Round cribs give the nursery an exotic look.

Planning to buy a crib is a long drawn process. Read our pages on Baby Cribs to better understand your options and make an informed decision.

1. Wider than Traditional Cribs.

Many parents are opting for round or oval cribs as they are wider than traditional cribs. This allows the infant better movement without the risk of his arms or legs hanging through the slats.

2. You will require a Special Mattress.

If you decide to purchase a round or oval shaped crib, remember to pick up a round mattress with the correct measurements. Usually online stores include the mattress. Crib bedding that fits your round crib perfectly is also easily available including dome covers, sheets, valances, dust ruffles and bumper guards.
Tip: Slide your fingers between the mattress and crib. If you can fit two fingers in, the mattress is too small. This can be dangerous for your baby. Make sure that even with a mattress in place, the crib sides are tall enough to keep your baby safely inside. (For more on crib safety features, click here.)

4. Wood and Iron Options As Well.

Not only are there themed and exotic looks of these cribs, they are readily available in wood as well as iron. You also have the freedom to choose

from various wood finishes such as White, Ivory, Natural and Cherry. Matching other furniture in the nursery to this crib will be a snap.

5. Round can be Convertible too.

Do you prefer the long-term benefits of convertible cribs yet yearn for something different. You can get them both…convertible cribs are avialable in the round shaped ones as well. Our Favorite Piece is the Stokke - Sleepi Complete: Bassinet, Crib and Junior Bed Set. Not only does it convert from crib to bassinet as well as a toddler bed, you can also convert it to two chairs.
