Budget Baby Cribs - Space-Saving Storage at a Bargain Price
For the expectant parent, budget baby cribs, changing tables, and other nursery furniture can be a fantastic option. You want a charming and adorable nursery to welcome your new arrival, but with budget constraints and a desire to provide for baby's future, the price of each nursery item is must be carefully considered. With a little bit of research, you can find beautiful bargain price baby furniture that is sturdy and functional at a fraction of the cost of designer baby furnishings.
The Chelsea 4-in-1 convertible crib by Storkcraft is a favorite choice for many parents-to-be. This crib provides a sweet and cozy sleeping environment for your newborn and grows right along with him, with easy conversion to toddler bed, day bed, and full-size bed with headboard. As a bonus, the real wood crib comes with a trundle drawer that rolls away underneath for extra storage. An adjustable mattress and one-hand drop side make for easy handling at bed time.
The Chelsea crib comes in a number of attractive wood finishes, as well as black, so it is perfect for any decorative scheme - from traditional to modern and anywhere else your imagination takes you. The crib conforms to US safety standards for infant furniture and fits a standard size crib mattress.
As with most bargain price baby furniture, this crib must be assembled. The good news is that the instructions are permanently attached (on the mattress support, out of sight) and easy to follow. It only takes about 1/2 hour to put it together, and the crib really does look as beautiful as its picture.
Parents often find this crib convenient for a small nursery or an apartment space, since the roll-away storage drawer allows for extra floor space in baby's room. Storkcraft also offers a variety of coordinating nursery furniture, from changing tables and dressers to gliders, all at very reasonable prices.
The crib mattress, of course, is not included, but consider this a bonus. Cribs that are sold with the mattress typically include a conventional baby mattress manufactured from synthetic materials. Most of us take this for granted - if the mattress fits the crib and conforms to safety standards, it should be adequate.
Actually, this is far from the truth. Synthetic baby mattress contain hundreds of harmful chemicals which have been proven to leech into your baby's system as she sleeps. These toxins are known to cause health problems ranging from respiratory issues to cancer, and they have been banned in some countries for use in baby products altogether.
On the other hand, an organic mattress contains only natural materials such as wood, wool, and organic cotton to keep your baby dry and comfortable during the 16 or so hours a day she spends sleeping. While an organic mattres costs a bit more, it is well worth the price when your baby's health is at stake. And with the money you save purchasing a budget baby crib, you will be able to afford the extra cost.
