Changing Bed Height on an IKEA SUNDVIK Crib – Demonstration and Review – Clueless Dad

This is a follow up for our video about the IKEA SUNDVIK Crib –

Alex asked how to adjust the height of the mattress, so we thought it would be good to do a demonstration video. While we are at it, let’s do a review of the Sundvik now that we’ve been using it for 3 months as well.

Any questions? Please leave a comment.

Which position is better for a 7 month baby? The lower or the higher?

Kangna Gupta says:

Hi, this is good to know that it is strong enough given it holds the bed of 4 screws. We were planning to make this crib as a co-sleeper and wanted to know the two bed heights that this crib offers (including the regular mattress). Hope you still have this or someone can reply with measurements. Thanks.

Thanks for the tips, they were interesting and useful! Hadn’t thought so much about the back strain situation, so it’s good to have that in mind.
