Does your crib have the changing station attached?

I am not far along yet and have plenty of time to make these decisions, but I really like this one particular crib. The Cape Cod from Sorelle:

I went to a store to check it out and the sales lady advised against it because babies apparently can climb up on there and get hurt.

What have your experiences been? Thanks!

  • I don't but I just saw a really great crib online that had that & then it turned into a twin size bed & the attached changing station removed to become a night table. I would buy it in a minute but I already have a crib. I also think that as long as you consistently adjust the crib level as necessary then the child will not be able to climb up & if they can do that at the lowest crib setting then they could probably climb out of the crib themselves anyway & it's time to switch to a bed.

  • We got a really basic crib and the floor was our changing table. My thought was that baby can't fall off the floor. ;)

  • Honestly in my opinion the only thing the attatched changing table was good for was for my son's naps when he was a newborn. They are too low and they hurt my back. I'd just buy a cheap separate changing table with wheels because they tend to be higher up plus the wheels makes it portable so you only need one for a house. Personally though, I am building one that attaches to the wall and folds down when I need it and folds up and fastens to the wall when I don't need it.
