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.

Your baby is, naturally, the focus of attention in the nursery and as he will be spending a large part of his day in his crib, the biggest focus in the nursery furniture belongs to the crib.

If you are looking for a non-traditional looking crib, round cribs might be an interesting style to check out. Here's what you need to know before you buy one...

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. 

3. Create Enchanting Themes and Looks.
