What is the point of a mini crib?

Can a newborn sleep in a mini crib?

Both cribs and bassinets can be safe sleep choices for a newborn. However, they have several important differences. The most obvious one is size — a crib takes up a lot more space than a bassinet, so a bassinet can be easier in a smaller house. Their smaller size also makes bassinets more portable.

Can I use regular crib sheets on a mini crib?

Luckily, if you only have standard-sized bedding, you can convert it to fit your mini-crib. Center the fitted sheet on top of the crib mattress while the mattress is in the crib. Fold each short end of the fitted sheet over the end of the mattress and tuck the sheet under each end of the mattress.

Is a mini crib a good idea?

A mini crib can be a very good idea, but it depends on your needs. If you have a very small home, and the baby’s nursery is small, a mini crib will be useful to start off with. It is also useful if the baby has to share a room with older siblings, or if you want to keep him in your room with you.
