Choosing a Crib for the Nursery

Jun 11, 2008
The most important piece of furniture you can buy for your nursery is the crib. The crib should be the main focal point of your nursery and you should not pay more on any other piece of furniture than you do on your crib. Before you actually pay for a crib, it is important to think about the type of look you're going for in the room so it all ties together.

If you're into a more antique look, a Jenny Lind crib would be the perfect match for your nursery. Known as the Swedish Nightingale, Jenny Lind was a famous opera singer who traveled with the Barnum and Bailey's circus. The crib style was named after her because she was known for only sleeping in beds with turned legs. Jenny Lind cribs are recognized for being modern but still having an old world touch.

Although Jenny Lind cribs can be very beautiful, you may be interested in buying a more convenient and functional crib for your baby. A three-in-one crib allows the crib to change size as a child grows, saving time and money in the future. Changing from a crib to a bed, the piece can adjust as your child gets older.

Some parents have discovered cribs that help them to handle cranky baby situations by offering a remote that controls features like lights, sounds and motions. Helping to distract your baby, you can use the remote to select these features and help entertain or put your baby to sleep. One button might turn on a mobile, another may play music and a third could even trigger crib vibrations and rock your child to sleep. These cribs also come in handy for early morning disturbances.

The most important thing to think about when choosing a crib is the safety of the model. Before buying a new crib, check out the consumer reports to research the history of the crib and if you're purchasing a used crib, test everything yourself, making sure that it is strong, sturdy and suitable for your child.
