How to choose the perfect crib:


A crib is one of the most important and most fun purchases you'll make when you're preparing for the arrival of your new baby. Infants spend most of their days sleeping, so they need a comfortable and safe place to rest that keeps them and you feeling secure. Babies grow quickly, so you'll want a crib that grows with your little one once he or she is ready for a big-kid bed.

There are so many beautiful cribs to choose from, but before making a decision, learn why the Rory Crib is one of our favorites and one that will look beautiful in your nursery.

Construction & Design

A crib with solid construction not only looks great but is also a lot safer. Our Rory Crib is expertly crafted from poplar and spruce woods for a stunning look that is also durable, and the large wood components exceed safety regulations to further enhance its safety. You'll be happy to know that Pottery Barn Kids cribs are rigorously tested to meet or exceed all required and voluntary safety standards enacted by the U.S. Product Safety Commission, the American Society of Testing Manufacturers and the Canadian Cribs and Cradles Regulations.

Each piece is put together using mortise-and-tenon joinery to give it extra strength, security and longevity. Hardware, bolts and finishing nails are concealed for your baby's safety and to give the crib a clean, streamlined look.

Sometimes the simplest designs are the most versatile. The Rory Crib has crown and dentil molding to give it a classic, timeless design, while the Weathered White finish gives it a rustic, vintage charm. The pieces in the Rory Collection are finished in a multi-step finish process with heavy textured grain to give each one a natural look and feel.

All of our finishes are heavy-duty and difficult to scratch, so you can feel confident that the crib will look beautiful for many years to come.

Grows with You

Babies get bigger quickly and a crib is a big investment, so it's important to find one that grows with your child. The Rory Crib features a sturdy, heavy-gauge metal mattress platform that adjusts to three different heights to accommodate your growing child. The highest position is perfect for newborns. Lower it as your baby begins to sit up, and then lower it again to maintain safety when the little one begins pulling him or herself up to stand.

As your baby reaches toddler age, he or she might be ready to transition into a big-kid bed. Make this transition as smooth as possible with a convertible crib that adapts into a toddler bed in a few simple maneuvers.
