The 7 Best Home Cribs – Guidebook

Cribs not only allow your child to sleep soundly, but also give them a safe and cozy place to retreat. What beds are better for this than home cribs?!

Home Crib Checklist

Use
  • A house crib replaces the regular bed. It has a sturdy frame that gives the bed the shape of a house. Your child can use it not only for sleeping, but also as a retreat or for playing.
Size
  • There are two common standard sizes.
  • A house crib with a mattress of 70 x 140 cm is suitable for smaller children up to 5 years old. For children from elementary school age, a mattress with a size of 90 x 200 cm is recommended. It always depends on the individual growth of your child.
  • The permissible weight with which the larger bed can be loaded is usually 140 to 150 kg.
  • Some manufacturers offer different intermediate sizes.
  • A mattress is not always included in the delivery.
  • The slatted frame should have some distance to the floor so that the mattress is well ventilated.
Accessories
  • Some children’s beds offer design freedom. Especially the shape of the house offers your child special possibilities.
  • Often the beds are equipped with additional storage space for pillows and blankets.
  • A slide and a ladder can be mounted on beds with a high frame.
  • A canopy bed fabric or a string of lights can be attached to the roof bars.
  • Illustrated assembly instructions make it easy for you to assemble the bed.
Accessories
  • Home cribs are usually made of wood. The paints and varnishes used must be non-toxic. The material should make a high-quality and stable impression.
  • Rounded corners and edges are also important.
  • A fall-out guard that looks like a fence will keep your child from accidentally rolling out of the bed.
  • The grille can be mounted on the left or right side of the bed.
  • There should be a small opening so that your child can climb in independently.
  • For older children, you can omit the fall-out protection.
  • When buying a home crib, look for the GS mark for tested safety.
  • Sustainably produced wood is FSC-certified or bears the “Blue Angel” seal of approval.
