finding the best crib for twins reviews

You have twins on the way, and you have mixed feelings about raising twins. You’ve probably considered getting matching clothes, redecorating the nursery and have every other baby accessories ready.

There is one thing you need to place more focus on, their sleeping arrangement. You need to look for the best crib for twins. At first glance, there are many cribs to choose from yet; you still have to pick one.

The choice may also get hard when you have to consider the available space. So, you may want to find out if two cribs will fit in the room or if your babies will sleep in one crib.

Your babies can sleep in one crib during their first months, but as they grow, you’ll need alternatives. Buying two separate cribs means going for the smaller cribs that fit in the room.

Using one crib may become a challenge once they start moving and rolling around. The risk of suffocation and overheating also increases. But, before they are all active, one crib will do.

But, even with all these challenges, what do you look for when buying cribs for twins?

Features to Look for When Buying Crib for Twins

  • Type of Crib
    Will you get a standard, a convertible or a portable baby crib for twins? The type of crib largely depends on your lifestyle, budget, space, need to travel and your style. If getting a foldable crib, get one with lockable casters.
  • Size of The Room
    Is there enough room in the nursery or your room for two cribs? Will space allow for ideal positioning of the cribs? To save space when using two cribs, put them in an L-shape against the wall.
    If you don’t have a nursery, make sure that the crib will fit in your room well. You should also keep in mind the size of the crib before buying the crib. For the right size of the crib, get the room’s measurements before buying.
  • Convertibility
    This is a feature that is almost second nature to cribs for twins. A crib that converts into a toddler bed and a twin bed is ideal for twins. Raising twins is expensive, and you have to save money. For savings, get a convertible crib that will last for your baby’s first years.
  • Sturdiness
    The crib shouldn’t shake or appear flimsy. The safety of your babies is the most important factor to consider. Therefore, the crib shouldn’t have a flimsy construction design that can fall apart.
  • Safety
    Besides sturdiness, the crib should be free from toxic chemicals like lead, latex, phthalates or PVC. The finish on the crib should also be non-toxic. The safest cribs have ASTM, JPMA, or CPSC certification.
  • Slat’s Spacing
    These cribs should have slats spaced closely for safety. You don’t want a crib whose slats will catch your babies’ legs, heads or their little arms, do you?
  • Adjustable Mattress Positions
    Babies grow tall fast, and after a few weeks, you’ll notice that your kids can turn and they can reach the edge of the crib. For this reason, they usually feature two, three or four mattress adjustment positions.
    The first position is the highest, and as your babies grow, you can adjust the mattress lower creating more space on top. This adjustment keeps babies safe, and it prevents them from falling out of climbing out as toddlers.
