5 Out-Of-The-Box Baby Cribs You Need To See

Add some character to the nursery with one of these not-so-typical cribs

In many ways, the crib is the centerpiece of the nursery. Little ones spend a lot of time sleeping, with newborns sleeping up to 18 hours a day and babies and toddlers up to 2 years needing up to 14 hours per day. Your babe is going to get out of his or her crib!

And with mom and dad frequenting the nursery to change diapers, retrieve toys and put baby to sleep, a crib that fits your preferred style and how much space you have is ideal. We wanted to spice things up a bit, so we rounded up 5 of our favourite unique cribs.

These choices stray from the conventional crib prototype and are sure to add personality to the nursery with their design elements that are anything but ordinary.

Go Circular

This attractive solid oak crib is timeless with its clean lines and high resistance (and low-VOC) finish (available in elephant grey or white). It is made in Canada (woot!) and meets all Canadian and USA safety standards. Bonus: It converts into a desk for tots to use after they’ve outgrown the crib.

From The Ceiling

This crib alternative is perfect for those first few months when you may want to have your little one by your bedside or for those who are pressed for space. Suitable for babies up to 19.8 lbs (usually between 4 and 9 months old), this cradle can be suspended indoors (with additional mounting options, such as a wooden tripod for those who do not wish to drill into their ceiling, available on their website).

We like that the company focuses on making their product as eco-friendly as possible, and we’re sure that baby will love being lulled to sleep by the gentle rocking motion of their new cradle.

A Modern Take

We love this modern and oh-so-stylish rounded crib. Its clear sides make it easy for you to check up on baby while allowing your little one to observe what’s going on outside of the crib. As your child grows, the sides can be removed to transform the pod into a super sleek and cool junior bed.

Something With A Bit Of Whimsy

This handmade crib is a gorgeous addition to any nursery, with its night sky-inspired design. The bottom of the bed can be placed at a higher height until baby is 6 months old, and then adjusted to a lowered height to accommodate a moving baby up until 4 years old.

Crème Anglaise Lit Lune, approximately $1352

Two-In-One Crib

Now this is what I’d like to call a superbed—with five beds in one, this crib has much more to it than what meets the eye. It starts off as a baby crib, and as your little one grows, so does the bed—all the way up to a junior size bed. All pieces needed for the conversions are included, so there’s no need to invest in another bed until those teenage years hit.

Leander Crib 5-in-1 System, $1299
