Round Baby Cribs Beds Bassinet
The Shape of Things To Come
It's happened again. The rules for raising babies has changed - leaving grandparents to wonder how our children ever survived. My mom now has a 1 year old granddaughter (my niece) but she admits to the more than occasional hint for more (not that I'm pressured).
We have only recently become aware of the trend toward round baby cribs, beds and bassinets. Mom wondered what happened to the squared off baby furniture I was raised in?

Some things haven't changed of course. You're number one priority when shopping for that new nursery is safety. Crib safety standards mandates that the sides of cribs should be fixed or have a drop gate that folds down. If you buy a crib with wheels be sure they are sturdy. If wheels are not included they can always be added later if needed. The mattress should be higher when the baby is smaller so he or she can be gently laid down for a nap. You will want to move the mattress lower as your baby learns to pull up. Two height adjustments is advisable and more is preferable.
Amazon carries several lines of lovely round baby cribs, beds and bassinets.
Round Baby Cribs
This popular crib features an oval shape and the ability to take your child from birth to about age ten. Through the use of conversion kits what starts out as a mini-bassinet can become crib. The crib can then become a toddler's bed and then a junior bed (conversion kit sold separately). The Stokke SleepI Crib offers three levels of mattress adjustment.
This product ships only in the United States.
Although a bit upscale and expensive, many parents are pleased with their Stokke Sleepi cribs, as it grows with their child. Plus, it looks elegant too! The only downside is that it is difficult to find beddings for it, apart from the ones that Stokke have which can be expensive.
It grows with your baby!
The Sleepi Crib also has matching changing table which can be bought separately should you wish to.
Employing the same principle as the convertible Sleepi crib, the changing table also grows along with your baby as it can be transitioned from a changing table into a play table and eventually into a desk.
**Designed to grow with the child as it converts to a play table, a student desk, a book/media shelf
**Height adjustable (38.6" or 34.7") to suit any parent
**Made of cultivated beechwood, providing a strong and durable product
**Includes a mattress, 2 large storage baskets, 2 side plastic containers and rails to maximize storage space
