How to Choose the Perfect Crib


Tatum Crib

The biggest decision when decorating your baby’s nursery can be choosing the right crib. You want a crib that’s long-lasting, secure and beautiful. That’s where the Modern Baby Collection steps in. We’ve curated a collection of nursery furniture that raises the bar when it comes to safety and style.

Modern Baby’s Tatum Crib has a simple-yet-playful design that looks good in any nursery. Keep reading to find out why the Tatum Crib is a nursery must-have.

Quality & Construction

From its beautiful black-and-white color contrast to its long-lasting construction, the Tatum Crib is made to be loved. It’s expertly crafted from solid poplar wood to be sturdy and secure. Plus, it’s built with mortise-and-tenon construction and tongue-and-groove joinery for the ultimate structural integrity.

Every detail is the very best. The Tatum Crib is made with concealed hardware – the bolts are assembled from the inside to keep things extra safe. And a difficult-to-scratch finish is applied using child-safe, water-based paint to add durability and enhance the pop of black and white color.

Healthy Baby, Healthy Planet

Our Tatum Crib is GREENGUARD Gold Certified, which means it meets strict chemical emissions limits to contribute to cleaner air. It’s screened for more than 10,000 chemicals and VOCs, ensuring safer, healthier air for everyone. 

Fair Trade Certified™ 

When you choose the Tatum Crib, you’re not only making a good decision for your baby, you’re also helping to give back. This crib was made 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

Like you, safety is always our top priority. All our cribs are 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

Our Tatum Crib will grow with your baby from day one through the first year and into toddlerhood. It features two metal mattress platform heights to accommodate your baby as they learn to sit and stand. And once your baby is ready to sleep like a big kid, the Tatum Crib can be converted to a toddler bed. So you can enjoy tucking your little one into the same sleep space for years to come.
