Other Features of Evolur Santa Fe
While you plan to buy a convertible baby crib, you must consider some factors like crib dimensions, safety certificate, mattress and mattress position issues and last not least, other parents’ recommendations.
But if you are a short mom, let’s say less than 4’8”, you MUST consider the crib height first. So let’s talk about them.
For short mom, you can choose a standard size convertible crib, mini crib, a portable crib and so on. We will talk about 3 standard cribs and a mini crib here in detail.
2. Crib Height
First thing first. The height of almost any standard lower profile crib or mini crib is 35 inches. With that height, any short moms having a height of even less than 4’8” should feel comfortable. In fact, there is no crib having a height of fewer than 35 inches.
We researched almost all standard low cribs for short moms available for sale in 2020. The minimum height we found is 35 inches. Only Babyletto which is originally owned by Million Dollar Baby company has such low profile cribs.
Just before finally choose your crib, we recommend you to consider some other pretty important factors to consider. Make sure any cribs for short moms, meet these factors too.
Should You Use Drop Side?
NO! Before 2010, using drop-sides was common to easy put in or put out the baby. In fact, even nowadays, using drop-sides is always tempting to many moms especially to short moms.
But to avoid mysterious and horrible SIDS, U.S. CPSC banned using drop-sides in 2010. From then, no crib manufacturers make cribs with drop sides. We don’t have to remember you that the safety of your baby comes first than your tiny comfort, right?
Mattress & Adjustable Mattress Positions
You can fit any standard-size crib mattress with our recommended low-profile cribs except the mini crib for short moms. A lot of experienced moms verified that.
You can use rounded corners or square cut mattresses of any brand like Moonlit Slumber or Sealy Soybean Foam mattress.
The number of mattresses position in the crib is a vital issue for short moms. The best crib for short moms should have as many adjustable mattress positions as possible. Normally, there are 3 to 4 adjustable mattress height positions in any standard crib.
So, how different adjustable mattress height positions help short moms?
For petite women, mattress position plays a vital role to easily pick up or put in the baby without any difficulties. All you have to do just set the mattress to the upper position. That way, the height of the crib will be much lower for you.
But there is a catch…
You must notice carefully whether your baby can climb out of the crib. If so, set the mattress at the lowest level. Normally that happens when your baby can move or stand up.
So, even you set the mattress at the lowest level then, the baby can reach out to you and you can easily pick her up.
Take Safety Issues Seriously
All product that uses paint or glue or whatever chemicals do harm in many ways including polluting the indoor air.
Besides, it is obvious that your baby will chew the rails of the crib. Fatal chemicals will definitely harm the baby.
But that’s not all…
There has to be a perfect distance between the slats of the crib. The maximum allowable distance in such case is 2 & ⅜ inches.
Anything more than that will definitely be hazardous for your baby. How? Hands or legs of your baby may be stuck in such spaces between the slats.
Actually, you should not worry about that. There are some government agencies out there who ensure safety from these Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Whenever you see a crib is GREENGUARD Gold Certified, rest assured, the crib has very low acceptable emissions of such VOCs into the indoor air.
All our recommended low cribs for short parents have non-toxic finishes and have to go through a multi-step painting process.
That’s the reason all our recommended cribs for short moms 2020 meet ASTM International and U.S. CPSC safety standards. Watch the video to learn how Babyletto ensures crib safety.
Removable legs or wheels
Having removable legs or wheels in the crib is an added advantage for short moms. Just remove those legs or wheels, the height of the crib will be almost lower by 4 to 5 inches. Just for your information, Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 convertible crib has removable legs!
Weight Of The Crib
You need to consider the weight of the lower profile cribs too. For easy vacuum cleaning or for whatever reasons, you may need to move the crib from time to time.
That time weight of the crib will be a ‘biggie’ for you. Having a very sturdy yet lightweight crib in such a situation is a blessing.
Among our recommended 3 cribs for short moms, Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 convertible crib has a weight of only 56.5 pounds for the white color.
Also, Babyletto Modo 3-in-1 convertible crib has a weight of only 54 pounds in multiple colors like white, espresso, and white mix colors, and Dream On Me 4 in 1 Aden Convertible Mini Crib has a weight of only 20 pounds!
Is The Toddler Rail Free?
As you know, when you convert the crib into a toddler bed, having a toddler rail is a must, right? And any quality toddler rail alone can cost you $70 to $80! So, how about a free toddler bed rail? Sounds great?
Yep, with Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 convertible crib and Babyletto Modo 3-in-1 convertible crib, you can get a toddler bed rail completely free to make it a complete toddler bed!
You should not use a too old crib for your new baby. Over the passage of time, the distance between the slats get bigger, hence the crib becomes dangerous for your baby. Besides too old crib lost sturdiness.
But what if you already bought a crib recently that has a height of way more than 35 inches? You have two options available to you.
Either you can return it to the company if you can or you can use a stepper tool. Using a stepper tool is really a great crib solution for short moms.
Any stepper tool something like Tone Fitness Aerobic Stepper will give you 4 to 6 inches in height. That way, you can use your existing crib much more comfortably. You need to use the stepper stool carefully though.
There is a chance you may slip or fall from the stool if you can’t maintain your body balance properly. Alternatively, you can get a step stool for your toddler to easily get up to the toddler bed for reaching anywhere where she needs 3 to 4 inches height boost.
