When we were expecting our son, my husband and I picked out a crib that was $500. It has a nice solid wood frame and a stylish look.
At that time we thought that we were splurging, so you can imagine my surprise when I came across this crib by Duc Duc that retails for $6,000.
The ‘Dylan crib system’ includes a crib, change table and bonding bench. With additional extensions the crib converts first to a toddler bed and then to a modernist daybed.
While I am not disputing that this crib has some top notch features and a not seen before style, I wonder if parents are able to spend that kind of money on a piece of furniture that they may only use for a few years.
This seems to be one of those items that well to do families would purchase just to say they had one. The Hermes bag of the baby world.
At the end of the day a crib is a crib. One doesn’t hug your child better or create a more serene environment.
They all have bars that hold the baby in and mattress to keep them comfortable.They will still wake up three times in the night in a $200 crib and a $6,000 crib.
Knowing all of this would you pay $6,000 for a crib…system?
