Baby Relax Crib Review



A traditional, non-convertible crib that appeals to parents for the value of the total package (which includes a dresser), the good looks of the walnut finish, and the sturdy build. The mattress in this Walmart exclusive can be set at four heights.

Given the price and quality of this crib and dresser set, Baby Relax crib reviews say the deal is a steal. Both pieces must be assembled and the component parts are heavy, but crib reviews on Walmart report that they're relatively easy to get set up. The crib comes together in less than an hour while the dresser is a lengthy and more complicated task. The end result is attractive and sturdy baby furniture, although a few reviews conclude that the crib outranks the dresser in the quality department. The major gripe about this set, according to Baby Relax reviews, is that pieces of the unassembled furniture may arrive broken and/or scratched.

Baby Relax crib reviews posted on Baby Center note the benefits gained by choosing this Walmart exclusive: the all-in-one package simplifies shopping and ensures that everything matches, and the price of crib plus dresser/changing table is often cheaper than a crib alone. Other reviews indicate that this set appeals because the crib only functions as a crib; it's a traditional, or standard, model and unlike 4-in-1 convertible cribs, it can't be reset as a toddler bed and daybed, or the long sides used as headboard (and sometimes) footboard for a full-size bed.

This is the only traditional crib on our list of best cheap cribs. The style suits families that plan to pass the crib along to another child or lack the space for the conversion options. Each piece is finished in walnut, and the dresser has four drawers with a changing station mounted on top that's rimmed by guard rails. The mattress can be set at four levels.

All in all, the Baby Relax My First Nursery set is a deal that's hard to beat. But only if you don't need or want to repurpose it after the crib years are over and consider the dresser a bonus that might outlive its usefulness at the same time.
