Mini crib

Has anyone ever used a mini crib I have seen them on several websites but I didn't know if they would work for a baby or if the baby would grow out of it too soon to justify the purchase

Re: Mini crib

  • Me! We lived in a one bedroom condo and DD slept in her mini crib until she was over 2 years old (she's average height), and then we transitioned her to a twin bed. DS is in the mini crib now since we already had it.

    We have the Delta Mini Emily crib.

  • How much smaller are the mini cribs than a standard sized crib

  • We lived with my parents while my husband was deployed and she slept in a mini crib (until she was a year old). She still sleeps in it when we visit and now at 16 months she still fits in it. I'm not sure exactly how much smaller it is, but it's significantly smaller, like half the size.

  • Was it hard to find bedding for the cribs
  • We also lived in a 1 bedroom condo when we had DS, so we chose a Davinci Emily mini crib. DS slept in it until he was almost a year old (and he is top of the charts in growth.) There doesn't seem to be a lot of bedding options, but I found the Gerber knit regular crib sheets to be a great fit. Wash them first and they shrink to just the right size. We added a breathable bumper (Amazon) and mobile and called it a day. We did buy the Davinci Crescent mattress to go with it and a waterproof matress pad.
