Some people are wary of portable cribs thinking they are flimsy or less reliable than a standard full size crib; however, this crib is excellent. Foundations manufactures cribs of excellent quality! I use these in my business so they get a lot of use, but they are sturdier and more reliable than most standard cribs. This is great if you don't have a lot of room, or for a grandparents house as it will be usable for years (as long as your child still needs a crib). The only downside is the fact that you have to bend all the way over to pick up or put in your baby, so for a newborn it would be a pain and uncomfortable, but as they get older, this is definitely a great crib to have.
I bought this for when my new granddaughter visits. It is the perfect size, we love the wheels as we can move it from the family room to my office easily. I am very picky about the quality of the hardware on cribs and this has heavy metal hardware and the quality on everything is amazing. Even the wheels are heavy duty. It was well packed and the white finish is flawless. The mattress is much thicker than most of the other mini cribs I looked at. I feel like we got a real bargain for what we paid for! It fits the same sheets as our Pack n Play and crib size blankets are just the right size.
With our first daughter we borrowed this same crib from friends. She slept in it in our room for the first 4 months. I really loved the mini crib. It was safe, sturdy and light enough that I could push it around easily after my c-section. It was also a beautiful cherry finish which matched our bedroom furniture. Now pregnant with our second daughter we have purchased the crib from overstock to use for new baby and future babies. It does not come with a mattress but a foam pad. We used the foam pad with our first and will with our second. It's firm and though it doesn't seem comfortable at first our daughter had no problems. Besides, the price of the mini crib is great but when you add a $80 mattress plus you will probably buy a full size crib and mattress that money adds up very fast!
