When should you buy the baby crib during pregnancy?

Pregnancy can be a very confusing time, especially for expectant mothers who experience this for the first time. You may be overwhelmed by all kinds of advice, and some of them may seem contradictory. It can be quite difficult to keep your peace of mind between all the doctor's recommendations, reorganizing your life for expecting a baby in your life and your mind being flooded with all kinds of thoughts.

To begin with, you have to set up a new space for the baby that will enter your life. But, purchasing a crib can seem like a real challenge for many parents. In reality, the future parents choose to buy the crib for the future baby at different moments of the pregnancy.

In this article, we will answer this question: when should you buy the crib during pregnancy? We will also give you some useful hints that can help you.

When should I buy the baby cot?

While some parents rush to buy the crib from the moment they find out they will have a child, others tend to postpone this moment until close to the birth of the little one. There are parents who tend to skip the need to buy a baby crib, but we do not recommend this. It is quite strange for the baby to arrive home and realize that his crib is not waiting for him. The solution for him to share the bed with you and your partner is not a viable one at all. Also, we do not recommend improvised solutions, such as pram-type baskets or babynests. Baby needs a crib of his own, a place where he can rest very well and comfortably, a clean place.

We recommend you to buy the baby cot in the second trimester of pregnancy. This means that 4 - 6 months of pregnancy is the most suitable time for this. Already now you should know if you are expecting a girl or a boy. Also, you have now passed the first trimester of pregnancy which is often quite demanding, tiring and confusing. Things have settled down and you can easily find a window in your time to order a wonderful baby bed.

There are about 3 months left until the birth, which means you have enough time to arrange the baby's room. Also, if you take care of arranging the baby's room and purchasing the crib now, you will not need to do this in the third trimester, when you will tire very easily and will need more peace.

Why should I buy the baby crib so early?

There are several reasons for this, apart from those listed above. If you choose the cot now, it will be easy to find one that suits you and your partner. If you find something you really like, it's worth buying it right away. Now you should have more time to check the offers, make comparisons, read the product descriptions and really make an intelligent choice. Most likely, you will buy the crib for your baby only once, so make sure that the choice is the right one.

You will discover that there are several types of cribs that you can choose from. For example, you can choose a standard one or one for co-sleeping, a convertible cot, made of wood or fabric, with additional options (such as lights), with wheels, etc.

What questions should you answer when you want to order a baby crib?

Answer these questions so that you can more easily choose the ideal crib for your baby.

- How long does it take for the furniture for the baby's room to arrive?

If you are in the 6th month and you have to wait 3 months to receive the baby furniture, then this might not be very good for you.

- Will I be able to take care of arranging the baby's room or will I need help?

The idea is that if you wait until the last months of pregnancy, it will be difficult (even impossible) for you to arrange the baby's room properly. Most likely, you will need help in this case. That's why it makes sense to order the baby crib earlier.

- If the baby decides to come a little earlier, will I have his room ready with the crib he wants?

Again, this is one of the reasons why the second trimester of pregnancy is the best time to buy a baby crib. Most premature babies are born between 6 and 9 months.

- Did I wait long enough to make sure the pregnancy is viable?

You don't have to be afraid to approach this question. The idea is that if you rush to buy the baby crib in the first trimester of pregnancy, and the pregnancy is not certain (most problems with pregnancies occur in the first trimester), this will completely confuse you. If you have passed the first trimester and the doctor has confirmed that everything is fine, it means that you can quietly order the baby crib in the 2nd trimester.

Finally, waiting makes sense!

Even if you are in the first trimester of pregnancy, we invite you to inform yourself now about the cots for babies in our offer. Browse and see what you like. If you are in the 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy, we are looking forward to buying the most beautiful baby crib from us.
