Ikea Cribs

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!

Re: Ikea Cribs

  • I bought the Sundvik crib but we haven't set it up yet. We opted for that one because the Sniglar didn't seem very sturdy or durable. I'm curious to know what others who have actually used think, I have always loved Ikea furniture.

  • We have the Sundvik crib (FTM, so I can't ocmment on how it holds up).  Ikea cribs are rated high by baby bargains.  Friends of ours have one, and love theirs, so we went with it.  Looks great in our nursery!

  • 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.
  • It's nice, sturdy, and has awesome reviews on BabyBargains. I say go for it!

    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 have had one for 2 yrs and you would not be able to tell that as it looks new. We love it and have never had an issue.
  • 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!

     

     

  • They get really great reviews I just don't like that they are so low to the ground. As far as the rest of the furniture I bought almost all of mine at Ikea and love it. Saved so much and money and it all looks really great. GL!

  • 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 bought two Sniglar cribs for the twins.  We spent $$$ for our first baby and got a Munire.  The Munire is prettier, for sure, but really the Sniglars are just fine.  They are sturdy when assembled correctly, they look nice in the nursery - very clean lines, and with bedding and what not, well they look like cribs.  We are using DD's crib mattress and the one my parents had in her toddler bed - so two Sealys.  They fit great.  Also, the two pack of Ikea crib sheets that they sell are really nice.  A soft knit that has all the way around elastic and fits the Sealy mattresses fine.

  • I am a bit surpised, to be honest.  It just seems like their prices are too good to be true sometimes and with a baby crib it can be scary to go "cheap" so I am really happy to hear all these great reviews.  Thanks, ladies!

  • 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.

  • We bought the Gulliver, seems to be just fine. The mattress is a Nook Pebble Lite, and it's super snug.

  • 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!
