Cribs with storage come with a useful storage facility attached to the crib’s body. This storage facility may include an accompanying dresser, a changing table and sometimes even an under crib storage feature like drawers.
A good crib can be the perfect solution for your baby’s bed for years to come. It can give you comfort, safety. Question is how to find the one that’s the best value for your money. Ideally, a well chosen crib should be safe, sturdy and should have the ability to fit into your room without making it look congested.

Full Review: Dream On Me Casco 3 in 1 Mini Crib and Dressing Table Combo
Espresso, Natural, White, Black, Cherry
- This is a light weight, portable crib that offers a great storage capacity
- It comes with a changing table which includes a changing pad, a restraining strap for safety, three roomy drawers and two back shelves. A 1” mattress pad is also included with the crib.
- The crib is convertible into a day-bed and a twin sized bed (optional bed rails sold separately)
- It has two adjustable mattress levels
- CPSC certified
- A great choice for small spaces
- The crib comes with a mattress pad which is much thinner than a mattress itself. So, you might like to order a suitable mattress separately when you’re ordering the crib.
- Despite being a mini crib, it may not fit through all the doorways so it is important to decide the best place for your crib before assembling it.

- Non-adjustable mattress height levels. To adjust the mattress height, you’d have to use two mattresses for this crib.
- The changing pad is not included and the changing table’s small size (5″ x 15.5″) can make it a little tricky to find the right sized changing pad from other manufacturers apart from Athena.
- Finding the perfect mattress for the youth-bed can also be a little challenging.

- The raised sides of the crib’s changing table add to safety and prevent the chances of a baby falling off the crib but the gaps on these sides can cause a baby’s hands or legs to get caught if the baby is left without an adult’s supervision.
About Cribs with Storage
As you already know by now, cribs with storage are simply the cribs that provide the facility of storing a baby’s goods along with serving as a nice infant-bed. They often also include a dresser and a changing table which can be later converted into a bed-side table when the crib is converted into a full sized bed or a youth bed.
Cribs with storage are also known as multi-purpose cribs due to their ability to act as more than just a crib and encompass numerous furniture pieces into a single structure. With one crib of this kind, it becomes possible to cut down on various other shelves and cupboards in a room. Thus making the room look more spacious and spick-and-span.
It also helps to bring down the cost involved as a single multi-purpose crib is often more cost-effective than a crib and other pieces of furniture bought separately.
However, it is important to remember that since a crib with storage is designed to give more space to the room, its size and weight is often monitored to not become too big and bulky. This means that the accompanying changing table, dresser and shelves, etc. are also designed to fit in a smaller area and are thus often smaller than the regular changing tables and dressers bought separately.
Cribs with storage are designed to enhance the overall functionality of a normal baby crib and provide a complete bed, safety and storage solution.
