Baby Product Review: Dex Safe Lift Universal Crib Wedge


We used the Dex Safe Lift Universal Crib Wedge when we transitioned Asher from the RockNPlay to his crib. I was wary of how he would transition from such an elevated angle to a flat crib. If you are struggling to transition your baby from the RockNPlay, then you might want to consider this wedge.

Here is the basic description of the product, courtesy of Amazon.About the Product

  • Universal crib wedge elevates baby’s head and torso at a 12° incline
  • Fits all cribs and toddler beds
  • Easy to clean waterproof cover and non skid bottom
  • Flame retardant foam with hypoallergenic cover
  • Helps reduce nasal congestion – especially important during cold and flu season

PROS to using this wedge:
*Elevation is slight enough that if your baby is little and not too wiggly, this incline will keep them from rolling all over.
*Asher is a spitter, so having the waterproof cover was nice
*I felt like it was just soft enough 🙂
*Fits perfectly in crib under sheet. We did not have any fitting issues.
*May help if your baby has reflux, but I would guess it probably wouldn’t be inclined enough.

CONS to using this wedge:
*Price–I might be stingy, but I felt like $24.99 was a little pricey for my liking. Making it $19.99 would make it seem more reasonable. I know, picky, I am.
*Once your baby becomes more wiggly, he will most likely roll or slide his way off. This eventually happened with Asher.
*This is yet another product you may have to wean your baby from…

For my peace of mind, I was happy to use this wedge when we transitioned Asher from the RockNPlay. I would say we used this wedge for about a month, which when you think about how much time your baby spends in his crib as a newborn, you might find it worth it. You could definitely use this longer than we did if your baby doesn’t squirm around as much. We found that once Asher really began to wiggle about, the wedge lost it’s effectiveness and created new problems for us. By the time we took it out of his crib, I felt like he was well used to his crib and was comfortable without it. Happy Trails!
