Read thisOverall this crib is nicePro:SmallSturdyNiceCons:The front and back rail are identical in height and width and not labeled. One of them is drilled specifically for the back. If you think it is mis drilled, check the other railing in case. It is possible it is misdrilled. We did have to have our first replaced. We thought when the 2nd arrived that again a mistake was made, but we figured it out.
Mini cribI love the size, very nice

Great crib but some damageGreat crib, great size and look, but one wooden piece had lots of scratches and scuffs. Disappointing. One piece of hardware was also damaged and we had to go buy a replacement.

Sturdy, hard to assemble aloneFeels super sturdy. This was tough to assemble alone. Given, I was nearly 9 months pregnant at the time. Fits wonderfully in our space and our baby has plenty of room to grow! So happy with this purchase.
Nice crib that can be used for cosleepingWhen we were expecting our son in 2012, we decided to buy a mini-crib for a number reasons:1) Space – we wanted to keep the baby in our room for a while, but could not accommodate a larger crib. Further, we didn’t feel the desire to convert his crib into a full-size bed later. Twin size was preferred, which is possible with this model.2) Continuity – We wanted a baby bed that would last a while. Son is 16 months old now, tall-ish, and still fits pretty well. I think we have at least a few more months. We plan to transition directly to a twin bed/mattress. Our situation was also a little unique in that we were moving to a new home approximately 3 months after the baby was born, but wanted to keep our son in a bed he was used to, even if everything else changed. We were afraid a bassinet or ArmsReach would be outgrown before the move, and that we’d have to get another crib anyways.3) Thrift – mini-cribs are way cheaper than full-size ones. Note: we did replace the included pad with a better mattress. The crib was a good deal with or without the pad.We went with this particular model due to its style, price, non-toxic finish, and sturdiness. The natural wood color is very nice and barely shows scuffs, unlike some of our other “espresso” furniture. Assembly was pretty easy.We actually took the fourth side off and “sidecarred” the crib to our bed for the first 8 months, using bungee cords. The height matched nicely since there are four settings on the crib, and we were able to adjust it to match a platform bed, or mattress and box spring on the floor. We started on the highest setting, and pretty much moved it down as our son got older and potentially more able to fall out.When the crib was first side-carred, there was a gap of a few inches between the mattress and the bed. So we cut a piece of masonite a couple inches wider than the crib and put it on the bottom of the three-sided crib. Then, we moved the mattress over towards the bed and rolled up a towel to put in the gap between the mattress and the crib side opposite the bed. Put a sheet over everything, and voila, gapless cosleeping arrangement. (My definition of cosleeping here is to have the baby at the same level as the bed and close enough to reach out to, but in his own space for the majority of the night.) We used this arrangement for naps too, and just put a body pillow on the bed/crib seam where the 4th side would have been to prevent rolling/crawling out. This setup lasted about 7-8 months for us (until baby was able to crawl over the body pillow) before we put the 4th side back on the crib and moved it a little further from the parental bed. The setup in general was very convenient for late night feedings, rather than having to zombie-walk around the room/house multiple times a night.Anyways, I recommend this crib, especially if you are looking for a potential longer-term (to toddler age) cosleeping arrangement but don’t want to share your bed or have room for something larger.

It’s a great bedIt’s a great bed easy to assemble and great for the space. Just wish I’d read more before buying a full size baby bed mattress. NOTE: It does not use a full size baby bed mattress. Although it does come with a very thin one.
SturdySturdy and well made. I am impressed. Mini crib might not fit my large baby (22lbs / 7.5 months) for much longer but that is not the cribs fault. Works well for what I’m using it for – just a nighttime crib to keep baby close in our room since he outgrew his bassinet.
Extremely Satisfied DadMy 14 month old is an escape artist… I bought this crib because of the height. These are the pros:-Highest crib I found to make it harder for my little one to climb.- Great price for the materials.- Materials are strong, it feels very firm.- Very easy to put together with clear pictures and instructions.- Great for small rooms, it is not a full size crib so make sure you are ok with measurements before buying.- Great colors selection to choose from.- Simple, clean and yet elegant design.- legs are lower to the floor incase you need to lower the mattress’ base to the floor for extreme jailbrakers. 👌 (Buy this one) My little one failed to climb it, and I can still lower it even more… ;)- Very well packed and wrapped to prevent damages during shipping.Cons: I’m yet to find one…FYI:- It comes with a thin waterproof matress.. If you buy a regular size crib mattress it won’t fit in this crib. Check the size if you are planning to buy a thicker one! I bought a memory foam mattress for portable play yards once it was safe for my little one. He loves it and he sleeps like it is meant to be!

Una opción excelente para espacios pequeñosLa cuna es muy bonita. Mide 100x70cm, sólo unos 10cm más ancha que el colecho Next2Me de Chicco. De manera que quedó exacta para el espacio limitado en mi recámara y aún así le servirá al menos hasta el año y medio o dos años, espero.Es fácil de armar (sí requerí la ayuda de mi esposo para sostener los lados en algunos momentos). Importantísimo leer todo el instructivo antes. Como leí que en algunos casos la madera olía, decidí sacar las piezas en la sala unos días. Lo que más olía era la base de mdf del colchón, pero muy poco. En realidad, la cuna grande que compré en Liverpool tardó mucho más en quitársele el olor a pintura para madera.Tiene 4 alturas, siendo la primera para recién nacido. La compramos cuando mi hijo empezó a sentarse a los 6 meses y el colecho ya no era seguro. Lo pusimos en la segunda altura, pero empezó a pararse y tratar de alcanzar cosas a la semana y tuvimos que bajarlo un nivel más. (Update: tras cumplir el año, hemos llegado a la altura más baja). El cambio de alturas es relativamente fácil, pero se requiere desarmar el panel frontal.En cuanto el colchón, trae una colchoneta suave de hule espuma de unos 3cm de ancho recubierta de vinilo que va sobre la base de mdf. No encontré un reemplazo que no tuviera cubierta de vinilo, así que iInicialmente usamos hule espuma de 7cm de grosor (cortado a medida de la colchoneta, 95x60cm, aunque de largo le faltaron un par de cm, porque queda un hueco), forrado con pellón y funda de popelina. Encima de la funda, un protector waterproof y sábanas, ambos de American Company, de 38x24x5″ que usaba en el colecho. (Update: a sus 16 meses, conseguimos al fin un colchón propiamente, el Slumber Time Naturally de Simmons, de 4”/10cm y con cubierta de algodón, para mini cunas. Es firme y queda justo al tamaño de la cuna. Aún lo estamos probando).

Excelente producto a un muy buen precio. La compré con descuento pero ya teniéndola en persona, vale totalmente el costo normal. Buena calidad de pintura, bastante firme y se ve muy bonita. Después comprare el kit para convertirla en cama individual y tenerlo guardado en caso en que desaparezca el producto de Amazon.Excelente compra.
