INDEED this is not obvious to decide before welcoming baby if we would need a crib or not... On top of offering a sleeping place as cosy as your warm belly used to be, it depends also on your willingness to have your baby in the "parental" bedroom for few weeks. You will be the only one to feel what is best for you. Reassuring and practical to get baby close (especially if you breast-feed), or more convenient for your beauty sleep and independance (as a sleeping baby can be really noisy).
Should you decide to get one, here is a selection of design and smart cribs.
Quax proposes the Marie crib with storage units below.
Moulin Roty proposes a rocking crib, Ardoise, ideal to help baby fall asleep.
Mobile cribs are well-designed. Bloom understands well parents living in cities with tiny apartments. Alma mini is a tiny crib which can be foldaway. Its wheels are smart: you will experience situations in which you want to remain close to your baby (or the other way around) while you might need to move from one room to the other in your flat.
Ecological cribs, such as cardboard cribs proposed by Kids Gallery, are easy to install and super light. Another plus: It is as high as your bed.
Hanging cribs, such as the Leander one, help rock baby slightly. It also enables to keep space on the floor, should you hang it directly on the ceiling or on its framework.
