I'll likely be getting the DaVinci Emily Mini-Crib. I like that their cribs are real solid wood, even if it is just pine. At least it's not particle board or something! And, of course, the price is right =)
Davinci sells regular sized cribs as well, but I'm not sure of the price range there.
Even though I'm currently in the UK, we're not going to be here too much longer so I don't want a UK cot, I want American size cribs. The cribs I really wanted don't seem to be a realistic option at this point because most stores won't mail something that large out here so I'm having to settle for a couple American cribs that are more frequently carried/available here. I'm really not thrilled about it because the cribs were the only thing I was being really specific on, it seems like a big deal to me now, but I'm sure I won't even care once they're here.
I had the anatomy ultrasound today and everything is going really well. The babies are on target for size and are still each the size of a singleton baby at this point! It's crazy how large they've gotten! They also shifted position, they're now in a T formation, baby 1 is head down and baby 2 is in a transverse position with head to my right and feet to my left. I am so blessed to get this experience and well up with even more happiness each time I see them!
Pixie - my friend who had twins said they preferred to be in the crib together for the first few months. Not sure how safe that is, but might save you from having to buy two, if it's a feasible option.
I'm not opposed to second hand, but I'd really like the cribs to match. I think they can only share a crib until they can roll over and babies have a tendency to be really early rollers in my family so I think we're going to try separate cribs from the beginning. We'll get it all sorted and once they make their arrival I'll wonder why I spent so much time thinking about it!
I know! I'm starting to get anxious. We have a crib, but no mattress. We have a high chair and a pram. That's it. We definitely HAVE to have a mattress and car seat, for sure. Those are of course, the most expensive things on our registry!
And, we have to order the car seat in time to see if it fits in the car, and if not, return it and order a different one!
