If you don’t have a little one yet you probably haven’t given much though to where in your future nursery you would place the crib. If you are pregnant you probably thought about it for a bit, decided and are happy with your decision. That’s what I did, remember this post from way back when I was deciding where to place the cribs. I took into account things like the air vent, the curtains and blinds and how the two cribs looked in the space. What I did not consider was the loud banging of little feet kicking the wall for fifteen minutes or longer every night. Until this started happening about four months ago I never understood why someone would place the crib in the middle of a room, it’s a pretty unrealistic arrangement is most peoples homes.
I particularly like the giant windows on at least two sides in this nursery, that is very conducive for a sleeping baby. And why do cribs need a solid back or sides?
I now understand. If a little one can’t get their tiny feet through the slats of the crib then they can’t kick the wall for fifteen minutes. Mystery solved. Maybe that’s why there are so many new cribs out there like these with solid clear panels.
Too bad the cost of a peaceful evening is around $3000 with these Lucite beauties. While space is probably most to-be parents biggest factor in crib placement, keep in mind that there will be a lot more to keep in mind down the road. And while we probably won’t get a new crib if and when another baby comes along, nor will we have the luxury of an over sized nursery to place the crib in the middle of, at least I can warn my sweet readers of this lesson learned.
