Hi Everyone!

Just found this forum -- wow, what a great resource! Everyone is so nice!

I was wondering if anyone here knows anything about the "quick change crib"? My mom saw this on-line and thinks I should get one (or maybe she will get me one ), because she's telling me I'm going to have a hard time changing the sheets. (It's at www.quickchangecrib.com).

I was thinking about getting zip-sheets (the kind that snap on), but I'm pretty short (I'm 4'11"), and I'd still have to reach over the side, plus I'd prefer to use my own designer sheets.

Has anyone tried it? I want to be sure before I make a decision.

Thanks everyone!!

Annie

Welcome Annie!
Well, sorry to say I haven't tried any of those things! The quick change crib looks really neat though and it is pretty. I've never tried zip sheets. I'm not short though so I guess I never thought about it but I can see how it would be a problem, especially after the baby is bigger when the side rail is all the way up. I'm 5'7" and I hate stretching over the sides to change my dd's sheets, lol, so I can imagine your plight!

Hopefully some of the other moms on here have tried one of the products you mentioned and will be able to let you know what worked for them.
Sorry I couldn't help more! Good luck!

never heard of that type of crib. looks nice. but i am 5ft 4in and i dont have an issue with changing sheets when my daughter was in her crib-we just moved her into a toddler bed. and moved my son into her old crib. i personally wouldnt pay 500 dollars for JUST A CRIB. if it was a crib that turned into a toddler bed and then a full bed then possibly.

Thanks for your replies!!

Well, I bit the bullet, and went ahead and bought one.

They were so nice -- they're FedExing me a crib, and I'll have it in four days!!!

I'll be sure to report back here, and let you know how it is.

Thanks again!!!

Annie.

I went and looked at the crib I have and I noticed that since it does turn into a toddler bed, the drop rail comes off fairly easily so I am thinking that it would work almost the same as a quickchange. I have a crib with the changing table built in.

That crib looks pretty awesome!

I being 5'3 really dont have a problem changing the sheets. but i usually lay my son on top of the comforter and cover him with his blanky . just so if my cat gets in i dont have to change the sheet (tevye in my sig, sheds so i have to change it alot if he gets in there) which the door stays shut most of the time, but hes fast. lol. and i took the bumpers off at 3 mths, hes always on his back and i've had no problems. i dont use the comforter to cover him cuz he's become a blanket baby and has to have his silky soft blanky to sleep with. however ive since bought him what we call a boo bear that is a little blankey on a bear and he sleeps with that (i feel safer with a smaller one, for some reason he likes to put it over his face right before he drifts off)


but the quick crib seems like a good idea.

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for everyone's answers! I've had this crib for almost a month now, so now I feel prepared to give you all a full report!

It is definitely "as advertised". I would strongly recommend it. My mom, who had a regular crib back when she had me, couldn't believe this crib and how easy it is to change.

Just for kicks, we tried to change the sheets without opening the door, like a regular crib -- WOW!!! What a difference the door makes!!

Our nursery is pretty tight, so I was worried about how we'd be able to open the door and get the mattress out in the small room -- but the crib is on lockable wheels, and we just wheel it into an easier position when we change it. It works great!

Here's the kicker -- even my GRAMMA (!!) can change this crib without a problem. And she is definitely not a young girl anymore!

I would buy it again, for sure -- definitely worth it! (And the lady who answers the phone is super-nice! No sales pressure!)

Thanks again for all of your replies!

Annie.
