Babyletto Origami is a perfect choice for modern families. With its minimalist design fits really well into modern homes of young families.

Because of the wheels and folding mechanism, Babyletto Origami mini crib belongs to the big group of portable cribs.

Babyletto Origami mini crib is a better alternative to bassinets. Why? Because it is more compact as bassinets and way more comfortable. Although the crib won’t take up much space, your baby will be able to use it longer as a bassinet.

Mini cribs are not just the choice of parents who are facing lack of space. More and more parents decide for them before they move the baby into a standard crib. They can place the mini crib beside their bed and have the infant in the same room.

With such arrangement, babies start learning to sleep in her own bed right away. But they are still close to their parents. There will be fewer problems with moving into their own room later.

Child size restrictions:

  • stop using the crib when your child is able to climb out or reaches 35 inches
  • usually, it is suitable for newborns up to 18 months, but that depends on how big is your baby

Mattress information:

  • you can adjust the mattress to two levels
  • it has a solid mattress support
  • any mini crib mattress fits into the crib
  • you should use the mattress up to 5″ thick

Although you get a 1″ mattress at price, we recommend using a thicker mattress in the crib. Babyletto recommends using Babyletto Pure Core mini crib mattress in the Origami crib. That is a lightweight mini crib mattress that fits perfectly into the crib. It is made from non-toxic materials and fully recyclable.

The Pure Core mattress has a multifunctional cover with a soft quilted cotton face and vinyl-free waterproof backing to protect mattress against accidents. The cover is removable, and you can wash it in the washing machine.

The Babyletto mini mattress is a safe choice for your baby, but as I mentioned before you can choose any mini crib mattress for the Origami crib.


How we evaluated Babyletto Origami mini crib in our Review

We have compared Origami to other cribs of the same type, not to the all portable cribs, as that wouldn’t have sense. For instance, Origami is a foldable mini crib made from wood. It is sturdy and compact, but we shouldn’t expect it will fold up as small as travel cribs. So we need to evaluate how well it folds up in comparison with other foldable mini cribs.

 

We had researched and evaluated the following things:

PORTABILITY

What did we take into consideration?

  1. do casters run smoothly
  2. does the crib fit through standard room doors
  3. do locking mechanism on casters keep the crib in place

 

FOLDING MECHANISM

Babyletto Origami mini crib has a collapsing mechanism for easy storage and transport. Although in theory, you can transport the crib in the car, it does take a lot of car’s space.

We had checked:

  1. how is easy and fast you can collapse the crib
  2. how easy you can set up the crib
  3. how much space does the folded crib occupy

 

SAFETY

In order to determine if the crib is safe, we checked the following parameters:

  1. if there are any safety issues
  2. how sturdy is the crib
  3. if the crib stand steady when the casters are locked
  4. does the crib meet all the required safety standards

Babyletto Origami mini crib meets all required ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) international and US CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) safety standards. The crib is lead and phthalate safe, and Babyletto uses only non-toxic finishes.

 

DESIGN

For evaluating the design, we had taken into consideration the following things:

  1. if the bed is available in sufficient colors
  2. the look of the whole crib

Frequently asked questions

1. How high is the top mattress position?
Measuring from the floor to the platform that holds the mattress it is about 21 1/2″ 

2. How hard is the assembly?
You should take time, follow the instructions and don’t rush. If you follow the provided instruction, the assembly is easy and shouldn’t take you more then an hour and a half.

3. Can I assemble the crib without the wheels?
Yes, you can, but the wheels are actually a good feature. While they are locked the crib stands still, and it’s little higher than without them.

4. Is it possible to take the front railing off and use it as a co-sleeper?
No! You shouldn’t do that, because it won’t be safe!

5. Does the crib fit through doorways inside the house?
