This 4-in-1 makes the first months simpler
I was skeptical about getting this at first because I saw that the price was a little bit more than I wanted to spend for a crib. Finally, after my friend’s raved about it for long enough I finally decided to break down and purchase it. Honestly, I see what they saw in it now because it really does simplify life a lot in the first months of parenthood. It makes it so much easier because it puts everything in one place instead of having the changing table on one side of the nursery and the crib on the other. This is especially useful when it comes to nighttime diaper changes. Another huge bonus when it comes to having two things combined is the fact that it makes our small nursery look and feel like there is more space.
The Portofino has a lot of storage
I love the fact that this has three drawers for storage so that it can hold diapers, wipes, and even changes of clothes. I like to always keep spares of things and anything I could possibly need for middle-of-the-night wake up calls in the drawers because it means that everything is within reach at all times. There are also shelves on the side of the change table which can easily hold baby powder, diaper creams, and anything else you might be able to think of. I am also very happy with the fact that there are bars around where the baby lays for diaper changes because I don’t have to stress about him rolling off by any chance.
This crib had a bad smell!
One thing that was definitely very apparent upon opening this crib was that it had a very strong, acrid smell! It was a chemical smell that permeated the entire room and was very overwhelming. I decided to let it air out and that worked but it did take longer than I expected. Luckily, I bought this before I had my son but if you are hoping to buy this and use it right away you might want to beware the scent. As far as assembly goes, this wasn’t terrible except for the instructions. The instructions made the entire process just that much harder and it turned out to be something that took multiple hours when it could have taken one. I hope to see them add clearer instructions in the future but at least it is together now and I don’t have to worry about it.
A great crib and changer
Honestly, I think that this is an overall amazing crib and changer duo. It combines simplicity with beauty because it has a gorgeous, sturdy feel to the entire thing. I have recommended this to my friends just like my other friends recommended it to me and everyone who has bought it confirms that it is amazing and well worth the price. I highly recommend checking it out if you are willing to spend a little bit more to get better quality and lasting power.
