There are actually some truly unique twin cribs available on today's market, though many are becoming hard to find. We will go over this diverse group so you can get a good idea of what each one features as well as what you can expect to spend (they are much more costly than a single crib). Having a special crib for twins might make all the difference to some parents, and knowing what’s out there may help with planning a double nursery ahead of time as well addressing the co-sleep decision. We will also provide a bit of information on twin bassinets.
The first crib we will talk about is the popular, Little Miss Liberty Duetta Crib Mate Twin Round Wood Canopy Baby Crib. Two round cribs are designed to connect for an adorable twin crib that truly makes a statement. It features four different canopy configurations, and the two mattresses are included as well. You will likely need a bit more space for this set up given that it’s really meant to be in the center of the room (or at least away from the wall). So far, I have found the average price to be around $3,000. Keep in mind you will have to buy bedding, as well.
There are two different configurations of a great twin crib (called a
twin cot) made by a company called Pamco. They offer the award winning
Corner Cot for twins
which will accommodate your babies from infancy to about 5 years of age.
This cool design also converts to a sweet little corner sofa with the
The other design is their practical Twin Cot which is essentially like having two cribs put together end-to-end. It may also be converted into two twin size beds with an additional kit.
You can count on paying around 650 GPB (United Kingdom Pounds), or $1,329 USD for the corner cot (not including conversion kit). And you’ll pay around 599 GPB, or $1,224 for the twin cot (not including conversion kit). They will ship overseas if you don’t live in the UK, but you will need to contact them.
*We have been told that the company may open a warehouse here in the U.S.A. at some point, so we'll keep you posted!
Netkidswear.com used to offer the innovative Twin Bunk. It has a
fabulous, space-saving, twin bunk design.
When you have limited space for your twins, this may well be a good
choice. You can acquire this clever twin crib for about $700 plus $150
in shipping - if you can still find one.
Yet another bright idea is to just get two
They come with standard features of regular cribs, but they are much smaller
and lighter, making them great space-savers. A good value, they can
also be converted to twin beds (conversion kit sold separately) to
accommodate your growing twins. At around $250 or so a piece, they may well
be the best bang for your buck. The photo shown here is courtesy of projectnursery.com
But, if you're NOT on a budget, you might fall in love with the Alma
Mini Urban cribs. They're pretty pricey at almost $1,000 a piece, but
their cool, modern design along with the ability to fold up for storage
make them very enticing for parents of multiples living in small spaces.
Another consideration is the Graco Pack N Play - Scout.
which converts from a twin bassinet to their trendy (and very popular) Pack N Play. This is a great quality item by a brand that's been trusted by parents for a very long time. Even though your twins would only be able to sleep in this for about 6 months or so, it would still be handy to use as a playpen afterwards. I know a lot of parents actually bought one of these in addition to two cribs because it was so handy. You could keep this in the living room, kitchen, or any other room that you spend a lot of time in with your twins.
While your twins are very young you could simply have them co-sleep
in one standard crib. This is possible with a crib spacer or divider. It may be an affordable alternative, but can
generally only be done for the first few months.
This particular spacer (shown) is by the Leachco brand. You may even decide to go with this sleep option even if you have two cribs because twin babies often sleep more soundly when they're together.
