These Stylish Cradles Are Perfect for Baby's First Sleep

One of baby’s most fundamental needs is having a safe place to sleep. A safe and beautiful place to sleep is even better. The cradle you choose ought to reflect a commitment to your little one’s safety. But this first-ever beddie-bye can also reflect your taste in home furnishings rather than standard-issue department store décor.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends babies have their own sleeping space and a firm sleeping surface, and for newborns, a cradle or bassinet is undoubtedly cozier in than a full-size crib… Which is why we’ve rounded up six of the sweetest sleep spots available:

Oliver Furniture’s Seaside Cradle

In Scandinavia while dark winter days prevail, its people are drawn to light which is why white is always a coveted color. It’s cool, classy and bright. This Danish Seaside cradle has beautiful end pieces and nicely finished bars on the sides. All of Oliver Furniture’s children’s furniture is produced under sustainable production in Europe and the quality is excellent, born from a proud Scandinavian tradition of wood-making. The simplicity of its timeless design allows its high quality craftsmanship to shine through. This cradle is sturdy and durable and can be passed on as a beautiful heirloom to the generations that follow.

Monte Design Rockwell Bassinet

This sleek, luxe basket and stand are handcrafted and sustainably made in Canada using the highest quality materials, including a waterproof mattress and polished chrome legs with solid walnut rocker base. The soft upholstered basket can be removed and transported to different rooms in your home and when your mini-me outgrows the bassinet, the basket alone makes an excellent spot to store plush toys.

Woodly Pluma Cradle

We love the no-frills elegance of this supple nest fashioned from pure, non-treated, wool felt stitched by hand in Western or “saddler” style. The Pluma is supported by a light and strong solid wood structure and inside, a cotton and organic spelt husks mattress guarantees comfort and contentment. It’s entirely hand-made, with the frame made out of beech solid wood that’s Forest Stewardship Council certified.

Suommo Moveo Mini Cot

The Moveo mini cot baby concept features a truly innovative design which allows gentle rocking while offering greater stability and safety. Designed in Spain for superior air circulation, dubbed the BabyAirflow system, the Moveo provides a sleep-easy atmosphere for your infant. Quilted champagne silk bedding is sold separately.
