In 2007, crib sales in the United States hit an estimated $1 billion and expected to grow to $1.26 billion by 2012, according to research from Easy Analytic Software Inc. Given those numbers, the future looks steady for those who manufacture cribs as well as nursery case goods, glider rockers and crib mattresses. Even in an economic downturn, many expecting parents still need to visit stores or Web sites to outfit their nursery.
Kid's Today takes a look at this industry and talks with manufacturers to get their take on sales and production in hard times.
Bratt Decor was one of the manufacturers interviewed for its ability to withstand such trying times.
"I believe this is a year to make smart yet conservative business decisions, focus on core products and provide excellent customer service," said one company owner. "There are people affected by the economy, but also stores that are doing very well.
Last week "Moderndad" mentioned the prams Jennifer Lopez has for her new twins, but there are other baby products to gawk at in the People Magazine article too. For instance, the matching "Casablanca Cribs" in the nursery. Even though the picture in People makes it look like neither child has ever spent a moment of their lives in the cribs.
The Casablanca Premier crib is adjustable, meets all the US safety requirements and has a drop front gate that's integrated into the "scroll bar." And if a big, vintage-looking metal crib with a lot of ornate scrolls matches your design style, then this is the crib for you.
The Casablanca Premier is available as a custom order in burnished gold, silver or satin white for $950 from Bratt Decor.

Swag and celebrities are always a happy mix, and yesterday the love was in full bloom at Jayneoni Moore's Boom Boom Room. For the first time ever under the 'Boom Boom Room' name, the event -- a staple on the celebrity baby circuit for the last four years -- ventured outside the confines of Beverly Hills, to a sunlight-flooded (and jam-packed!) studio loft in Manhattan. From cutting-edge innovation to classics-in-the-making, there was a little something for everyone at this showcase for all the latest in baby and kid gear and fashion.
The Boom Boom Room, hosted by Jayneoni Moore in NYC, was wall-to-wall packed with vendors, booths, and people. But like any other event, there were a few vendors who -- long after you had passed them by -- you just couldn't stop thinking about. Before you knew it, you found yourself making the rounds again just to get a second peek! If you're thinking you missed out, don't worry. Over the next week Missy and I will be bringing you information on products that really stood out to us at the event, from new fashion lines exclusively for boys and girls to new styles of baby gear, and much, much more!
Bratt Decor was there and showcased its recent work on star mom J Lo's nursery. The company replicated Emme and Max's nursery to a tee, well sans one crib that is.
Bratt Decor was among the hottest names in baby at the Boom Boom Rooms Hollywood Baby Shower this week in New York City where they recreated J LO's nursery sans one crib.

Hey, Daddy Warbucks, you already bought her the diamond earrings -- that "push present" to thank her for nine months of pregnancy and hours of labor -- but now Mother's Day is approaching. So for the new moms out there, we consulted Bel Bambini, a luxe baby shop in West Hollywood. If it's good enough for Jessica Alba, who is registered there, why not your Baby Mama?
Part hot rod, part stroller, this "Roddler" is a swank ride for the little one. Think custom paint job, an iPod docking station and stereo sound system. The tail lights shine when braking for those traffic jams on Rodeo Drive -- and the stroller even comes with vanity plates. SPOILED, maybe?
Who says diaper bags have to look like quilted, overstuffed totes? A faux-crocodile couture diaper satchel by Mia Bossi has plenty of room and pockets for keys to the Benz, bottles and diapers, plus
People Magazine's photo spread of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's twins Max and Emme revealed their lush and luxurious nursery that included two Bratt Decor Casablanca Cribs in slate, Art 4 Kids' Madison Bedding and an ivory Max Daniel blanket. However, Parents Magazine is up in arms because they are concerned about what they say are major safety hazards in the room:
The pillows, stuffed animals and blankets in the cribs and draped canopies are suffocation hazards
Bows tied onto the crib slats are choking hazards.
The open window doesn't have a window guard.
While it's true that these concerns are valid, I think the editors of Parents are jumping the gun. As we learned with Brooke Burke's nursery for daughter Heaven Rain and Baby Boy Charvet, the room was styled and staged for a beautiful photo shoot. Most likely, all hazards would be removed before the babies are put in the cribs. Also,
