I think it depends on what style you are looking for.. do you like more modern or more traditional?

We like more modern stuff and we read great things about the gulliver crib from Ikea and that is what we ended up getting.


We got the one in birch and it is very solid and the mattress adjusts to two different heights. It can also turn into a toddler bed (but not a twin).

I know younghouselove.com bought their crib from the baby mod line at walmart and they seem to really like it.

@troubled: My dad said having the adjustable mattress level is the best so you don’t strain your back always lifting the baby out of a deep crib. But we’ve just started looking so I don’t have any recommendations!

We’re definitely getting a 4-in-1 or 7-in-1 style. It just makes sense.

Yeah, I can definitely see the appeal of a crib that turns into a nice twin bed frame. Several of my friends have those and as their kids have gotten bigger they work well for their “big kid” rooms. We have a nice bedframe that we want to use in our son’s room when he gets bigger, so we weren’t as concerned with that.

We looked at a couple different DaVinci cribs. We went with the Piedmont, which is a 4 in 1. The mattress adjusts to 4 different heights by only adjusting a couple bolts. It’s not a drop side (we didn’t even look at those). The crib is very solid and we couldn’t be happier. We got it on sale for about $225, so it really was reasonable for a very nice crib. Our runner up was the kalani, also by DaVinci, which I know had a lot of good reviews too.
