The modern parent: Searching for the coolest cribs

July 3, 2009 |  1:19 pm


We've received a few comments about Barbara Thornburg's recent post on the Alma crib. One reader felt the slots were too big, making the crib potentially dangerous, and another worried the crib was so small there was no room for baby. All this made me curious: What is the coolest-looking crib for the money? (That one above, designed by David Netto, sells for $2,750.) My 14-month-old sleeps in the cute, modern, but not inexpensive Nurseryworks Loom Crib. (It was our big nursery splurge.) I love it but will admit we did find his little leg caught between two of the bars one morning, and I often wonder if I should have just gone with the $99 basic Ikea metal crib. It's not cute, but it sure is cheap, and Jonah doesn't care anyway.

What crib did you choose and why? If you are a crib maker or seller, we're going to ask you -- politely -- to sit this one out.
