This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in October of 2017. If you're converting a small office into a nursery or living in a compact apartment, you may not have room for a full-size crib. But getting a mini option doesn't have to mean sacrificing quality or style, as you will see from our selection of well-built models that you'll feel proud to display in any room. Be sure to assemble them with patience and care, and adhere to any and all safety warnings. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Special Honors

West Elm Mid-Centruy Acorn This is one of the most stylish cribs you're ever likely to see, with its angular legs and rounded slats. It comes with a cozy mattress, but the fact that its short sides are solid wood might be a concern for parents who don't want their little ones to feel claustrophobic or to be hard to check in on from certain angles. westelm.com

Editor's Notes

July 31, 2019:

The performance of the mini cribs on our previous list resulted in a bit of a reorganization, with two of our top three models being new additions — the elegant DaVinci Autumn at number one, and the extremely practical Bloom Alma at number three. That third place option could have climbed a little higher were it not for the high price tag, which is also what kept the strikingly designed Stokke Sleepi out of the top three. On a personal note, I fell in love with the Stokke's rounded frame, built-in mobile arm, and lockable casters, but I still couldn't get past the price. The biggest loser in our shakeup was definitely the Delta Folding Portable, which is an okay budget option, but its mid-grade construction and low mattress height were enough to send it back to number nine.
