Rated 4 out of 5 by tiina565 Very sturdy I ordered the gray version of this crib. It is very sturdy and seems to be very well constructed (had to put it together, but was very easy). The shipment was quick and cheap. The only bad thing was that the packaging was not very good- one of my side peaces got damaged but the replacement peace came fast. Overall, I can't wait to start using this product :) May 21, 2013

Q:How do you lower the mattress on the Alex crib? Thank you
A:To lower Alex's crib mattress support, simply:
1. Remove the "L" brackets: One in each corner; each is installed with two screws -- one inserted into the crib end and one inserted into the mattress support
2. Remove the mattress support
3. Reposition and install the "L" brackets in the crib ends at the height of your choice (top, middle, or bottom)
4. Set the mattress support on top of the re-installed "L" brackets
5. Insert the screws into the "L" brackets to fasten the mattress support

Q:Is it possible to put a bed skirt under the mattress given how high the initial mattress setting will be? How would you recommend accessorizing it so it's not just a plain crib with a crib sheet?
A:To build a safe sleep environment, giggle recommends the following crib bedding "must haves":
1. A firm, snug-fitting mattress, such as giggle's Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress (or, any of the crib mattresses in giggle's assortment -- they're all firm and snug-fitting!).
2. A waterproof mattress pad, like giggle's Better Basics Organic Cotton Crib Mattress Pad, for easy mess clean-up.
3. Fitted crib sheets, like giggle's Better Basics Fitted Crib Sheets, with a deep pocket and elastic surround to make sure sheets stay-put.
An optional addition to almost any crib (including Alex!) is a crib skirt, which can add a nice design touch to your crib!
giggle's Alex may be dressed with a crib skirt, which can be both practical and aesthetically appealing. The crib skirt is placed under the mattress, over a crib's mattress platform, and the skirting will "hide" both the mattress support and any visible hardware (or, anything you may be storing under the crib!), and create a lovely design.
As your child grows, and you lower the mattress support, the crib skirt will lower with the support, and you may choose to gather and "tuck" under the mattress any additional length that may be skimming the floor.
Q:Can I get the dimensions of the crib and its slats, height, etc.?
A:giggle's EXCLUSIVE Alex crib has the following dimensions:
--The exterior dimension is 30.6'' L x 55.6'' W x 41.9'' H.
--Interior dimensions are standard, 28" W x 52" L.
--The slats are designed according to standards set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and are set no further than 2 3/8" apart.
