Rectangular cribs have long been a staple in every baby’s nursery. Now, all of that is changing thanks to the innovative and unique design of the new round crib!
Round cribs have been touted as being safer than traditional rectangular cribs as they have no sharp corners, no discernible joints and are said to be of a greater quality construction. They offer some distinct advantages over regular cribs in that:
* They are space-saving, allowing the crib to be in a corner, by your bed, or wherever you have a small bit of space.
* They allow your baby to have a 360-degree view of the world around them
* They allow you to be able to see your baby wherever you happen to be at in your room
* Babies tend to like to “creep” along the edges of their crib, and a round crib is perfect for this! No corners means they can creep all they want!
One of the disadvantages of buying a round crib is the price. They are definitely more expensive than a traditional rectangular-shaped crib, but some can justify the purchase price knowing they are buying a unique piece of nursery furniture that not many people will have.
Also, as previously stated, these cribs do tend to be better constructed and safer for baby. To some, it is worth the extra cost.
Some accessories for the round crib include a canopy which is excellent for hanging a musical mobile or plastic links for baby to play with and look at.
Finding bedding for a round crib used to be a real problem as not many manufacturers made round sheets and blankets, but now that they’re becoming more popular and mainstream, you can find round crib bedding in many stores as well as online retailers.
The selection is vast and you have as many choices in round baby bedding as you do with traditional crib bedding now!
If what you’re looking for in nursery furniture for your baby is unique, quality-constructed furniture, I would highly recommend a round crib. Interesting in design and aesthetically pleasing to the eye, it will be a piece of furniture to be treasured for generations to come.
