms Reach Beautiful Dreamer Cocoon

    The Arms Reach Cocoon moves automatically in response to your baby's movement mimicking the motion of the womb and rocking your little one back to sleep.

  • The Bedside Crib

    The bedside crib is a cosleeper that attaches to the side of an adult bed. It allows your baby to remain close to you at night without actually being in your bed. Baby has the benefits of sleeping near you, without the risk of you rolling over on him or her.

Baby Crib Safety

This is your first priority. Babies spend 60-70% of their first year in their crib. It's up to you to make sure they sleep safely. It is essential to ensure that the crib furniture you decide on, meets the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standards for crib safety as an absolute minimum.

Crib Mattresses

Your baby crib will only be as good as the accessories that go with it, the most important of these being the crib mattress. Please do your homework in this area, as the use of unsafe crib mattresses, has been stated as one of the possible causes of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
