Budget-minded parents will appreciate the Dream on Me Rocker. It may not be the most beautiful or elegant cradle, but it can be used for babies up to 20 pounds, has a stopper to prevent rocking when needed, and feels well made.
Recommended for newborn babies and smaller infants, the Green Frog Now and Forever cradle is beautiful and well-made, with features like a hidden stabilizer bar that adds support, making it safe and durable. It also features easy roll casters for moving around the house.
The Summer Infant Classic Comfort features a music box that plays melodies, calming sounds, and creates soothing vibrations to help a baby drift off to sleep peacefully. It also has an adjustable canopy and large storage basket.
It's hard to find a crib that works with the aesthetic of modern homes and also works well for the infant lying down in it, but the So Ro Contemporary fits the bill. It has sleek, simple lines and a unique rolling design that makes it easy to rock.
