The Disadvantages of Mini Cribs
Grandparents often buy mini cribs to provide a safe place to sleep for their baby grandchildren when visiting.
However, there are some drawbacks to this crib before you buy it.

The difficulty of finding bedding requires a comfortable fit to ensure that it does not pose a choking risk to sleeping babies.
Although all crib stores have bedding for standard cribs, it is more difficult to find bedding for mini cribs.

This limits your choice of patterns and colors and may increase the cost.
