EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED. We ordered this cradle after a very long search and shopping around for months! When it arrived I was so impressed with the quality of the wood, its shiny and beautiful color ( cherry ), looks even better than the picture, easy to install, rocks in two ranges: one is a wide range, n if u put the lock in from the inside it doesn't hold still 100 % it rocks in a very very narrow range which i like at night when I am sleeping and my sunshine beside me in her cradle. But!! it comes with a pad which is very thin, so u will need to buy a separate mattress ... if your thinking you will get a mattress, nope..its just a very thin pad. be prepared to by an extra mattress.

I purchased this cradle in the Cherry finish for my very first grandchild. It was easy to put together and it is beautiful-just what I had envisoned. The only thing that would be more helpful is if there was an actual instruction sheet on how to convert it to the loveseat down the road. I assume you just remove the front rail but it would make more sense if there was somewhere to attach that rail once it is removed so it did not become lost or damaged in the event you once again wanted to use it as a cradle..

A must have
By: MORGAN BABY, TX
This is our first baby and we were not sure what to buy. Took a chance on this and we love it. Very sturdy. We are getting a second one to keep at Grandma's house for when we visit because the baby sleeps so well in it.

Perfect for Baby!
By: NORA, TX
This glider cradle is nicer in person than expected. The size to my surprise was much larger than anticipated and that is always a good thing. My only dislike wad the thin padded mattress, it seems uncomfortable and I'm looking into a replacement mat. Other than that I'm very happy with the product, I chose the cherry finish and the shade is lovely, more brown than red.

glad I got it
By: ONE TIRED MOMMY, UT
I am so glad I got this cradle, for the weight rating.
Baby came out bigger than expected. He would have out grown all the other cradles fast.
Love the rocking motion, use that a lot at night.
Can't find anything wrong with it.

A Special Gift
By: BESSIE CHRONOPOULOS, ILLINOIS
I wanted to purchase something special for my wonderful goddaughter and her hubby who are expecting their first child...and I'm on a budget. I fell in love with the Gliding Cradle/Loveseat and took the plunge to order it, hoping for the best for an online purchase. Well, the hubby and I put it together and it is stunning...the cherry color is perfect.
I will also be purchasing an additional bedding items and contacted ababy to get some advice...fantastic help.
The only complaint I have is that there isn't a 6+ star rating as a 5 star rating just doesn't seem like enough to reflect my total satisfaction.

My Little one slept in this until a few weeks ago when she was too big. It was a perfect compliment to our bedroom in addition to being a great cradle. I put it together myself at 7 months pregnant and found it pretty straightforward. love the rocker function. haven't turned it into a seat yet but looking forward to doing so.

Very Nice Cradle

I bought this for my daughter for Christmas as a last minute gift idea. I ordered it a week before Christmas and worried I wouldn't get it in time. It arrived in just a few days and I had plenty of time to put it together and surprise her. It is a beautiful cradle and she absolutely loved it. I would highly recommend this cradle - it is very well made and easy to assemble.

We ordered this cradle and it came within the week! My husband put it together in about an hour and it looks amazing. It is larger than the cradles you see in the stores and seems very sturdy. It is a great value for what we got.
Review 15 of 55
By: SARAH, VIRGINIA
We spent a lot of time shopping around for a cradle or a bassinet. We really wanted something that would last beyond the first few months. We looked at cradles that changed into changing tables, but when we found this we fell in love.
After more shopping around we found ababy.com had the best price also.
We ordered it on a Tuesday and it was here on the Friday!! Very easy to put together, and really gorgeous looking!
I cannot wait for my little boy to arrive so we can see how he looks snuggled inside it.

We were looking for a cradle that would last the test of time. This cradle has it all - beautifully crafted, easy to put together, and we love that it converts to a "loveseat' of sort... we will probably use it for toy storage, but it's nice to have the option to use it after the baby can no longer sleep in it.
Worth every penny!

great product, very sturdy!
By: JENNIFER, NEW JERSEY
my baby was born very premature, and when we finally got to take him home, i didn't want to keep him in his own room in the crib as we were planning. We wanted to keep him close to us, but did not want to co-sleep. We have 2 Great Danes, and needed something very sturdy that the dogs wouldn't knock over in our bedroom. This cradle was PERFECT! also, what a wonderful idea to have it convert into a loveseat! it's very quiet when it glides, and extremely sturdy. I had no fears of my clumsy dogs knocking this cradle over! The only thing i would suggest is that you purchase another mattress for it, because the pad that comes with it is only about a half inch thick. We purchased one of the inexpensive pads from this site with the cradle, and it worked out great! My child is now 3 months old, and has outgrown the cradle part. (he's a big baby now) but i can't wait to change it into the glider and move it into the nursery.

I am a grandmother I am very picky on what I choose for my Grandchildren. This cradle is very strong, roomy, yet fits perfect in a small room. I just found out I am going to have another grandchild coming and I am going to order this cradle again. I was very surprised that the cradle was not expensive, it is a good price!

What a nice surprise!
By: TERRYB., PA
Looking for something else on-line and I came across this site with this very nice cradle 5 days before my daughter's baby shower for our first grandchild. I called to get info and the young lady salesperson was very accommodating and said that she thought it could be shipped in time. I ordered it on a Wednesday and good for her word, it was delivered by Thursday evening! And the new parents just love it! Thank you!

Lovely Gliding Cradle and Loveseat
By: MAGGIE ENGLESE, NEW JERSEY
This cradle is lovely, price is right, roomy, well constructed, and the fact that you can continue to use it after the baby has grown out of it is a plus. I bought one for my new granddaughter just born on October 28th, and I am going to order another one for another granddaughter that will be born in December.

I am very pleased with the cradle as a whole. I put it together myself and it only took me about half an hour. I was disappointed that it was not available in cherry when I ordered it, but the oak is nice too. I also noticed a spot where the varnish or stain dipped and the color is inconsistent otherwise I am very satisfied.

2 babies within 33 days...
By: AN "OVERJOYED" GRANDMOTHER, MARYLAND
I'm a new grandmother; and I purchased one cradle when my grandson was born and 33 days later I had to order another for my granddaugher... both mothers and I love this cradle; it is of good quality and allows the baby to sleep soundly and away from pets and too much air. We're also happy the cradle will grow with the babies. Thanks so much for presenting such a safe and good quality heirloom product.

The cradle is just the cutest thing. Very practical in that once it's done being a cradle, it can be nice piece of furniture. Only reason why I didn't rate it excellent is because when building it, my husband commented that we'll probably need to add some support to make it into the loveseat.

Lovin' this cradle!
By: SONDRA FERGUSON, UTAH
This item is absolutely perfect. Looks expensive, very nice, pretty cheap price, and glides very smoothly. The fact that it came with a cradle pad was nice too, a little thin, but great anyway. I would definately recommend this item to others, it was well worth it, and goes together quickly, which is a big plus, daughter loves it! Will be able to use for years to come. Thanks Ababy, and angel line.
Review 42 of 55
By: TIFFANY, COLORADO
We ordered this cradle in white, and we chose the round spindles instead of the flat ones (an option available only with the white finish). This cradle is absolutely beautiful!!! It was very reasonably priced, which was important to us as we bought this cradle for our fourth child. What makes it an even better value is that it can be converted to a gliding loveseat. We are just about to move our baby girl from her cradle to a crib since she is 6 months old now, and we plan on putting this loveseat in her room and filling it with stuffed animals for the time being until she is old enough to sit in it. It was very easy to assemble...my husband called me at work to tell me it had arrived, and when I got home about half an hour later he had it all put together. The quality is great, I was surprised because of its low price that it was so solid. The gliding mechanism is very smooth. It's so rare to find something online that is as great a deal as it seems to be, but this cradle is that and more. I am extremely pleased with both the cradle and the customer service I got from ababy.com. Blessings on you and your little angels!!!!!

Gliding Cradle and loveseat
By: FLO PEYATT, RI
I I just received this item and I am so glad I ordered it. It is well made and beautiful-I purchased this one because my daughter and son in law only have a one bedroom home and the baby will be in their room for awhile, the other cradles are for a few months-this one holds up to 50 lbs. In today’s market things are not built to last, I can truly say my grandson will be able to pass this down to his children. I love it! I can't wait for the shower so my daughter can see it. Delivery was fast too.

An heirloom piece for years to come...
By: G. MOORE, BOWIE, MD
Both of my daughters gave birth this year within 33 days and each needed a cradle to use when the baby was not upstairs in their crib. We are all absolutely in love with this item. It not only looks good, but it is easy to assemble. It is also a great place to let the baby rest no matter what room we are in. Everyone comments on its sturdiness. We're looking forward to the time when the cradle can be converted to a glider or chair in the baby's room.

This is my first baby and he slept well in the cradle for the first couple of days. This is a wonderful cradle; kinda difficult to understand how to put together but I managed.

What a great price for a piece of furniture that can keep being used as the baby grows into a child! The main drawback with buying a cradle is how limited its use is and for such a short time, and for that reason I was not even going to bother with buying a cradle. So I was very delighted to find this one that change into another piece of furniture. I can't wait to get it here and put it together! Thank you very much for offering this beautiful and very functional piece of furniture.

A New Tradition
By: SHARON, PENNSYLVANIA
This cradle has become our traditional family baby shower gift. The first one we purchased a few years back is now being used as a glider on the porch. Another is still being used as a cradle and we have one to be given as a shower gift in November. It is well built, safe, and a beautiful piece of furniture. Ordering was easy and the delivery was quicker than expected.
