Q: I have been scouring the web trying to find a full-sized crib (not a mini crib) that will fit in a niche in our TINY (8x8 + the potential crib bump out) nursery. The problem is the space we have to work with length wise is exactly 53.5".... Most reasonably priced cribs I've found are at least 54" or longer (including all those at Ikea). Does anyone know of any cribs, preferably $300 or less, that would fit within these specifications?

Editor: Ikea's Gulliver, for instance, is listed as 53.5" which means if both of your measurements are accurate, you may be able to wedge it in. But even that may be too tight a squeeze. I think the trick is that manufacturers base crib sizes on standard mattress sizes. Readers, do you know of any full-sized cribs that are just a smidge smaller?
