There is no rule that says baby cribs have to be rectangular, In fact some parents prefer round baby cribs for a number of reasons. One of the biggest reasons that parents consider round baby cribs is that aesthetically they are a little unusual and certainly very stylish. Another is that sometimes a round baby crib can fit into an oddly shaped corner of a room where a more traditional rectangular baby crib could not, a boon for those parents who have decided that Baby will be sharing their room for a while before graduating to their own nursery.
Some parents also feel that round cribs for babies are a little safer, as they have no corners or edges for Baby to potentially bang themselves on as they get older and more mobile.
There are downsides to choosing a round baby crib though. Round baby cribs are harder to find and usually more expensive. You will also have to find baby crib sets that are suitable for use with a round crib, which can limit your choice to some extent.
