My husband and I spent a lot of time deliberating when it came to which crib to buy, but when we saw this one online, it was an instant hit for both of us. We liked it was more compact than all the others we'd considered, and the modern aesthetic and color appealed to us.
I left it to my husband to put together (for domestic harmony, I think husbands and wives should lead separate DIY lives) which he did in under 30 minutes. It came in five pieces (six if you include the toddler rail) which all fit perfectly together using the included bolts and alan key. It feels very sturdy, and there's no wobble when you give it a shake.
It's a little lower than I'd imagined, but we're very happy with it, and much prefer it to some of the ornate monstrosities we saw during the course of our crib shopping. I think it's well-priced too.
Our baby is due in a few weeks, so the crib's not been slept in yet, but I can't foresee any issues. I will update this review if anything comes up.
In case you're wondering about mattresses (especially when ordering online) we went for the Sealy Baby - Ultra Rest Crib and Toddler Mattress. It's a good fit for the Baby Mod Modena. You can barely squash one finger between the crib sides and mattress when it's in place, so it's well within the baby safety recommendations, plus it's nice and firm.
