How have the crib designs evolved?
Baby crib is generally a child’s first bed, and has an interesting history to it. Early baby cribs were small swinging or rocking beds that were known as cradle. Once the baby outgrew the cradle, he or she was shifted to a larger trundle bed. A trundle bed could easily slide under the parents’ bed to save on space.
Then, during 1800’s a baby crib was designed to meet a baby’s needs. These cribs were passed passed on from one generation to next within the family. Their construction was solid and they were made from durable wood. Though the basic shape of the crib has not undergone much of change, yet there have been ongoing improvements in the design and safety standards.
These days’ parents are looking for new designs, features and functionality and are ready to make an investment. This gave impetus to the crib industry to innovate and come with different models of crib.
Modern urbanites want to give their newborn a cosmopolitan lifestyle. They try to find a designer baby crib to match with the theme of the nursery. These contemporary baby cribs are available in various modern and stylistic preferences. Some of the modern forms include platform cribs, corner cribs and sleek chrome or metal baby cribs. In addition, round cribs made of wood are equally popular designer baby cribs.
All in all, a baby crib that serves functionality, safety and aesthetic needs at the same time is most sought after. Whether it is an antique pattern with modern facilities or the contemporary one to perfectly match the theme, what matters is the satisfaction that a parent looks for – by all means.
