Let the crib chronicles begin!

With their Sept. 15 due date fast approaching, proud parents-to-be Vanessa and Nick Lachey aren’t wasting any time setting up the basics (and beyond!) for their baby boy.

Watching the Olympics while @NickSLachey puts together the cutest Babyletto mini-crib for our family room,” Vanessa, 31, Tweeted on Aug. 4, referring to the brand’s modern-chic Grayson sleeper ($250), a portable crib, featuring safety hinges and lockable wheels, that can easily be disassembled and stored.

But that’s not all the couple have been up to; Just last month, the expectant mama, who has Tweeted she is working with Layla Grayce on baby boy’s nursery, added three more finds to her son’s stash.

“It’s time to get things done! We just put together our @babyhome_social dream, eat & onfour. @NickSLachey loves their contemporary style,” she shared on July 22.

I guess I’m confused as to why they put a portable crib in the family room. The crib doesn’t look like the hight can be adjusted and putting a newborn in there sounds harder than a pack and play with the newborn attachment.

I don’t think it’s any different than a pack and play. But, I think this looks like a jail … too modern for me.

Before my kids were born, I thought we might need a pack N play or something like that in our family room too for naps and stuff or baby changing. But I soon learned it was just as easy to put them in their room for naps and they played on the floor / bouncer. Walking upstairs to change a diaper was not too difficult. A pack N Play was just not necessary for me and fell into the category of “extra stuff people try to sell new parents on.”

I have 4 kids and found that putting up extra “equipment” in the living room to be a waste of time and money (especially with a perfectly awesome crib waiting for them in their rooms).. Also.. the portable crib that Nick and Vanessa chose is ugly. It’s not that it looks too modern but rather the fact that it looks like cheap particle board and really un-inviting, not warm and comforting at all..

Sara, I’m so glad I’m not the only one that thinks that little crib looks like a jail cell. Its terrible to say, but its just…not cute.
I have to agree tho. We bought a pack n play thinking it would be useful for traveling, or naps, or even some safe playtime, but the darn thing never even left the box. It was just much easier to put my DD in her bed for naps, and when it came to travel….she was around family for most of it and never seemed to leave someones arms. lol. Pack N Plays are just a waste of money IMO. Its much easier to buy a cute crib, and call it done.

I don’t really see the point in setting up a crib (or pack and play) in the family room, but at least it does look like it’s height adjustable, you can see the holes on the inside slats.

All cribs look like jail cells.

Im a little confused?! Isn’t this my alma crib by bloom baby. I have the grey one too. This babyletto is slightly different but I must say the MDF wood wouldnt make me want to chose this over the blooms. MDF cracks and chips and is dangerous for babies. They might swallow it! Why would greyson guys even make this. DANGEROUS
