Ahh, baby sleep. Arguably the most discussed topic among new parents, as evidenced by the thousands of articles and resources to read and of course, products that promise to help your newborn sleep better from day one. While there’s no silver bullet solution, there are many things you can do to set your little one up for success - blackout shades, white noise, and cozy swaddles, to name a few. But where they sleep is just as important, and there’s nothing better than a safe, good quality crib. That’s where Nestig comes in, far surpassing other cribs on the market.
Safety At The Forefront, Always
It’s impossible to talk about sleep without first mentioning safety. Truly, nothing else matters until we know baby is safe. I remember the day we moved our daughter out of our room and into her nursery. I needed to know that I did everything I could to make her sleeping environment as safe as possible. One thing I love about Nestig is its intense focus on safety - every crib the brand sells meets CPSC and ASTM safety standards and is tested and certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturing Association. This is extra comforting in those nerve-wrecking early days when baby is so little, and throughout toddlerhood when they get a bit more mobile.
From The Sweet Newborn Days To The Crazy Toddler Years
All of Nestig’s cribs are designed to grow and change with baby, meaning you can use them from day one to day 2,000 and beyond. Let’s start with the first configuration, the mini-crib, which serves as a cozy bassinet for even the tiniest of babies. It was the perfect size for my 5 lb, 11 oz peanut. Rolling, lockable wheels make it super easy to move from room to room, so you can keep your baby safely with you wherever you are in the house. When your little gets a bit bigger, easily adjust to the full-size crib, which has three height levels making it easier to get baby out...and keep baby in. Last but not least, as your toddler starts climbing (a day I am truly dreading!), convert your crib to a bigger bed that’s safe for them to get in and out of on their own. A conversion kit is included, making it that much easier and saving you quite a bit of money along the way (most Nestig toddler beds work until your child hits 50 lbs, giving you great bang for your buck).
Sleek Designs That Turn Any Nursery Into A Stylish Haven
Nestig’s website appropriately reads, “We’re bringing the magic and imagination of childhood to life in the nursery,” a slogan that carries throughout their line of four nature-inspired crib designs. The Wave Crib, pictured here, is my personal favorite with its organic shape and ocean-like curvature. Its natural, Brazilian wood makes it neutral enough to fit with any nursery design, yet stylish enough to give the room a playful and whimsical feel. A perfect balance for the modern parent with a great eye but little time to design the perfect nursery.
Made With Kindness
When making purchases, it’s important to me that I’m supporting businesses that care about people and the environment we live in. I love that Nestig is not only committed to fair labor practices and environmental impact -- the brand has also elevated these important values across all aspects of its business. All cribs are made from sustainably-sourced materials and Nestig’s “no-inventory model” means that it makes just the right amount of product for families who purchase cribs (instead of overproducing and creating a ton of waste). My favorite Wave Crib is produced by a family-run manufacturer in Southern Brazil, where quality of craftsmanship is top-notch and employees are involved in the creative design process. I’m in a period of life where I’m constantly buying so much stuff for my kids, and it feels really good to support brands that are doing good in the world.
