Wooden Baby Crib/Cot/ or Iron Baby Crib/Cot:
Your first question should be is the baby crib/cot made of quality materials? Most new parents never consider the material that a cot/crib is made of. Actually some consider it a feature. But, choosing baby crib/cot that is made from quality materials can make a big difference between a baby crib/cot that you wish you never bought and plan to put it in a yard sale as soon as you can. Or one that is used for years and could be passed down to family members.
Wooden baby cribs should be painted or stained hardwoods like oak, beech, maple or ash. By using inferior woods in the manufacturing process the overall stability of the baby crib/cot could be threatened. Causing it to weakened and/or warped with use. Some baby crib/cots are also made from metal such as iron. While iron baby cribs/cots can be beautiful, the styling can be limited over time. So we suggest that if you plan on keeping your baby crib/cot for years, make sure the metal styling will be something you will still like in the future.
To Drop or Not to Drop: Issues to Consider with the Baby Crib Side Bar
Baby cribs/cots are made either with fixed, double-drop or single-drop sides. For tall people fixed sides are fine. When you begin checking out cribs/cots you’ll soon discover that the higher end models will come with side rails. These side rails can lower on both sides of the baby crib/cot. Depending on how you position the baby crib/cot, this could be a nice feature. But this feature won’t add any benefit for you if you’re planning on just placing the crib up against a wall.
Three basic types of drop sides:
- Knee Push-Leaning your knee against the baby crib side to lower it. This is typically a simple and quiet type of drop side.
- Foot Bar-Balancing on one foot, you push a lever to lower the baby crib side. This may be a bit tricky depending on how you are standing on one foot.
- Double Trigger-You have to use two hands to lower the side. This style is OK as long as you are not holding the baby. But, it is not very convenient since you will most likely have your baby in your arms before you lower the baby crib side.
Keep in mind that you will often have your baby in your arms when you are trying to lower the bar. So ideally, you want to raise and lower the side rail with ease. So if you are checking out some cribs in a store, try lowering the bar yourself while imaging that you have your baby in your arms. This will give you an idea of how easy it will be when you are trying to put your baby down to sleep. A little hard to do if your shopping online. Also, be sure that the rails have locking mechanisms to prevent accidental release. You may want to consider how quietly the side rail raises and lowers. You would not want it to wake your sleeping baby.
Does the Baby Crib Allow you to Lower the Mattress:
Will the baby crib/cot that you’re looking to buy lets you adjust the height of the mattress. Unless you are tall, a higher mattress will make it easier for you to get your baby in and out of the baby crib. But once your baby starts to move around, you will have to lower the mattress. Make sure the baby crib you buy should have at least 2 height positions for the mattress. Some higher end models will have 3 height levels which is a nice bonus feature.
Baby Cribs With Drawers:
You’ll discover that some of the higher end models will have drawers in the bottom of the baby crib/cot. This may be a good feature to have, if space is an issue for you. You may be able to save the cost of buying a dresser for
your little one also.
Baby Cribs With Wheels:
Wheels come with some cribs/cots. So if your planing on moving the baby crib/cot around this would definitely be a good feature to have. A plus when it comes to cleaning under the baby crib and a whole lot easier to change the linens. Not to mention being able to roll a baby crib into another room.
Metal wheels you’ll find are much better than plastic wheels. But we want to mention here that this could also be a potential danger as well, especially if you have other smaller children in the home. The potential is there for them to push the baby cot themselves (i.e. down the stairs, up against a window or furniture). So check to make sure that the wheels have a good, solid locking mechanism before buying. If the baby crib that you want does not come with wheels, you can always buy high quality wheels and install them yourself or have someone install them for you.
Convertible Crib: Baby Cribs that Convert into Other Things
Many baby cribs are designed to convert to a toddler bed, a bench, or even an adult daybed for later use. While this is a very nice feature to have with your baby crib, make sure that you like what it converts to. If it converts to a toddler bed, consider how long your toddler will be able to sleep in it. You may end up having to buy a regular size twin bed in a few years if you child outgrows the toddler bed. Also, most baby cribs with this feature require an additional kit to make the conversion. Be sure to check on how much this kit will cost you before making your decision.

Snuggle Me Organic | Baby Lounger & Infant Floor Seat
Can this cozy lounger help fussy babies? Is it safe to use for co-sleeping?
This baby nest was an instant hit from the moment it hit the market. Desperate and sleepy parents took one look at it
and thought “Yes! This has got to be good for my cranky newborn that never, ever wants to be put down!!”
From the comforting and cuddling sling design, to the prospect of being a safe co-sleeping space, the Snuggle Me Organic sold like hot cakes.
But here we all are a couple of years later. This pillow still has major benefits, but it’s not as great of a co-sleeper as originally thought. That’s because of the suffocation risk that the sides of the pillow pose. You can still use it to co-sleep, but the company and even the AAP recommends against it.
It still snuggles around baby to keep them feeling cozy and secure during awake times. It’s made with all-natural materials, no chemicals, and the softest organic cotton. The Snuggle Me Organic is a fantastic piece of baby gear that can help your baby chill and rest easily!
