Help finding a crib please!

I'm looking for a crib or bassinet that is low to the ground. I'd like to total height (bars and all) to be three feet or less. I'm not sure such a thing exists, if it does, I haven't found it. I'm hoping for something that will last the first year.

Please & thank you!

Most of them are going to be low to the ground due to the drop side. Ikea's are very very low - the lowest I've seen but it really depends on your price point. Remember for a little one, the mattress on some can be raised so you only lower it when they can sit/stand which helps.

Try Googling "low profile crib", there are quite a few that came up for me.

Ikeas are really! low to the ground. Eta-if it helps they also make cribs where one of the sides of bars opens up.

This is the one that my MIL/FIL bought DD with the matching changing table. The front and sides are less than 36" tall. The back is higher.
It adjusts to 4 different heights depending on which holes you use and also how you adjust the metal frame under the mattress. It goes from Bassinet to pretty low. (DD is 30" tall & 1 years old. When she stands the front rail is just above her arm pits.)

All the cribs have dimensions listed at the bottom. This one is 35" tall.

Low profile crib, ugh, I can never come up with the right phrases to google, hence these threads. I tried low to ground, short, and a couple of other weird random things. I'm bad at searching.

I'm looking for something that fill fit in a certain place, I'm not worried about being able to reach down, does that make sense?

Re: Help finding a crib please!

Then, do you want a mini crib instead? They are smaller.

We have an ikea and it is definitely the lowest I've seen. It was also the cheapest ($99) and I love it. It's just a simple, no-frills crib and looks chic in our semi-modern style nursery.
