Baby cribs are the first permanent bedding your baby will sleep on. It's a very important piece of furniture, especially for new parents. Of course, new parents also don't have a ton of expendable resources. You might be able to get the baby's grandparents to purchase a new crib, but you may have a friend, neighbor, or family member who has a crib up for grabs. Alternately, you may have certain circumstances that require special considerations for your crib. Whatever your situation, these are some of your options for finding the baby crib that's best for you.
Baby Crib Repair
If your family has an ornate, antique baby crib you might be interested in using this family heirloom for your baby crib. Antique furniture tends to hold up extremely well over time, but this piece may still require some baby crib repair. Even if the crib is in good condition, you may want to have it inspected. Minor flaws can expose a wood crib enough to create splinters. The last thing you want your new baby to do when he or she is first able to stand up in the crib is to lodge a splinter in his or her hand. Cribs that have suffered some damage or extensive wear may need a new bottom. Naturally, you won't be concerned about maintaining the original condition of the crib with your baby using it. If you are concerned, it's probably best to store the crib and buy a new one. Along with structural and surface repair, you'll also want to make sure an antique baby crib meets modern safety standards.
Of course, you may also need some baby crib repair on a used crib that's only a few years old. Since baby cribs aren't needed for too long as furniture goes, used cribs are out there. Be careful buying a used crib, though. Unless you have a manufacturer's year and model for crib and can verify the crib's history, you may want to steer clear. At the very least, double check with the manufacturer on any crib recalls before purchasing a used crib. That said, superficial damage on used cribs can be repaired. A baby crib repair professional will be able to inspect your crib for its condition during the repair. In fact, be sure to ask the professional to do just that.
Custom Crib Builder
Cribs come in all kinds of woods, wood imitations, designs, and specs. You may find the crib you want for your baby, but even with all the options out there you may not. Twin baby cribs, for example, are in short supply, but can be built by a custom crib builder. You can design a crib with any kind of dimensions, any species of wood, or any specifications you desire like double folding rails. Organic cribs that are free from chemical treatments that can influence your baby's development are also available. As long as your crib meets government-mandated safety guidelines, there's almost no crib you can't have built for you.

Baby Room Remodel
You might like the idea of hiring a custom crib builder, but be wary of the added expense. True enough, custom crib building isn't cheap, and since it's far from a common service, there's a good chance you won't be able to find someone who specializes in crib building. Bundling services, though, as part of a home improvement package can make this option economically viable. If you need to hire a company for a baby room remodel, this company probably has a woodworker on staff. You may be able to get a substantial discount by adding a custom crib as part of your remodeling project. Even if you don't need a full baby room remodel, you might need other woodworking done in your house. You might be able to hire a woodworker to come in and install crown molding or decorative wood paneling and build you a baby crib at the same time.
