When Ohdeedoh reader Michelle found out she was expecting her first child, her husband, a designer by trade, set about building the better crib. Using social media tools, he polled parents to hear what they have to say about conventional crib designs. After much planning, sketching and re-polling, he executed his final design. Keep reading to see how he resolved the number one beef most parents have with standard cribs...

It's a problem we can totally relate to: changing those persnickety crib sheets! Here, that problem is neatly resolved by having the mattress pull out on a drawer for easy access. In addition, this ingenious design includes extra storage and beautiful bamboo slats, all on a wheeled base for even more convenience.

Read about the entire process here, then here.

If you're intrigued by this crib design, you should know that Michelle's husband is considering the possibility of creating more of these in the future.
