The following are my crib suggestions (for reference, I’m 5′ tall):
- Babyletto Modo 3-in-1 Convertible Crib $279
Height: 34.625″ (feet can be removed, lowering the height to 30.75″)This is the crib that we have for Dylan. Adrian and I love mid-century furniture and the style of this crib is modern and minimalistic. The crib height is 34.625″ but the feet nubs can be removed to make the crib 30.75″, absolutely ideal for the petite momma. For me, I have it with the legs on as I’ve found that it isn’t a problem. Even better is that for the price, the crib converts to a toddler bed and daybed.
* Walmart also has a very similar Baby Mod Olivia crib measuring at 35″ tall for $299. Legs also look optional. (buy)
- Ikea Gulliver Crib $129
Height: 32.625″This crib is another great option that sits very low to the ground. True to Ikea, this crib is affordable and has a simple design. However, when I looked at this crib in person, it didn’t seem quite as sturdy as I would have liked.
- Graco Shelby $400
Height: 31.75″This is a great classic crib with a sleigh bed design and is highly reviewed on Amazon. It’s advertised to have a small footprint and good for small spaces.
- Stork Craft Tuscany Crib $173
Height: 33″For those who love sleigh cribs, this one is for you. It’s slightly taller but actually converts into a toddler bed, daybed, and even full-size bed. You can’t beat that for the price.
[Update]: It looks like 33″ is actually the width measurement, and I can’t seem to find the height for the lower side of the crib. Unfortunately, this crib may not be suitable for petites.
Hopefully this helped my fellow petite mom-to-be and anyone shopping for cribs for short moms. Good luck!
P.S. In case you missed it:
