Choosing a Small
"It allows a baby to sleep right next to the parents"
By : Kapriz
Some families forgo the traditional size crib for their baby, at least for the first six or so
months of the baby's life. There are many good reasons for this. If you want to have your baby close to you without
worrying about an accident happening, or perhaps do not have a lot of room, you can get a small baby crib. There
are all types of cribs to suit your needs, look around to see which one you think will be best for your family and
the most useful in your situation.
One type of small baby crib is the Arms Reach Co-Sleeper. This small bed allows a baby to sleep right next to the
parents without the danger of the baby sleeping in the bed with Mom and Dad. This crib attaches right to the side
of the bed so baby is right there within reach of either parent but the baby has their own safe and secure sleeping
space. There is no danger of a parent rolling over on the baby. Many moms like it if they can simply reach over and
get baby when he or she wakes, without having to walk through the house in the dark. Baby is right there to watch
and see if all is okay.
Another type of small baby crib is the bassinet. This is something that is also called a cradle. It can also stay right next to the
parental bed but is not attached to it like the Co-Sleeper. These often have settings so that they can rock the
baby. As with the other types of small cribs, baby cannot stay in this forever but it is very convenient for
when baby wakes often at night to eat. It is also something that can be moved from room to room as needed. These
are a bit different than they were when you were a baby so look around to see what you like before you buy.
Some parents prefer to buy a small baby crib for the nursery and then buy a larger one later. These are built just
as the larger cribs. They are great as sleeping spaces when you want to have baby in their own bed but do not have
a lot of room. They may not be as safe as long as a regular size crib may be, but they are great when they are all
you have room for or when you want your baby in a toddler bed sooner than later. These come in the same great
styles and colors as full size cribs, so have a look around for your favorite.
The only problem with some types of smaller cribs is that the sheets and bedding can be harder to come by when
shopping. Before you buy any small baby crib, make sure you check out what type of sheets and other accessories you
are going to need and how easy they are to find. Luckily, you can find almost any size of sheet for any type of
crib if you shop online, which may not be the case if you only shop locally. See if you can find the styles you
like in the sizes that you need and buy the crib that fits your lifestyle and home the best.
