Small in Space, Big in Style

More crib envy here. The p. pod 5 in 1 companion crib from Gro Furniture is both small and smart. It is one of my favorite types of baby furniture to write about here on CityBaby Living, because it is a convertible product. Not only will it grow with you as your child goes from infant to toddler, but then it can become a play space or even a desk. The dimensions 32.38″ x 55.38″ x 37.25″ (DxLxH) will fit nicely in a small space but is slightly larger than the Stokee Sleepi and the Leander 4 in 1 cribs I’ve already written about. … Continue reading
Ok, so I have a 4 year old and I’m still coveting baby items. Look at this new item from one of my favorite brands, Stokke! It’s called the Trip Trap® Newborn Set™ and I am so jealous of parents that will get to use this! I mean look at it! It uses the Tripp Trapp base (which I love) and then there is a baby seat that attaches to it! The beauty of the Tripp Trapp is that the child is right at the table with you – and now you can do this with your baby? It also … Continue reading
I’m really loving the company Bloom right now. They were started by 4 dads who wanted to bring function and form together. And they did. They have a number of products that I’ll be showcasing, but the first is their Bloom Luxo Sleep™ which comes with adjustable sides or not. The size is small, slightly larger than the Stokke and Leaner cribs (mostly in length) coming in at 55.25″W x 29.75″D x 36.25″H. As with the Stokke and Leander, the Luxo also grows with your child from age 0 to age 5. While the Luxo is a bit larger, it does come with a smaller price … Continue reading
I’ve seen this Leander 4-in-1 Convertible Crib from Tulip in a couple of store, and it is beautiful. The curvy lines are lovely. And it’s compact. The dimensions (48L x 28D x 38H) are just an inch or two smaller than the Stokke Sleepi. One of the best features is that it converts from a newborn crib to a junior bed and everything you need is included when you purchase it. The ability for one child to grow with it for such a long time really makes this bed. The last thing anyone wants is to keep buying beds! The colors … Continue reading
My daughter’s room is a converted porch measuring 7.5’ by 11’ which should be plenty of room for one small child. It is a very sweet room that is only accessed through our bedroom. It also comes with 6 windows, 2 doors, a radiator and a built in window seat. There is no wall that doesn’t have some design challenge and there was no way a huge crib would fit. We also were not interested in the design of these cribs. This was 4.5 years ago and the options were slim. When I started to research smaller cribs, there wasn’t much … Continue reading
