Many parents ask me what is the very best crib to "sleep" your newborn. My answer: It is a very personal choice that it is a very personal choice. Some parents prefer a co-sleeper next to their bed, some go straight to the crib while others use a bassinet. Sometimes these choices are made with space issues in mind. The most important factor to keep in mind is that whatever you do choose, the sleep space must be infant safe and the crib must Conform to global standards and meet the crib standard safety. The Alma crib by Bloom is a great choice for parents with compromised living space. I do not recommend using this cute modern crib for your baby when they begin to roll or move. Babies need to find their sleep comfort zone, use their bodies and use their brand new developmental milestones such as rolling while sleeping, getting comfy and of course, having a good nights sleep.
