Little Missy is definitely enjoying all the new space and the ability to see the room through the rails. She likes to peek at mama during the night and mama likes to peek at her.
The crib we bought is identical to the one my two year old toddler still sleeps in, which is a Franklin and Ben Liberty 3-in-1 Convertible Crib. I always liked the classic look of spindle cribs and this white one is dainty, yet sturdy and does not overwhelm the room. The Liberty Crib is made of solid American poplar, which is in the category of hardwoods, though it's one of the "softer" hardwoods. I appreciate that a toddler rail is included with the crib. A lot of other brands sell it separately. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this crib for the price.
For baby's comfort, I covered the mattress with an organic quilted mattress pad, by American Baby Company, also purchased on Amazon.
The little pillow in the picture is there to help with flat-head, which all my babies seem to develop. This time I was proactive and got the pillow early one. There are benefits to being the youngest in the family. Parents already had a chance to experiment on your older siblings and have just a little more figured out.
Now if I can only get Little Missy to sleep through the night in her new abode, well, that would be just dandy!
