My son loved this crib, it was great for rocking him to sleep in the early stages. He’s now 3 months old and has grown out of it unfortunately but it’s lovely and comfortable also great for smaller rooms
This crib is amazing it worked wonders for my newborn until he was 5 and a half months old .. it's a great size last longer then a Moses basket. Can also be made to stay still with the flip of a break.
Great crib. I love the fact that i can settle my baby without getting of the bed at night. Easy to swing as much as it is needed. Could be bit wider as my baby started to put hands in between sticks at age of 2 months. Owerral i am very happy
This is a fantastic little crib, my little girl loves it and it’s the only other place she’ll settle apart from on me!
The only thing that bugs me is that it easily drops out of the swing lock, but my partner tightened the sides up to stop this happening so it’s easily fixed
This crib was loaned to me from a friend and it's perfect. Easy to put together and take apart as my son has now outgrown it. The only minor issue is the noise it makes for swinging but as my son doesn't require settling off he does it himself we locked the swing function and it's no problem.
Rocks baby to sleep, and larger than a Moses basket.
Only issue is it’s a square mattress so not as easy to get hold of the sheets
Bought this instead of a Moses basket and it looks so much better than a Moses basket with stand. Very well built and looks the part. Easy to build up as well which is a bonus. Baby lasted in it till 8 months
Bought this after my daughter became to big for her Moses basket but was still to small for a big cot. I loved this crib, the gliding motion was great, I could easily rock her back to sleep if she woke in the night. I loved the size of it as well, my daughter was in it for a long while before going into a larger cot.
<p>We bought this swinging crib as our son really enjoyed the rocking motion go get him to sleep so bought a crib that could swing for our daughter and haven't regretted it, the crib is a good size so will grow with out daughter, we have put a <a href="https://www.consobaby.co.uk/cocoonababy-sleep-positioner-red-castle.html">cocoonababy</a> inside the crib which helps her sleep and she is very snug, the swinging motion is gentle and helps our daughter drop off especially after her night feeds.<br />This has been a great purchase and we will use it for months, unlike a Moses basket which babies can outgrow quickly.</p>
I’ve used this for both my daughter (now 3) and have just started using it on my son (12 weeks). It’s a lovely crib and rocks so easily. The only downside is mine creaks slightly if you slightly lean on the side!
Has a gentle rocking motion, looks stylish, easy to put together
Bit big, takes up a lot of room in the bedroom
We bought this for my daughter when she was a newborn and she absolutely loved it. The rocking motion was a lifesaver when she was restless and teething and so gentle it didn’t wake her up at all. Loved it! It’s quite large so you need a large room to fit it in and I didn’t put my daughter in it until she was a couple of months old as she seemed so tiny in it but once she grew a little she was happy and comfortable in it. It’s a beautiful bit of furniture and definitely looks like it’ll last many years to come!
Used this for all 3 of my children an would never have known I'd had it that long stil looked fantastic ,baby slept fantastic in it and I Like the gliding function so when half asleep you can gently rock it if baby is slightly unsettled .
I have just bought this for my expecting baby and it looks great . I love how it glides smoothly . It's small and snug for a new born but Will have to get a bigger one at about 6 months I would say. It fits lovely next to my bed and is very light to move around .. highly recommend this product.
Fab crib, looks lovely and sturdy too. It's great to rock little one back to sleep of he wakes in the night, glides side to side which I found nicer then one that rocks, seems smoother. The design is nice and clean and wont date, so it is perfect for future use. The only downside to this product is the catch you put on the crib to stop it moving is quite stiff and it's slightly marked the wood where its caught coming off. Also my partner found it tricky to put together, found that the fittings didn't match ir fit properly, so had to slightly adjust.
Allows you to rock the baby to sleep in their crib
Child outgrows it quite quickly
This was amazing for us, as it meant I could put my son down awake and then rock him to sleep, so he didn't fall asleep on my. The only downside was that it would move if he kicked hard, particularly as he got bigger, and he was too big for it after about eight months.
My little girl wouldn’t sleep in a Moses and was far to tiny for a cot, I was going to loose hope before I got this product she grew out of it at 5 months (18lbs) she just needed more space to spend her arms out!
Bought this crib for my second baby. We'd previously had a swinging crib but baby used to roll around in it. The gliding function is far superior keeping baby flat whether they need a gentle rock or a more vigorous motion. Comes in really handy as my son always used to wake up and cry as he was being put down but a gentle rock would sooth him straight back off to sleep.
It's a great size. A new born doesn't look lost in it but it lasts much longer than a moses basket. My son still fits in it at 8 months old, allowing him to stay in the room with me up to and beyond the recommended 6month minimum which is great peace of mind.
Crib sheets are a little harder to find but Mothercare do sell them as well as some online stores.
