We bought this crib in the natural wood for our baby daughter, after seeing it on display in our local pram centre. When we got it home and took it out of the box, we thought that there had been some mistake, as the design was ever so slightly different and the quality feel which we had admired in the shop wasn't the same. On return to the shop we were told we had been given the correct product, but that the manufacturer had changed it slightly. We decided to take the display model. This may simply have been a mistake by the shop staff which they simply didn't want to admit to!
I loved this crib as soon as we got it home. It is a beautiful design and the finish of the wood was extremely good. Amazingly our up all night baby suddenly slept! She had previously been sleeping in a moses basket, and I think she perhaps liked the fact she could now see Mum and Dad through the bars!
The rocking feature of this crib was really useful when our little girl would wake a little and she could be rocked gently until she fell back to sleep. She is now nearly six months and still using this, but in the stationery position. I wasn't keen on the way the crib locks into place, there are two long metal rods which hold it in position but they don't look very nice. Although I would double check this in your local shop, due to the fact we took the display model and I wasn't entirely convinced we were given all the correct pieces!
This beautiful crib will stand gracefully in your new nursery or your own bedroom. Making a delightful first bed for a new born baby.
