I was looking at the Gulliver. Love the simplicity and the price. However we are tall ppl and I worry that it would be really uncomfortable for us to get baby in and out. I also wonder about the height of the crib part-is it standard height and the legs are just short or is everything shorter on it....anyhow just something to think about if your tall I guess lol

Love our ikea crib! Best $70 we ever spent. It fits so nicely in the room, giving us extra play space and is a nice, simple design.

Re: Ikea Crib

I have the Gulliver and it's awesome It seems like it might be too light to work well, but I really have loved it in the past 10 months!

Re: Ikea Crib

We have a 4 year old Hensvik crib and we love it. DD used it as a crib and then a toddler bed and DS uses it now. It has held up great!

My friend has two white gulliver cribs. They are very sturdy. I have a Mammut line crib and it is also very sturdy. I think your good.

To the pp who mentioned height, the crib is just as tall as other cribs (they have to pass certain tests to be sold here I believe) it just that they don't sit up on tall legs. After having two other cribs, MUCH prefer the shorter style of these. The bed raises to lay baby in and it's very comfortable and when they're a bit older you lower the mattress just the same and then they're about a foot off the floor.

Re: Ikea Crib

The height talk reminded me of one issues I do have with ours. With DS, we lowered it, but still needed to lay him down in it sometimes when he was already asleep - this was pretty tough to do as I had to practically hang over the edge of the crib to lay him in there gently. With DD, we actually kept it at the higher crib height until about a month ago and then went straight to the toddler bed conversion.

I love the low crib height too. I am 38 weeks pregnant and can still lay my DD down asleep in it. It isn't easy, and I'm not tall (5'3"), but I can do it...barely lol. It helps that DD is used to some jostling when I put her in. I am quite sure there is no way I could put her in laying down in a taller crib.
