A Cool Selection of the Best Iron Baby Cribs. Find Out Who Makes Them, Where to Buy Them and Everything Else You Need to Know...

Iron cribs are the way to go if your desire is to create a little drama in your baby nursery.

To be honest, the idea of my soft cuddly baby, in a hard metal crib, was initially somewhat disagreeable to me. However, I must admit, the more iron cribs I research, and the more pictures I look at, the more I am warming up to them!

Iron cribs are poignantly reminiscent of a by-gone era, of charming tales of dashing knights and swooning maidens falling at their feet. So get ready to be swept off your feet, back to the days of King Arthur, with visions of canopied cribs and dramatic drapes...

Check out the iron crib section at ababy.com for the widest selection.

Advantages of Iron Baby Cribs

Most iron cribs come with all the convenience features of standard baby cribs for mom, plus a touch of the unexpected.


Iron Baby Cribs - Convenience for Mom

  • Drop-down rails on one side of the crib - Allowing easy access, you can even change or dress your baby in the crib.
  • An adjustable mattress support - Allowing you to lower the bed as your baby grows (and grows!)
  • Rolling casters - Allowing you to move your sleeping baby to a convenient place for you to watch him or her. This can be an enormous stress reliever for a new mom. Check for locks on at least two of the casters to prevent unwanted rolling.


Health Highlights of Iron Baby Cribs

  • With the exception of the round ones, iron cribs are sized for standard mattresses and bedding. Therefore, there is the option of using organic crib mattresses and bedding. Organic crib mattresses have been associated with SIDS prevention.

The Disadvantages of Iron Baby Cribs

Alas, these dramatic recollections of the past do have a few shortcomings:

  • Price

    They are very expensive. Starting at around $1000, you can end up paying well over three if you get carried away. This is hardly surprising when you consider the personal care and attention to detail required for each custom-made masterpiece of handcrafted beauty.

  • Custom-made

    Each metal crib is custom made to order. This results in a lead delivery-time of between eight and sixteen weeks. Also bear in mind that custom-made cribs are usually non-refundable.

  • Availability

    Iron cribs are not as readily available as standard baby cribs. You may not find a large selection at your local outlet store. However, if you know where to look, you can find a good variety online.
