When you’re shopping for your crib what are you hoping to get out of it? Do you plan on picking a crib that’s just for baby? Do you want something that will grow with your child? Maybe you’re looking to invest in something that’s going to stay with your child into their teens or maybe (just maybe) you want a crib that converts into something completely different so that you get a change things up a few years from now. Well, I can help you out with all of these options.
Here are my top 3 picks of cribs that will BLOW your mind:
This may honestly be the coolest crib that I’ve ever seen. Who would have thought you could ever convert your crib into a sofa. Like seriously!!! If you haven’t already seen this on display I encourage you to head to the Nestled showroom on Fairview Rd. in Burlington. This crib & sofa are showcased in the feature room at the front entrance. You really can’t miss it. You’ll see just how amazing this transformation can really be. Use it as a crib now and then maybe a sofa in three years? I just love the sleek boho vibe of this collection. The warm wood would look incredible in any space. Thinking about having a little sofa in a play area in a few years? This would be perfect. A few throw pillows and blankets and you can either dress it up or dress it right down for a little casual retreat in your home.
This stokke crib is definitely a trendsetter for 2018. It’s the boho chic look with some really amazing accessories. First of all, I love the canopy option. You can drape this over the baby’s crib or leave it open and airy. You’ll find this on the Nestled showroom floor if you’re looking for a closer look at the set. The cradle in this collection is SUPER COOL too! I’ve never seen a bassinet that does so many things. First of all, you can rock your baby to sleep with a soothing swaying motion. The movement looks like the perfect rhythm for baby. You can insert your bassinet directly into the crib if you don’t want to move baby from it’s sleep. It’s lightweight and extremely space efficient (also a major plus). Another cool accessory is the home changer for this collection. Ok Ok… yes you can change your baby anywhere but can you rest your change table on your crib? So convenient to change baby after a nap. You can also move the changer around to literally change the baby wherever you’d like. Practical and pretty. I really love the design of the entire collection. Would look great in any nursery.
Originally, this was the collection I was hoping to go with for our nursery until I realized how small my nursery was. The furniture is not crazy huge it was just a bit too big for us. If you have the space for it I seriously love everything about this collection and would highly recommend it. Ok, so why do I love it? First of all… it’s a 5-in-1 convertible crib! That’s what originally drew me to the crib in the first place. What that means is that it’s a bed for baby, toddler AND teen. You may notice that the side of the crib kind of looks like a headboard. That’s because it is. It completely converts into a double bed (which is flippin amazing if you ask me). The style is extremely elegant and the brand is very well known for it’s craftsmanship. Natart is a Canadian company that uses solid wood for all of it’s furniture. They are also known to have really great safety ratings.
So what are you looking for in your crib? Something just for baby? Do you want it to grow with your child? To convert to a double bed or maybe even a couch? We’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
Until next time,
