Although nothing screams baby like setting up a crib, shopping for and choosing baby cribs can be exciting, time-consuming, and overwhelming all at the same time. It is always a good idea to compare the best cribs and read the actual customer reviews.
Stork Craft Tuscany 4-in-1 Convertible Crib
On the Stork Craft Tuscany 4-in-1 Convertible crib, all four sides of the crib are stationery, for added safety. Customers were impressed with the durability and sturdiness of the crib, and the fact that the conversion kit to a toddler bed and daybed comes with the crib. However, the chemical smell from the painted materials was hard to ignore. The smell goes away in a few days, for the most part.
Dream On Me, Classic 3 in 1 Convertible Crib
Another crib that features rails that do not drop down is the Classic Convertible Crib by Dream on Me. The locking wheels are a nice safety feature and make the bed easy to move, but the screws have the tendency to come loose when the bed is moved. Customers also felt that the bed could only be converted to a toddler bed.
Dream On Me Violet 7 in 1 Convertible Life Style Crib
Dream on Me also makes one of the most versatile cribs on the market. The 7-in-1 Convertible Lifestyle Crib can be adjusted from a crib to a toddler bed, daybed, youth or full bed. The youth bed and full size bed each have two different setup options. The side rails have a unique, curvy design at the rail tops. If you are looking for a bolder choice than the usual wood finishes, this crib also comes in royal blue. Customers seemed to like the different color options of this bed.
Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail
The Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 convertible crib has a spindle design that allows you to easily see your baby from different angles. Customers liked the simple design and that it could be adjusted to 4 different mattress levels. However, the lowest level is very low to the floor and hard to vacuum under.
DaVinci Kalani 4-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail
One of the best cribs from the Kalani collection is the DaVinci Kalani 4-in-1 Convertible Crib with toddler rails. Customers gave rave reviews for the bed’s sturdiness, and use of sustainable materials. Customers like the Greenguard Gold Certification, verifying that it had been tested and met strict chemical emissions tests. However, the soft wood makes it easier to ding it and scratch it.
Overall, the four cribs have many of the same features, such as converting to bigger beds and they each come in a variety of wood finishes. However, customers revealed the DaVinci Kalani 4-in-1 may be the best baby crib to buy. The use of sustainable materials and the Greenguard Cold certification received high marks. The bed is a solid baby crib and sturdy bed as the child grows
