Baby Mod Cadence Crib Review

By   

Ease of assembly and overall quality are the hallmarks of this 4-in-1 convertible crib, according to Baby Mod Cadence crib reviews. Blog comments posted on Baby Center gush about the value buy, noting that this Walmart exclusive is virtually identical to a higher-price model sold by other retailers under another brand name. On the Walmart site, crib reviews gush about the espresso finish and the sturdy build; one parent reports the crib passed an improvised test for stability that involved the use of 30-pound weights.

This model is a breeze to set up, according to Baby Mod Cadence crib reviews, and can be completed solo, even by a woman who's eight-months pregnant. A note of caution, though: Making the screws too tight can cause the word to crack, says a review. And if you plan to use bumper pads, you might find that some designs don't fit around the wide slats.

The 4-in-1 design of the Baby Mod Cadence (starting at $240) converts into a toddler bed with a guard rail, a daybed, and a full-size bed with headboard and footboard ($50 conversion kit required). The crib is made of sustainable New Zealand pine, which parents report dings and scratches easily. (Tip: cover the scratches with a marker.) There are four mattress positions to accommodate a growing child. The mattress is sold separately but sometimes Walmart bundles one in with the crib for little or no extra cost. A matching dresser and a changing table with three drawers are also available.

This crib is priced a bit beyond the Cheapism niche but is a good buy if you have a few extra dollars to spare.
