Sorelle Newport Description and Specifications
Newport is a versatile and sturdy mini crib. Square slats are placed all around the crib. The changer is attached to the right side of the crib. So it closes the view of your baby from that angle.
Newport mini crib is with 40,91 inches as high and safe as any other crib. Overall Sorelle Newport length is 57,10″, with 28,85″ width.
Sorelle uses a solid New Zealand pine wood for the Newport crib. All materials and finishes are also Eco-friendly. You can get a crib in white or merlot color. Although Sorelle uses rich finishes, they disappointed with a poor color choice for the crib.
There are some suggestions on the web that you can paint the white crib. We would not recommend that because of the safety issues, also the warranty will be voided.
What can you expect from this mini convertible crib with changer?
Sorelle Newport is a 2-in-1 mini convertible crib. Once your baby outgrows the crib, you can convert it into a twin-size bed and use the changer separately as a nightstand. You won’t get rails for the conversion into a twin-bed in the package. That is not unusual, as you have to buy the conversion kit for almost any other mini or full-size crib as well.
As mention before Newport has attached changer on the right side of the crib, that’s why we call it a combo or multifunctional crib. It means that Sorelle Newport is not just a place for sleep, but also a changing table for your baby.
The changer has three organizing drawers that sit on the metal side glides. The depth of the drawers is 6″ from top to the bottom. Also, on the back of the changer, there are three shelves for additional storage. You get the 1″ vinyl changing pad beside the changer.
The changing table is 16” long and 24” width.

We noticed that many parents complain, they couldn’t assemble the certain crib in an hour or less. Why? Yes, it can be frustrating if you are unable to finish the job in a day.

Down points and Solutions for them
Sorelle Newport is a convertible mini crib, but it converts only into a twin size bed. You get more than a nonconvertible crib, but less than with many other convertible mini cribs. We are missing a daybed stage here.
Another thing is a color choice. Why only two colors? Usually, manufacturers almost competing who will offer a bigger selection of different colors, but not Sorelle.
Anyway, Sorelle uses only rich finishes that highlight the natural beauty of the wood, and two colors they offer for a Newport are nice looking, quality, and non-toxic.
Don’t forget about The Safety!
Safety should play a big role when you are buying a new crib. Actually should be the most important factor in your decision!
Sorelle Newport is a safe and sturdy crib, made from solid wood for lasting strength! The crib features fixed side rails, so it doesn’t have dropping side. And that is how it should be with any new crib on the market!
Sorelle uses only non-toxic materials for all their furniture, and the crib is also lead-free. Newport is JPMA certified. That means that the crib has been tested by an independent facility and met the guidelines set by ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials).
As such, Sorelle baby nursery furniture meets or even exceeds all U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standards and conforms to ASTM standards.
Overall Sorelle Newport mini convertible crib with changer, is a nice looking combo crib. It can convert into a twin-size bed, so even if we miss a daybed, we can call it a lifetime crib.
With changing table attached to the crib, it is a money saver and perfect solution for smaller apartments. Newport is a sturdy crib and safe environment for your baby. It is as comfortable as full-size cribs, but your baby will outgrow it sooner. Don’t forget that this applies to all mini cribs, so don’t take it as a down point! Anyway, because of the twin-size bed transformation, you can use it longer as some other mini cribs.
