Guess Who Put The Baby Crib Together All By Herself

My old teddy in the corner + a few gifts sent over by my mom

That would be me!

We bought the crib {or cot, as it’s called over here} from Mocka, a family company that’s based in Christchurch, New Zealand.  I wanted a crib that was simple and clean with a standard American sized mattress, no drop-sides, and reasonably priced… all while complying with safety standards.  This crib met all of my criteria and I was able to put it together in about 30 minutes.  Nice.

I like that the crib is entirely wooden {except for the screws} and that it’s not a huge piece of furniture.  I’ve never been a fan of cribs that dominate the room, and this one is a great size.  It has an adjustable mattress height for when baby gets a bit more active {i.e., tries to climb over the bars}, and I’m pleased about not having any drop sides.  It also converts to a toddler bed, which seems crazy to think about now but will come in handy later.

Now, I just have to find some of those teething rails to protect the sides.  I never would have thought of those, but my mom pointed out that they might come in handy when baby starts teething.  There’s so many things to think about.

    Good for you putting it together yourself! We have those teething things, but if you can’t find them I wouldn’t worry about it. I’ve never seen any of my boys chewing the railing – so far!

    Holy cow you are one productive mama! It’s a good idea to get all this stuff done way ahead of time though, we had a goal to have the nursery ready by the end of 2010 and still aren’t quite finished!
