Best for Longevity 2018

Knuma Huddle 4-in-1 Bedside Crib review

If you’re looking for newborn sleep solution that will have longevity, the Knuma 4-in-1 Bedside Crib is a product worth investing in

As the name suggests, this crib can be used in four ways: as a bedside crib; a standalone crib; a removable bassinet; and then, when it’s no longer needed as a crib, it can be converted into a child’s desk and bench that's suitable up to 12 years.

Knuma bed

We had no worries about comfort in this crib – the mattress was soft and the baby loved snuggling into it.

The crib has 10 height settings and can be adjusted to slide in perfectly next to pretty much any bed, up to a maximum mattress height of 70cm – one of the highest out there. This is especially good if you're breastfeeding, as having your baby within arm's reach makes a huge difference to the ease of night feeds. It's also always nice to be able to see your baby through the mesh paneling without even having to raise your head.

The detachable crib means your baby can be brought to nap in any room in the house, so you can keep her close by as you get on with your day. The neutral colour options mean it blends into most rooms.

It's really easy to put the side up and down in the night, and it looks great, too.

It’s of the highest quality, it looks great and we found it super easy to assemble. Reasonably priced at £220 (the mattress will cost an extra £30) this is an option that will last longer than just a few months. The Knuma 4-in-1 Bedside Crib has the potential to become a modern classic in the baby market and for very good reason.

The Specs:

Age: Birth to six months, then up to 12 years as a desk
Dimensions: H98 x W48 x D89 cm
Weight: 20 kg
RRP: £219.95 (plus £30 for the mattress)
