1. Convertible Baby Cribs
You may have heard the term “convertible crib” but weren’t quite sure what that meant. It’s a term used to describe baby cribs that can convert to bigger beds. Through toddler years you can convert the crib to a toddler bed or day bed. Through teen years you can convert the crib to a twin or full size bed. The fact that you pay one price and get 2 to 4 beds makes these cribs a great investment. Convertible baby cribs all offer different types of conversions. A convertible crib can also save you time since you’ll never need to buy your child another bed…ever! A few of my favorite convertible cribs are listed below.

(toddler rail is usually included) For the full size conversion you’ll use the crib’s head/footboard, plus full size conversion rails and full size mattress. (mattress and rail are usually sold separately)
