Glider Rockers For Your Baby And You

Rock-a-bye Mommy in the treetop. Oops, that should have been “baby”. Well, you get the drift, don’t you? Glider Rockers for your baby and you could be the perfect choice for those lullaby times. It’s a smooth move for the little one(s).

Yes, they do rock, and in addition, they glide forward and backward. Some models swivel and even recline to give parent(s) and babies a more comfortable rocking experience.

Glider rockers have been used in the nursery and other rooms, wherever they are the most practical, for many years. The soothing motion of moving forward and back, calms babies and helps result in a sweet sleep.

That is a much-needed result for parent(s) and babies. Comfort is the keyword here. These glider rockers are used day and night for feeding and sleeping. When Mom is comfy, so is baby.

Having experienced these Glider Rockers for your baby and you in the retail business and buying sector, I’ll share some ways to help you make informed decisions.

Glider Rockers Are Available In Different Styles

You have many choices from traditional to contemporary and modern glider rockers. A Swivel Glider, when adding an ottoman, is a potentially great choice. It’s always nice to put your feet up and enjoy additional comfort. This type of glider swivels three hundred and sixty degrees and glides from front to back.

A Push Button Reclining Glider is an exciting way to bring the technical world into play. Just as you can purchase other furniture that reclines using an electric button, this control comes in handy with a reclining glider as well. So, this has the bells and whistles. You can recline electronically, glide and swivel.

A Regular Glider Rocker does exactly that, glides and rocks. They, like other glider rockers, are a parent’s dream, when it comes to where feeding, holding gently, and reading stories is required.

What Should You Look For When Purchasing?

Comfort. Comfort. Comfort. Sort of like location, location, and location. If it’s not great, it probably won’t do you a lot of good. We are small, medium, large, and somewhere-in-between people when it comes to our stature.

Once you find a glider rocker you like, be sure to sit in it for a little while. “Test drive” it, so to speak. How does your head, back, and lumbar area feel? If you’re a little over five feet like my lovely wife, (had to put that in there) you’ll want your feet to touch the floor. This makes sense if you really want to feel good after you’ve been in the glider rocker for a while.

What About The Quality Of Your Glider?

Your fabric choice is a great opportunity to choose quality and color. No matter what fabric you choose, I would recommend one that is durable and cleanable. Let’s face it, babies spit and they don’t care which direction and how much!

If Mom is looking for comfort, fabric choices might include those that provide a comfortable, warm feel. While leather and vinyl are cold, cloth fabric choices are softer and warmer for Mom!

The ruse that both leather and vinyl eventually warm up to your body temperature is barely accurate at its best. Besides, have you ever heard of a baby waiting patiently for Mom to be warm and comfortable before feeding begins? Not in my lifetime.

Therefore, I strongly suggest cleanable fabric. Although I’m recommending fabric, if you really want leather, you can buy fabric covers to put over your leather or vinyl glider rocker while using it in the nursery and then remove the cover once you want to use the glider rocker in another room. This is just a heads-up thought for you to consider.

Construction durability is of obvious importance. Hardwood frames, such as oak and cherry, are extremely well-built. However, with that comes a higher cost than softwood frames and even some metal, which are not as prevalent.

Armrests are something to consider as well. Mom or Dad often sit in the glider rocker for long periods of time. The cushion effect of an armrest is a major plus when you’ve been cradling the baby in your arms for a while. You’ll see these armrests on wooden glider rockers most of the time. Make sure you consider this when making your choice.

Of course, nearly all fabric, leather and vinyl do have padded arms. This is great, no matter what you purchase. Go ahead and spoil yourself with this simple addition to comfort.

How Much Will I Pay?

Perhaps as little as one-hundred-twenty five dollars or more and even into the thousands. This depends on you. Some parents like to invest a little more. In that case, they may be considering the use of the glider rocker in a different room once it is no longer needed in the nursery.

Obviously, the infant won’t always be that age and parents could choose a glider rocker that would fulfill both needs – present-day and then transition in the future. This would be cost-effective for long-term goals.

Leather and vinyl will usually have a higher price tag than other fabrics but they have better longevity.

Suffice it to say, whatever your choice is, you really do get what you pay for. I’ve found this to be true with over thirty-five years in the retail industry.

What About Warranties On Glider Rockers?

As I mentioned earlier, you often get what you pay for. Most manufacturers offer some type of warranty but as you’re looking at options, please be sure to check on whether the item you like includes one.

Many companies also offer extended warranties. Overall, I believe, in many cases, it’s well worth the additional cost. Make sure that you keep all paperwork (including the original receipt from your purchase) is kept with your financial records. If you should need to use your warranty coverage, you must be able to present the paperwork.

Summary Of Glider Rockers For Your Baby And You

A glider rocker is an item that both Mom and Dad will welcome as they spend hours comforting and feeding their baby. We’ve explored the different types of glider rockers for your baby and you – from the basic no-frills chair that rocks and glides to the bells and whistles of an electric reclining glider that also swivels.

Fabric versus leather or vinyl is also a feature to consider as you are looking at different models, as well as the comfort of armrests. Personal preference will guide your choices. Pricing varies as you make your choice of features – just remember, you get what you pay for! Be sure to check into warranties as you explore all your options.

Furniture Plus Decor For Your Baby

Alright. Here you are with your newborn. Girl(s)? Boy(s)? One, twins, triplets, sextuplets? E-gads! Grandma, lend me a hand, a clothes washer, anything! Whatever your preferences, you’re sure to grab hold of some special choices of furniture plus decor for your baby that fit your needs.

triplet dollsGender determines the bedroom choices for your children. I’d like to help you with some ideas you might take a fancy to. We’ll look at choices that fit both genders and think about what they need and can get along without.

Let’s take a look-see. The possibilities are literally endless. We’ll narrow them down to the basics. Furnishing your baby’s room with what they require is an exciting time for the parent(s). Let’s move on and have some fun!

Furniture Plus Decor For Your Baby

Well, let’s see. First, comes into your world a sweet, beautiful, little baby(s). If you were already aware of the gender, you may have started with furniture choices. If not, your next step is usually buying furniture for him or her. Let’s take a look at where to start.

There are a lot of items for a baby’s bedroom to consider. You can’t get them all, so you look for what you really “need”. Obviously, you have to choose the necessary items that will at least cover the basic functions.

Furniture Needs For Baby Girls And Boys

We all have our own personalities that influence the furniture and decor choices we make for our babies. There’s no doubt you are going to pick some basic items, and that’s what we’ll take a look at here.

You can then expand on these ideas which will bring into account your own creativity. This will be a fun experience for you.
rocking chairf

The first item that comes to my mind is a ROCKING CHAIR that is for the comfort of Mom when rocking her little one to sleep or feeding. Using a rocking chair is undoubtedly a great motion addition that soothes and brings comfort to both baby and mother.

An alternative could be the use of a GLIDER. Both come with leather or fabric upholstery, and faux leathecrib & gliderr which is a lot easier to keep clean when accidents happen. Yes, have no doubts, accidents will occur.

So where does the baby sleep?

Naturally, in a bassinetBASSINET or a CRIB that meets safety standards. It could be fancy or very simple, whatever suits your taste.

chest of drawersWhat about a Chest of Drawers or Dresser or perhaps both? It’s a great idea to have at least three-to-four drawers in each and maybe even five. The little ones require a change of clothes quite frequently during a twelve-hour period or more. Keeping everything contained in one room and at hand makes those changes easy.

You’re all aware of Changing Tables and they are great to have if room permits. There are many designs available that can fit a budget and your particular preferences.

More Thoughts About Baby Furniture

When choosing a rocking chair or glider, you need to be able to sit down with your baby and have as much comfort as possible. This is very important during feeding time. Whenever possible, you may want to choose one that rocks and swivels as well. Look closely at the arms on the item you choose – they will get a lot of use as you hold the baby so they need to be at a comfortable height (some padding never hurts either)!

What other thoughts for your bassinet or crib should be considered? They must be safe! Moms and dads soon realize that government-recognized safety rules are there to protect their little ones. Be careful about blankets and crib liners as these can cause suffocation of infants.

Considering babies (newborns) can sleep up to 13-15 hours a day, the crib or bassinet must be comfortable and meet safety guidelines. Be sure the baby can be seen from all sides of the crib, especially if you are monitoring them by video.

baby changing pad

To reiterate, it’s no surprise that the little squirts go through diapers and clothes numerous times a day. Easily four to five times a day and into early evening. Do you have room for a changing table? If not, you can purchase a changing pad and use it on top of the dresser or chest.

Decor And Other Goodies For Your Babies

A firm mattress is what I recommend, simply because they provide great support. Foam may be OK for adults, however, I strongly suggest you stay away from them for the safety of the baby. Obviously, hypoallergenic is a strong suit when making your choice.

Yes, it’s true. Babies wet the bed! I know, hard to believe isn’t it? Joking aside, be sure to purchase a waterproof cover for the mattress and if your little one sleeps with you, it’s important to protect your own mattress as well. Quality sheets are a given, preferably tight-weave cotton. Have back-up sheet supplies because you’re going to be washing and washing and…well, you get the idea.

A pillow for Mom is a great relief when rocking the little one. If Mom’s comfortable, there’s a good chance the baby will be as well.

Don’t forget the obvious: have plenty of extras when it comes to cleaning supplies, clothes and a personal manufacturing plant to roll out diaper after diaper! Seriously speaking, consider quality diapers in addition to a good stack of wipes.

Other Items to Consider

As I suggested earlier, a changing table is wonderful to have but if not possible then a changing pad as mentioned above.

Have you considered toys? It’s a good idea to a point. Don’t go overboard as you can introduce your baby to different ones over time. They do grow, and with their growth comes different interests.

crib mobile
Our little ones loved their mobiles.

They were entertaining and made them smile a lot, kick their legs and coo a bunch. In other words they enjoyed them. Give them a twirl!

diaper stack

Where have you planned to throw those wet, soiled diapers your baby uses quite frequently? A diaper pail? Yes! Let’s face it, they smell and something with a lid can curb that. Use a kitchen trash bag inside the pail, deposit those special treats the kids leave in their diapers, and tie the bag before finally putting it all in the regular trash. There are products available that will even vacuum-seal your dirty diapers so that the odor is minimal and the bag is compact for your trash can.

That’s It When Choosing Baby Furniture

As you’ve read through this, I trust this information about baby furniture and decor was insightful and helpful. Perhaps fresh ideas have spurred some wonderful steps you’ll take to make great choices for your baby.

My goal is to help you help yourself. Whatever your needs are, I’ll gladly assist you in your special search, using information and resources to guide you in your decisions.

When it all gets down to it, choices of furniture plus decor for your baby are too numerous to mention. What are the absolute necessities? Would you like to have everything possible? Perhaps, but once the little love gets in your home, ideas can change.

Give yourself a little leeway and leave space for additions.

is an exciting choice and very common.

 

 

unicorn

What about different “Animals”?

Lifelike, (in pictures),

such as lions or horses,

Baby Decor Wallpaper

Have you considered the multitude of wallpaper choices that add to your decor? I will share a few but won’t bore you with an endless list.

wall decor mosiac

Wallpaper of varying designs and colors are a hit. This can include scenery that shows beautiful floral choices or even abstract patterns in the colors of your theme.

 

You can design your baby girl’s room decor to have the overall theme show up in the wallpaper you choose. Perhaps you could use a wall border, along with a complementary color of wall paint, to accent your chosen baby room theme.

Decor ideas can include, but not be limited to: art, the beach with its seagulls, dogs, cats, mermaids, cartoons, unicorns, fairy tales, princess-theme, beautiful sunsets or colorful rainbows. What about flowers, trees, nature’s wild kingdom, selfie wallpaper that is customized, the twinkling stars of the night, all of which can generate exciting decor ideas to finish off a coordinated look.

To go with the wallpaper, you might choose different mirror ideas, shelving, artwork, picture frames, or baskets to hold toys and stuffed animals. Of course, there are the ever-popular mobiles that please all baby girls.

Baby Decor Using Stickers And Murals

You can also choose to hang wall murals that are mass-produced or you can have them customized. The choices even include stencils for murals that are “paint by number” so that you can create your own design. As mentioned, a great alternative for your decor is the use of stencils. This is another “go-to” idea for a baby girl’s nursery. You can have a great time decorating her room with a stencil theme highlighted with additional color-filled decor.

If you are like many parents, a budget is always a consideration. Stencils look great and they are less expensive than wallpaper. light switch decal
I suggest checking around to find stencils that have an up-to-date (contemporary or modern) look. So many are now extremely easy to use and there are a plethora of design possibilities.

Some other possibilities might include light switches with cute stickers that add frivolity, or perhaps arrangements of colorful butterfly stickers on the wall. butterfly stickers

Vinyl removable stickers are incredibly popular and available by the thousands. You choose stickers that go along with your theme and then “peel and stick” wherever you want the accent. These can later be removed and re-positioned or changed completely as your child grows.

Choices include chalkboard stickers that could be used to create decor with meaningful words or phrases or personalized wall stickers with the baby’s name or initials or different items that go along with your theme (such as a flower mural with your baby’s name in it.)

Cartoon characters and even enlarged selfie pictures are incredibly popular. Fortunately, they even make a wallpaper that is also “peel and stick”. This makes the decorating project so much easier! You really can expand your creative skills and design many decor ideas. The sky is the limit.

Go ahead. Indulge. This can be super fun even if you’ve never done it before. If you’re a creative person and want to put your personal touch on the final outcome, then go for it!

Additional Baby Decor Ideas For A Girl

1. Themes and decor about baby dolls are always a popular “girl” idea that can transition into a lot of fun and creativeness.

stuffed animals

 

2. Animals such as cute lions, bears, pandas, giraffes, bunnies, and squirrels.  This decor could be lifelike or animated.

3. How about boats such as canoes, sail, or other types that would be cute in a baby decor concept? For girls? You bet.

4. Remember “Rubber Duckies”? How about ducks, geese, swans, and other aquatic animals that live above water?

5. In doubt? Go to the library or book store. Gravitate to the children’s storybooks. Ideas will pop out as quick as a wink.

circus tent

 

6. Balloons (not real). A terrific decor idea. This could include, perhaps, a colorful circus background with a carousel, etc.

 

If you are attentive to wall hangings, pictures, toys, area rugs, lamps, or light fixtures, etc., you can create a super cool theme with decor that accentuates.

Let’s Cuddle Up To Cute Baby Decor

In simple terms, decor is nothing more than how a room is decorated. I’ve shared some basic ideas. Let’s review some important points.

We enjoyed bringing baby decor to the forefront starting with fantasy and fairies. I know we are all familiar with many stories that have delighted even the youngest girls with their sparkling surroundings, including diamond tiaras and golden necklaces.

Theme decor is a never-ending opportunity to decorate your baby girl’s bedroom. Aquatic, princess, butterflies, and animals are just a few decor ideas. The use of wallpaper and stencils to match these ideas adds pizazz to a complete look, along with picture frames, wall decor such as shelving or mirrors, art, and baskets.

Area rugs, trees, and plants, or stuffed animals all enhance your complete creative theme which has been finished off with your great baby decor selections.

It’s been a pleasure sharing baby decor with you and your little girl. Do stay in touch with our updated articles for your furniture plus decor ideas.

Baby Decor For Your Boy

In order to create a one-of-a-kind space for your baby boy, there are several areas to consider in the process of making the room design a cohesive one. You will want to decide on an overall decorating theme and then choose paint colors and furniture style. Once these decisions have been made, it’s time for choosing coordinating baby decor and accessories!

This can be hugely enjoyable for the parent(s). It’s like being a kid again with the excitement of getting something new. Remember what is often referred to as our “child within”? Go with it and have fun! Enjoy this opportunity to spoil your newborn boy with gender-unique baby decor that also makes you happy.

Considerations For Your Boy
boy child

As we all know, our babies are always the cutest and we find ourselves picking equally special decor and accessories for our unique bundles of joy. Keep in mind that your theme and baby decor will usually take you through the first couple of years of your baby’s life so you want to make choices accordingly. Choose items that are age-appropriate but can still “grow” along with the baby.

Sports Theme Baby Decor

There’s always a sport that can be a catalyst for a theme. The first that comes to mind for a boy is some type of BALL – bseball in glovebaseball, soccer, basketball, or football, for example. You might consider painting one wall to mimic the ball of the sport you’ve chosen and using an area rug that matches the sport.

Additional decor could include artwork with a football idea. How about pictures of famous characters in uniforms? Perhaps having a photo of your baby in a sports outfit? Cute as can be and wonderful memories as he grows. These could be hung, along with other decor items that coordinate with the pictures. For instance a baseball glove, hat, or ball. Maybe even a jersey of a favorite team or other memorabilia.

Planes, Trains and Car Decor

hanging model plane

No matter the age, it’s a “Guy Thing”. Planes, trains, or cars are one surefire theme for a boy. Toy model trains or cars can be displayed on shelves that you’ve hung or a colorful model airplane can be strung to hang above the crib, high enough to be out of baby’s reach. Other safe baby toys can be displayed on his dresser or chest of drawers. These can be hard or soft toys. No “girly” stuff for the little guy. We’ll save the “girly” stuff for another article.

Nature Theme Decor

How about an outdoor look? Perhaps if you are artistic, you can paint a wall mural. If not, look at wallpaper or wall decals as an option. To complement this theme, you could include framed colorful nature pictures, a rustic-looking lamp, and accessories such as cuddly stuffed rabbits or other animals he can interact with. A soft area rug in an “earthy” tone can pull everything together.

Perhaps you will spin off the nature idea to incorporate an animal theme. Which animal catches your attention the most? There could be numerous possibilities including the obvious cats and dogs, bears, birds, African animals such as giraffes or elephants, and many others. These choices could be highlighted in wallpaper, lamps, bedding sets, or rugs.

Alphabet/Numbers

alphabet blocks

How about using the letters of the alphabet and numbers in primary colors? ABC blocks in bright colors on a shelf or hanging on the wall. A rug with large numbers in red, green, blue, and yellow. numbers

Borrowing from pages in alphabet or number books for babies might introduce “A is for apple, B is for ball,” etc. in framed artwork. This theme, complemented by baby decor, might encourage early learning as your child goes from infant to toddler. Let your imagination be your guide as you explore all the possibilities.

Cartoon Characters

Dr Seuss Things

A cartoon theme for the youngster is a very hot item. There’s a plethora of options. What about centering your room decor around a favorite character?

Paint a brightly-colored mural on one wall and then match other items for the room either to the theme or the colors in the mural. Perhaps you can even find a mobile to hang over the crib that goes along with the theme or colors. When the baby is in the crib, he can be entertained by the mural and mobile.

Theme-related accessories might include a lamp with the characters on the base or lampshade, a shelf full of resin models of the characters, or bedding that features them.

Accessories With Baby Decor

Now that you’ve worked through all the choices listed above, it is time to accessorize! Add a splash of color, something that will bring “comfort” to the baby (or you) – look for things that accent what you have already chosen.

Of course, there comes the choice of bedding and the playful combination of colors. This might include a complete bedding set with pillows that are safe for children. Some parents choose to avoid pillows, which does have merit due to the safety hazards of having anything in the crib with an infant.

Other considerations are curtains to match your chosen bedroom colors or theme, and lamps placed safely away from the baby’s curious mind and little hands. If you have a rocker in the room, be sure to choose a theme- or color-coordinated seat cushion that is thick enough to withstand those long nights when you are rocking your baby to sleep!

Next is the choice of super-soft, “fluffy” area rugs that your bundle of joy can play on under your watchful eye. This allows great fun time in an area bigger than his crib.

Your purchase of wall hangings (pictures, art, quilt squares, etc.) can be a wonderful addition to the theme you have chosen.

Also consider self-framed photos of the little one with parent(s), with sisters and brothers and other relatives. These can be hung on the wall mixed in with purchased art. The list, with coordinating styles to match the theme, could be as endless as your imagination.

Thinking of items that hang, we all know babies love movement, color, and music. You just can’t pass up that very special mobile to hang above the crib. The coos, laughter, and smiles will soon follow.

Accessories to your baby decor for boys should include delightful stuffed animals. There are so many varieties, you should be able to easily find something to fit in with the theme you have chosen for the baby’s bedroom. These can be set on top of dressers or placed on wall shelves. If you have several of them, they could also be displayed in a basket near the crib.

What Baby Decor Is Right For Your Youngster?

We have looked at many possibilities for the new addition to your family. So incredible is the variety of choices. Baby decor, accessories and themes rolled into one fantastic, colorful idea.

Wallpaper, paint, nature themes, sports, cartoon decor, and the list goes on and on, left only to your imagination. As you move ahead with your decisions, remember what themes have excited you, not only as a child but even today.

I’m ready to help you today – working together to connect you with great sources. I’ll plug you into the exciting world of baby decor. Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

Baby Crib Furniture: ABC’s of What to Look For

Family with newbornYour baby has been born or is soon due. What a precious moment! With a baby comes what? Love and cuddles from the family, of course. Hugs and kisses. Coos and I love yous.

Eventually however, comes baby furniture. These choices may have preceded or followed the little one’s birth.

Undoubtedly choosing the crib should come first, followed by other nursery selections.

There’s no need to be overly concerned when it comes to making your
buying decisions. Baby crib furniture allows for terrific choices that
come with strict government guidelines.

These rules (which are under strong regulation) will set your mind
at ease. Your child will get the best, safest sleep possible. This
makes your shopping much more worry-free. Please don’t misunderstand. We love our babies. It is natural for us to worry. I will do my best to make you aware of the points to consider when buying baby crib furniture for your little one.

The Crib Should Be Your First Choice

baby crib with bearWe all have babies’ bedrooms that come in different sizes. When the time is right, your crib choice will probably be decided based on the space you have to work with. When that decision is made, you will then determine where to put the other furniture pieces. This too, will be decided by the remainder of space available.

Purchasing online in today’s market is one of the easiest ways to make well-informed decisions when buying baby crib furniture. Receiving merchandise from companies online is quick and easy. Cost-effective solutions are at your finger tips.

Different Baby Cribs At Varied Prices

There are so many choices for baby cribs, from traditional to modern. It’s all here, online, with affordable pricing based on the quality and budget you’re looking for.

Whether it’s economy, mid-priced or high-end, you’ll be pleased with the variety that’s available online. Cribs can range from the low $100 level to the thousands. Let’s take a look at the differences.

Cribs That Are Considered Expensive/High-end

high-end baby cribAlthough a number of expensive/ high-end cribs come from countries outside the United States, some of the finest quality cribs are found in the US. These are crafted and finished by hand.

They can even be manufactured to go along with other furniture in the baby’s room with painted details. You pick a shape or design and it can be done. However, be careful about safety rules.

Cribs That Are Priced In The Mid-range

Parewood baby cribnts love quality cribs which tend to fall in the mid-range pricing options. The products are stronger than economy cribs. They are a little fancier and come in a great selection of wood and painted stains.

The wood itself is heavier, and thicker, which adds to its durability. Because of the overall stronger structure, stability is nothing parents have to worry about. These cribs can often be converted to other sizes as well.

Cribs In The Economy Range

They can be a choice and a must for some budgets, so the quality is still passable. Because these cribs are less expensive, then something has to give. The materials used and how the product is designed creates a less-expensive investment for the manufacturers. The product isn’t nearly as heavy. However, if it’s sturdy, which most are, you’ll be fine.

Is Your Baby’s Crib Safe?

We have enjoyed a cradle over many years but it is used now only as a decorative addition. Built by my wife’s brother, it was perfect for the time. That is no longer the case. Times have changed. Thank heaven.

Strict rules on safety make your purchase and use of a crib much improved for your little ones. You can now feel much more comfortable that your baby will have a great sleeping environment.

I would not recommend using any old or even gently-used crib. This includes extremely attractive antique styles that look so cute and inviting to the eye. That’s a no-no, just like old bassinets. All sorts of parts that were meant for stability and safety could have broken or come off. I don’t imagine you want to see your baby falling out and potentially being severely hurt.

As you are aware, there have been many infant deaths due to unsafe cribs. That’s why the stringent safety rules were put in place for manufacturers and why I recommend to only purchase new.

Lead paint was used on baby furniture in the past and children chewed on these items causing many physical problems. If you are using an old crib that has been painted, you really need to be sure none of the paint is missing. Actually, just don’t use them is my best advice.

You might get thrilled about getting a great deal, price-wise, at a flea market, for a crib. Trust me, it’s not a great deal for your baby.

Drop-side rails are dangerous. If you have a crib with this type of rails, don’t use it. When possible, buy a new crib without them. Regulations have been put in place in the U.S., but some overseas companies still make them. Statistics show over 30 baby deaths were contributed to drop-side rails. This has happened over approximately the last eight to eleven years.

Baby Crib Furniture Coordinates

First you’ve measured the baby room. Then you chose the right crib for the available space. Next comes your decision of coordinating furniture. You will need the convenience of a changing table.chest of drawers

A chest of drawers, and even a dresser, are great additions, especially
if you have the room. If you’re limited on space, you can even purchase
cribs with drawers underneath. Make sure the bottoms of the drawers are very sturdy, not cardboard. A one-quarter inch thick fiberboard could be much sturdier.

Obviously, many parents are considering having more than one child. With this in mind, a quality purchase that can be used by more than one baby can save money in the long run.

Also, a crib that can turn into a daybed as the child gets older affords a great opportunity for longer use. This is a great baby crib furniture option.

The Wonders of Babies and Their Baby Furniture

So, happy parent(s). We’ve chalked up some exciting possibilities for baby crib furniture. After measuring your room, you make your choice. New is better because it is covered (in most cases) with strict safety guidelines.

As discussed, the cribs come in varied price ranges. There is High-End or expensive with all the quality features. Another choice is, of course, quality Mid-Range products, followed by Economy choices.

Whatever your decisions with cribs, safety issues and choosing baby crib coordinating furniture, you and your little one(s) will have many years of quality enjoyment.

As always, if you have questions about the information I’ve shared, or I can help you in making your baby crib furniture choices, please leave me a message below.
