Just because you don’t have space for a full toddler bed or baby bed doesn’t mean you can’t give your baby the best sleep possible. There are many options, but sometimes there just isn’t enough room for standard cribs. In this list we’re looking at the best cribs for small spaces to help you maximize the space you have.
We’ll be reviewing some small cribs, mini cribs, portable cribs and other options that fit well in tight spaces. We’ll also look at additional features that help keep your baby safe and protected while providing a good night’s sleep.
Top 3 of the Best Cribs for Small Spaces
For this list we found three of the best mini cribs that take up less space but provide plenty of comfort, such as a mattress comparable to a twin size bed and a beautiful crib designed to fit mini crib mattresses that are perfect for your baby to sleep in.
Our first product is a mini crib with a built-in twin mattress. This is excellent if you have more than one child who needs to sleep in a close space. The crib itself fits a standard DaVinci mini crib mattress perfectly so that there’s no worry about movement while your baby is sleeping.
The crib includes four adjustable mattress positions so that it can grow with your baby. A mini crib is also useful for co-sleeping or as an alternative to a bassinet or play space. This gives you more options than you probably thought were previously available.
This crib is non-toxic and chemical-free. It’s made baby-safe so that you can focus on putting your baby to bed for a good night’s sleep without worrying about anything else.
- Dimensions: 40.35×25.08×40.9 inches
- Color: White
- Materials: Pine wood
- Fits in small spaces
- Adjustable mattress positions
- No smelly odors or toxic chemicals
- Not quite as compact as some other options
- Made to fit only the DaVinci Mini Crib Mattress
This mini crib model has four different positions that it can be set to give your baby the type of sleep they need. It can change from a mini crib, to a mini toddler bed, to a daybed, to a play space. This model takes up a small amount of room while delivering loads of value.
With adjustable mattress height options, you’re sure to find the right sleep position for your baby to be comfortable. It’s also made of non-toxic solid pine wood, so you know the construction is high-quality. The feet and base are very sturdy, and the crib exceeds most all safety guidelines.
The positions are easily interchangeable with no need for a conversion kit or special tools. Everything you need to assemble this multi-function compact crib is right there in the box. Much more than just a portable mini crib, this one will serve your baby for a long time.
- Dimensions: 32x24x38 inches
- Color: Various
- Materials: Pine wood
- Four sleeping positions for the baby grow into
- Quality pine construction that is chemical free

If you want something that performs like other small-sized cribs but has the functionality to turn into a full twin size bed once your baby is ready, then this is the perfect crib for you. As a crib it has all the functionality of a full-sized crib in a smaller footprint. However, once your baby is ready to move beyond the crib, then it easily converts to a bed.
The mattress is extra thick so that it’s easy to sleep on as either a crib or bed. There’s no need to worry that the transition from crib to bed will be difficult because of a sub-par mattress. The mattress height is also adjustable to two different heights making it much more flexible for your baby.
The functionality combined with exceeding safety standards makes this crib one that you will be glad to have your baby sleep in.
- Dimensions: 38x24x2.75 (mattress) inches
- Color: White
- Materials: Solid pine and poplar
- Highest level of safety standards for baby cribs
- Converts to a twin sized bed when ready
- Easy to assemble
- Mattress is extra thick for excellent support
- Not as adjustable as other mini cribs
