On the one hand, Blue Ivy Carter is a newborn baby and should probably be left alone by the media until she does something noteworthy, or at least masters the ability to grab her toes. On the other hand, she's already been featured on a Jay-Z song, so maybe it's not so bad that we're obsessed with every tiny detail of her life thus far. Today's big news comes from Us Weekly, which reports that little Blue could be sleeping in a Lucite crib at her parents' Tribeca apartment.
According to the tabloid, Beyoncé bought the NurseryWorks Vetro crib in November while shopping with her sister Solange and mom Tina "at an NYC boutique." A handful of New York stores carry NurseryWorks products, but we're guessing the boutique is Giggle, which stocks the crib in question. It's definitely fabulous, but isn't it going to wind up covered in fingerprints?
