Even babies can benefit from canopy beds! A canopy over a crib can reduce the harshness of light in the room and create a safe feeling for your infant. When using a canopy over a crib, you want it to hang high above the baby like this rather than tucking all the way around the crib like more traditional canopies would.
Add a visual stimulus for baby while creating a romantic ambiance by topping a crib with a canopy. Be sure to gather and secure the material around the crib posts, as shown here, to keep it from falling into baby's sleeping space.
