A couple weeks ago I solicited some ideas, advice and thoughts on truly essential baby products (here is the post). Today kicks off the first of a series of ten posts about essential baby products for those of us who live in
Stokke makes a unique, oval-shaped mini crib. It grows with the baby by adding wooden pieces to lengthen the sides ($725 - $1,000).
DaVinci makes four styles of mini cribs (Kalani below) each less than 40" in length (versus standard cribs that are closer to 55"). The prices range from $165-$199 (at BabyEarth.com).
Bloom makes an entire set of euro (aka mini) furniture for a small nursery. The crib below sells for $400, but check Amazon.com because I found it listed for as low as $360.
Bassinet (with frame)
Eddie Bauer makes this reasonably priced (approximately $130), highly rated bassinet. It can gently rock your baby to sleep or be locked into place.
Monte makes the Ninna-Nanna Bassinet ($395). There are two color combinations in its cool, contemporary shape.
Moses Basket (bassinet without frame)
Serena & Lily makes this canvas basket in six different color combinations, each for $250.
Giggle - This organic Moses Basket sold at Giggle ($230) is made of palm and lined with 100% organic fleece that is filled with hypoallergenic fill.
