So we know that mini cribs are smaller. That’s a no-brainer!
But what exactly is the difference in size?
· Usually, mini cribs are between 36 and 43 inches long. Standard cribs have to be about 53 inches long.
· Mini cribs can be about the same width as standard cribs (28 inches), or they can be a tad narrower (around 24 inches).
So how much smaller is a mini crib? Mini cribs are around 10-15 inches shorter and slightly more narrow than regular cribs.
The key thing to remember is that mini crib sizes aren’t standardized the way full-sized cribs are.
Full-sized cribs MUST adhere to certain size regulations, usually within about half an inch.
Mini cribs can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
That’s great news if you have a very specific need in your nursery due to:
· Its small size
· A weird layout
· The other furniture in the room
Mini crib mattresses can also vary in size when compared to standard cribs.
Standard cribs must use a mattress with a 6-inch depth.
Mini crib mattresses, on the other hand, can be anywhere from 1 to 6 inches thick.
All the customization and choice you have with a mini crib can be really convenient! But remember that standard crib sheets and bedding you buy separately may not fit.
