If you are short mum, your first consideration is to get a short crib with a height of fewer than 35 inches that will not go above your waistline. It can be a real struggle to get your baby to the crib if you end up with a tall crib.
For average mothers in America of 64 inches (according to CDC), a regular crib with or above 35 inches may be Okay. However, shorter mums with 55 inches or less in height, a short crib of fewer than 35 inches is the most ideal.
In this post, I have spent a good number of days researching the 5 best cribs for mums with 55 inches or less. Let’s get started!
Top 5 Cribs for Short Mums:
Below are the best 5 cribs ideal for shorter mums:
- Babyletto Modo 3-in-1
- Delta Children Bentley S Series
- Storkcraft Hillcrest Fixed Side
- Union 2-in-1
- DaVinci Kalani 4-In-1
Reviews of the best Cribs You Can Get as a short mum:
1. Babyletto Modo 3-in-1: 34.5 Inches
Babyletto is our overall best crib you can get if you are a short mum. It is a 3-in-1 crib as it can be used as a crib, toddler bed or as a daybed and you can rely on it as your baby’s durable crib as your baby grows from infancy to toddlerhood.
I ranked this crib first as it meets our minimum requirement of being below 35 ft in height. When you assemble it, it is 34.5 inches in height making it easy for you to place your baby to bed.
In addition to that, it comes with 4 mattress height adjustable positions allowing you to easily adjust and raise the mattress height to fit your height. I like this Babyletto Modo not just because of its low height, I also really like this Babyletto because it is one of the most durable convertible cribs for short mums for short mum as it is made of solid sturdy wood.
Another reason I like this small-mum crib is that it is safe for baby as the slates spacing are 2.375 inches.
Below is a review of Bayletto Modo, 3-in-1:
2. Delta Children Bentley S Series 4-in-1 Convertible Baby Crib
This 34-inch Bentley S Series brand of the convertible baby crib by Delta Children is the second-best crib for short mums. For any petite mum, this second crib on this list is also convertible and unlike the Bayletto brand above, it has 3 adjustable mattress positions.
If the 34-inch height is not short enough, you can also choose from the three positions. In addition, it is made of strong, solid wood that is JPMA certified for safety.

Storkcraft Hillcrest is our third on this list and it has one of the lowest heights of 34 inches. Similar to the reviewed cribs above, Storkcraft is convertible and has adjustable mattress positions. You can get this crib for less than $150.
It is made from pine wood and despite its height quality, it is priced well and it meets all the JPMA safety and certification standards.
