Anyone have a convertible crib? Would you suggest them?

I was looking at convertible cribs and think that in the long run it would be more convenient since it can be made into a toddler bed and full size for when they are older. Would you suggest this kind of crib or not?

  • I like ours. My son never slept in a toddler bed, but we have his as a headboard now.

  • we got one and i like, and i don't think ours looks girly at all. it just depends on the style. And when our son does go into a big bed we will probably get him a different bed, we did for our daughter. We went with a slightly more expensive and elaborate one when our daughter out grew the crib. But then we reused the crib for our son, and will reuse the crib again if we have another baby, but when all the kids are to big for a toddler bed if none of them want it, we will use the head board for our guest bed.

  • I don't see the sense in doing that if you're going to have more kids - either you end up having to buy a big bed anyway, or you have to buy another crib.

  • I didn't ask what made sense, I was just asking people who HAVE THEM if they liked them or not before I bought one. I think they seem to be worth it.
