14 Solid Back Crib Options For a Gorgeous Nursery in 2022

| |

There’s no denying that a solid back crib can elevate your nursery to a whole other level. So if you have heart set on a crib with a solid panel backboard, you have tons of options from classic to modern at every price point on this list.

Why a Solid Back Crib? 

The look

The solid panel adds a visual weight to the nursery that looks just right. In general, a crib with a backboard will have additional designs that add extra detail to the whole look. You can choose a crib with a curved top for a look that’s slightly softer, or a straight edge that’s a bit weightier. 

Either way, solid back cribs are striking. 

The convenience 

Once your little one is a bit more coordinated, you can bet he or she will throw things like pacifiers (or even clothes) out of the crib through the slats and over the top. (In our home, we called it the morning clean-up.) 

So keep things from falling out all the way behind the crib by having a solid panel. 

Makes for convertible cribs with solid headboards

Many modern cribs are convertible to full-size beds (although the kit is often sold separately.) If you choose this route, you and your little one will appreciate having a solid headboard to lean on while reading before bed rather than uncomfortable slats.

Solid Back Crib FAQ

Are cribs with solid headboards safe?

Yes, solid back cribs are safe as long as they pass the current safety standards. If it’s available in-store, it’s safe to be on the market. Some new parents worry about suffocation hazards, but that applies to soft surfaces – not hard ones. This is why some parents opt for mesh crib bumpers too. For peace of mind, remember that your baby’s hospital bassinet was solid plastic.

Are upholstered cribs safe?

Even if the upholstered crib passed all safety standards, err on the side of caution and choose hard solid to not worry about suffocation risks.
