If I researched the stuff we buy for ourselves this much, I would have to make it a full-time gig!
Here were the most important factors for our crib search: Oh, and budget-friendly obviously. Anyway, I browsed countless websites and read review after review.
Not only are they stylish they give a very serene and inviting setting to any room. Will def use it again for this wee one.
Some of my faves, but that were totally out of the budget? This Hudson 3-in-1 convertible crib by Babyletto: And the Classic Crib by fancy-shmancy company, Ouef: But then I discovered the Baby Mod line by Walmart and was totally sold.
The products are super environmentally friendly, made with all non-toxic finishes hardwood, paints, glues, everything — and are essentially knock-offs of the higher end crib designs. And the price tag?
I was totally ready to pull the trigger on the Modena in white. Well, too good to be true for this Canadian gal.
The Baby Mod line seems to only be available at the Walmart in the States. And even though there is a Walmart that we pass when we head down to the Adirondacks in upper NY state , there are super strict rules about bringing baby stuff across the border.
They have a bunch of regulations about cribs, strollers, car seats, and bassinets — for good reason obviously as we want to meet Canadian safety standards, but still. Hmmm — not worth the risk, we decided.
After trying to find something similar here in Canada, I just kept coming up short. So where did we end up?
Oh well — you win some, you lose some. For white cribs, there were 3 options. I know a lot of folks who have this crib and love it. All three were the same in terms of their materials, had two levels higher for when baby is small, and lower when babe is a little bigger , and the ability to convert into a toddler bed. So it came down to aesthetics.
We really liked the look of the full ends that the Sundvik had, and the white wash finish made it look like a much higher end piece of furniture. I stepped aside for this one and Dan-the-man put it together in less than an hour. You can sort of make out the white wash effect in the photos above and below. Oh and we grabbed a mid-range mattress at IKEA while we were there too. You may also spot the window trim that recently got painted!
What about you guys?
Ikea does sell fitted sheets that will fit the mattress, and we purchased a set, but the quality was poor and the jersey knit quickly got holes in it. I was totally ready to pull the trigger on the Modena in white.
Ever had to buy a crib for your little person? Were you a bit more decisive than I was? Did you splurge or save? Have a fave brand?
