              What to look for in a crib

              Did you know newborns sleep an average of 17 hours a day? That’s a lot of time spent in bed! Even if you plan to wait a few months to transition your baby to a crib, they’ll still be using it a good 12+ hours a day. So, of course, you want them to be comfortable. You also want to establish good sleep habits from the get-go, as sleep is critical for a baby's growth and brain development—not to mention your own mental health and wellbeing as a parent. Still trying to navigate how to get your baby to take a nap? We've got your covered. 

              The good news is, all cribs manufactured after 2011 meet current safety standards, so as long as you’re purchasing new, you’re all set. Some things to keep in mind when shopping for a crib are the size of your nursery, whether you’ll be room sharing (and for how long), and if you plan on having more kids—will you pass down your crib or would you prefer it grow with your child into toddlerhood? A crib is a great item to add to your registry checklist so it's a good to start thinking about what will work best for your family earlier rather than later. 

              Another thing to think about is your overall design style and aesthetic. Are you more of a mid-century modern family or is everything in your house traditional? For many parents, budget is a big deciding factor so it’s good to have a rough number in mind and filter your options online based on that. Love to travel? Consider investing in a travel crib to make your life on the go easier. 

              Without further adieu, we break down the best cribs for baby—all available at Maisonette.

              Best Budget Crib: Carter’s by Davinci Colby 4-In-1 Low-Profile Convertible Crib

Colby also comes in several different colorways so you can keep it neutral with gray or make the nursery pop with petal pink. On the shorter side? You’ll love the low profile design, which makes getting baby in and out of the crib a breeze.

                      One of the best baby cribs, hands down. While most modern cribs are convertible, the Babyletto Yuzu takes versatility to a whole different level. This crib starts as a bassinet and becomes a junior bed when your babe is big enough. It’s also everything you need it to be—from a mini crib to a toddler bed—in those in-between stages. At $600, it’s definitely not cheap, but considering the fact that it comes with ALL the conversion kits you’ll ever need (almost unheard of in the world of convertible cribs!), it’s totally worth the splurge.
