Acrylic Cribs From Day One
You may remember the cribs your baby first slept in at the hospital or birthing center you delivered in. It probably was made of clear acrylic and was high enough so that you didn’t have to bend over far or struggle to place your baby to sleep soundly.
The reason the hospitals and birthing centers provide acrylic cribs are due to their unique ability to provide maximum visibility to your precious new baby while eliminating some of the undesirable effects of say, a painted, slatted crib (ie: your baby might chew the bars and get paint in his or her mouth, will have less visibility to you and wake up crying more often, etc.).
Btw, if you haven’t created your baby registry yet, go ahead and register for yours now. It will make all of the web searches you are doing much more productive.
Amazon and Target are the best baby registries you can use, the major difference between them being that Amazon has a wider selection with returns up to 90 days and Target has less selection (but a universal registry option) and allows in store returns for a full year.

Nursery Works Vetro Crib
Nursery Works Vetro Crib in “Clear”, Amazon
Say hello to the Nursery Works Vetro Crib. It is carefully and thoughtfully constructed from 100% recyclable, non-toxic acrylic and height adjusts to three perfectly placed levels for your growing newborn.
They are handmade, limited edition, specially numbered, and exceed both US and Canadian safety standards.
One of the most noted features of this bed, other than it’s incredulous price tag, is that parents report using it baby after baby and finding that the quality and craftsmanship doesn’t fade.
Owners of the Vetro Crib report their babies sleep more soundly, benefitted by the crib’s unobstructed views, as opposed to slat cribs, for instance, that have a more “jailed” feeling about their design. The parents sleep better too because from any angle they can see the position of their newborn.
For those who are as design focused as they are function-focused, you will be delighted to know the clear acrylic will help make your nursery look bigger. Double bonus, you won’t have to worry about seeing teeth marks all over the rails like you often do with wooden cribs, though not usually until after a year or so.
For those of you who love the Vetro Crib, but want to darken the baby’s sleeping area a bit and lean a little more mysterious stylistically, you can also purchase this in “Shadow“.
Nursery Works Vetro Crib in “Shadow”, Amazon
Also worth a mention is that this crib is reported to be around 300 pounds so you probably won’t be moving it around very much. Obviously, if you can afford this crib, then you can also probably afford to forklift it around the nursery at your leisure. Amazon does offer an “Expert Assembly” option for this item.
Nursery Works Luma Crib

The Luma Crib by Nursery Works is another stunning, nursery redefining crib. It is made with non-toxic acrylic and contrasting electro-plated steel in a rose gold tone. Each crib is a specially numbered limited edition, an art object in and of itself.
The Luma Crib exceeds US and Canadian safety standards and has 4 adjustable heights for the crib mattress (may we suggest The Newton breathable crib mattress?).
Another great feature of the Luma crib is that when your baby has grown out of the crib stage, it is easily converted to a toddler bed with the additional purchase of the toddler bed rail.

With 4 adjustable height positions for the crib mattress you will always find the perfect height for your baby until he or she grows out the crib stages. After that you will be pleased to know it will easily convert to a toddler bed (conversion kit sold separately).
