Has anyone bought one? Has anyone had any prior experience with them? I kind of like the Sundvik crib but I am afraid the quality might be awful so I would love to hear some reviews!
whatyoudotome:We bought all of DD's furniture there and after 3 years it still looks great. Other than being a PITA to put together (poor DH, lol) I have nothing but positive things to say about it. We still use the dresser and armoire and it stands up to DD's occasional kicks and slams. We'll use the crib again for this baby when we move from the bassinet.
We have all the Hemnes pieces in our bedroom and just bought a dresser for DD's room and a dresser for the nursery. Our stuff has held up really well, no scratches or dings through 2 moves.
But yeah, IKEA stuff is a PITA to build!
I decorated LO's entire room with IKEA, crib, dresser, mirror, etc... It looks amazing and the crib seems to be very durable. I spent FAR MORE money on my daughters furniture and I can't say that the stuff from IKEA looks or feels like a step down in quality. GO for it, and this coming from a pretty picky mom!
For those of you with Ikea cribs, are you using an Ikea mattress? If not, what kind of mattress did you get?
I have the sundvik crib set up and ready to go, but haven't actually used it yet. It seems sturdy enough for me and I really like the look of it. I'm curious to see how it holds up, but I've read plenty of good reviews from years prior and it seems that most people love their ikea cribs and they hold up well. I was also drawn to it because it's lower to the ground. Since I'm only 5'4" I was afraid I wouldn't be able to lay the baby down in the crib on the lowest setting and I feel fine with the height of the sundvik crib. I also love the price!
As for the crib mattress I purchased the sealy soybean foam-core crib mattress and it fits the sundvik crib really well.
We have a Sniglar. It is great! We only wanted a solid wood crib that was either unfinished or had an eco-friendly finish. We were looking at $900-$2k or the $70 Ikea one. We went Ikea. The mattress platform is fiberboard, but that was worth the heavy price "discount". We use a Naturepedic mattress with it.

I didnt buy the Ikea mattress...I bought a serta or seally or something like that at target or babies r us
We bought the Gulliver crib (with the mattress) and changing table. I didn't have much choice though, because I live in Japan and Ikea is one of the few places here that you can get a more "western"-style crib and baby furniture.
Anyway, haven't used it yet, but it's all assembled and ready and I'm pleased. Seems sturdy, the mattress is snug and it was pretty easy to put together. I like the simplicity of Ikea stuff. And you can't beat the price!
