How to Choose the Perfect Crib

Sloan Crib

Picking your baby’s crib is an exciting part of designing your nursery. Not only is it important for it to be safe for baby, it’s also a piece of furniture that shows off your nursery style so you want it to be just right. 

The Modern Baby Sloan Crib gives a contemporary twist to classic crib style with Mid-Century inspired details and acrylic slats that give you a better view of baby. 

Discover six reasons below why the Sloan Crib is such a great choice for your nursery.

Quality & Construction

From its unique acrylic slats to its rich finish, the Sloan Crib gets every detail right. Crafted from solid Eucalyptus wood, acrylic, acacia veneers and medium density fiberboard, the Sloan Crib features a long-lasting, sturdy construction. It’s expertly built with concealed hardware for a safer, seamless design along with mortise-and-tenon construction and tongue-and-groove joinery for structural integrity. 

Let’s talk about the beautiful finish. This crib features our sister brand west elm’s exclusive Acorn finish to provide depth of color and extra durability. It’s applied using child-safe, water-based paint so you can enjoy a rich color that’s safer for baby.

Healthy Baby, Healthy Planet

No detail is more important than the Sloan Crib being GREENGUARD Gold Certified. This means it meets strict chemical emissions limits to contribute to cleaner air and is screened for more than 10,000 chemicals and VOCs. Healthier air helps baby breathe easier and provides you with peace of mind.

Fair Trade Certified™ 

By choosing the Sloan Crib, you’re not only making a good decision for your baby, you’re also helping give back. This crib was built in a Fair Trade Certified™ factory where fair labor practices are ensured, livelihoods are improved, and workers are empowered to invest in their communities. 

Safety First

Cribs must be able to stand up to anything – from the baby who won’t sleep to the toddler who wants to jump all around. That’s why we make sure that every crib in our collection is rigorously tested to meet or exceed all required and voluntary safety standards enacted by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, the American Society of Testing Manufacturers, and the Canadian Crib and Cradles Regulations. 

Grows With Them

It takes time and work to find the perfect crib. Not to mention, styling the nursery around it! Luckily the Sloan Crib grows with baby – so you can love it far past the first year. The crib features two metal mattress platform heights to accommodate your baby as they learn to sit and stand. And once your baby is ready for a big-kid bed, the Sloan Crib can be converted to a toddler bed.
