Mini cribs are a great option for new and expectant parents expanding their family within a limited space. They provide the convenience of a standard-sized crib without taking up valuable square footage. Added bonus — they’re very easy to move around the house since most include optional casters.
Mini cribs can be used until baby is approximately 12 months old—but that time period could be extended, depending on the length of your baby. They’re also a fabulous solution for grandparents that care for their infant grandchildren, since they’re incredibly easy to store when not in use.
