Weighing the advantages and disadvantages of the Dadada Soho Crib vs. Stokke Sleepi Crib
The Dadada Soho Crib can be used beyond toddler years as a day bed. It fits a standard size mattress, providing parents with the flexibility to choose among many mattress brands and prioritize their mattress preferences. This standard mattress fit, also creates flexibility for bedding and sheet options.
The traditional design of the Soho Crib make it a permanent room fixture and not portable. While it is convertible, the conversion pieces are sold separately.
The Stokke Sleepi Crib, comes with included, removable, lockable, swivel wheels. It can be kept in the nursery, bedside, or it can be transported from room to room. Its oval design is easily maneuvered through doorways. The included wheels also allow baby to be rocked to sleep, and the oval shape is meant to provide comfort and security by resembling a mothers womb. There are no conversion pieces required! The Sleepi Crib is quickly converted to a toddler bed by simply removing one side of the crib and lowering the mattress.
While the portable oval shape of the Sleepi Crib is appealing to parents, it is important to note that only the Stokke Sleepi Crib mattress will be the right fit and dedicated sheets/bedding are also required. The oval design does limit mattress and sheet/bedding options.
