In a tight space, one of the first things to go is the standard-sized crib. Some parents put their newborn to sleep in a bassinet. But within a couple of months, they’ll outgrow a bassinet. When that happens (or from the very beginning), opt for a mini crib. At 24 inches wide and 38 inches long, the mini crib is smaller than a standard-sized crib and is more space-economical. Plus, the Newton Baby breathable Crib Mattress is available in both standard and mini sizes, so you don’t have to sacrifice safety!
If you have a small baby nursery to work with, you may want to consider a mini crib or a corner crib instead of a regular rectangular one. Both of these options save a considerable amount of space. On the other hand, if you have a large nursery room, a round crib placed in the center can be more interesting than a standard crib against the wall.
Baby's intended sleep location is a big factor in determining which crib is right for you. If you want baby to sleep in your room you may want to consider a small baby bed. Your options include a bassinet, moses basket or cradle, all of which can be used until baby is four months old. Alternatively there are longer-term options such as the Amby bed or the co-sleeper (bedside crib).
