All about Convertible Baby Crib reviews

If you have done your research you already know that the Da Vinci Kalani crib is by far the best selling crib in the market.

If you haven't done your research you are probably wondering what a 4-in-1 crib is??

1. What is a Convertible Baby Crib?

As the name suggests, it is a baby crib that can at a later date "convert" to a toddler bed or a daybed or sometimes even a full sized bed, hence the 2-in-1, 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 differentiation. 

However, I would recommend that you read the product descriptions before you purchase as many times the conversion kits are sold separately. 

2. Do I Want a Convertible Crib?

This is the next question you need to ask yourself. I presume you have read our article on Baby Cribs, which clearly outlines the different types of crib furniture available today.

Say Yes 

  • if you want something that is cost -effective in the long run.
  • if you want a bed that will grow with your kid.

Say No

  • if you are not looking for an expensive crib furniture right now. (going over budget)
  • if you plan to use it for future kids.

3. Convertible Baby Crib Styles

Once you have decided that a convertible crib is the way you wish to go, you need to choose the style that would best complement your baby nursery.

Modern Cribs

If contemporary decor is your style with clean lines and a chic style, you have many choices including some that offer storage, adjustable mattress support and more.

Traditional Cribs

For simple, classic beauty you have to go traditional. The traditional crib furniture comes in many designs and finishes from elegant white to simple natural to richer tones of oak or espresso.

Crib and Changer Combo Sets

You couldn't possibly buy a crib and not buy a changing table for all those long diaper duty hours.

Buying a crib and changer set sounds like an excellent idea, especially if space is an issue. 

And if you do a crib review you will find that parents love these sets as the changer can often be detached and used as a night stand or for storage as your child grows.

Luxurious Designer Cribs

For those parents who are in the 'no-expenses spared' category, I would recommend the designer cribs.

Although I have no wish to go that far back in age, the Chelsea Lifetime crib is one that makes me wish I was a baby again. Or gobble it up like a very fancy cupcake.

And if you were to take a look around (check out the Beloved Crib - so worth the $4150 it costs), there are many mouth watering delicious cribs just waiting to be picked up.

With their intricate designs, master craftsmanship and high quality construction, your baby nursery will radiate luxury and sophistication.

Canopy Cribs

Most canopy cribs are iron cribs rather than wooden ones. Of course, the Camelot Crib featured above easily falls into the category of Designer cribs as well.

If you are keen on a canopy but don't wish to spend over your budget, you could always opt for a dome canopy to be hung over the cradle.

As always, safety before beauty. So please ensure that the canopy is strongly adhered to the ceiling and the canopy cover is out of baby's reach.

Mini / Portable Cribs

When you think of a Kalani crib, the normal size crib is what usually comes to mind. But did you know that they also have a mini version?

Why would you want a mini/portable crib?

These are perfect,

  • if space is limited and you have other crib furniture to add to the nursery.
  • for grandparents who look forward to having their grand-kid over.
  • for travel inspired moms and dads, since many of the portable cribs can be folded to make travel easy.

Eco-friendly Cribs
