That’s the same crib my daughter has but in cherry. It’s been great so far. The only problem I have had with it is that some of the screws has gotten stripped and needed to be replaced but we did move and disassemble/reassemble it. I recently took off the side and changed it into the daybed and it’s been great. I often lay down on it with her when she wakes up at night and it supports us both with no give (I weigh 170 and she weighs ~30). The initial assembly was fairly easy and I was able to do *most* of it myself while 7 months pregnant! Overall, I would recommend it.

ETA: I would recommend also getting the plastic to put on the rails. My daughter was a chewer and scraped off some of the stain on the side that we didn’t put the plastic on. With white it wouldn’t show as much, but just for the little teeth! I think it was called gummyrails? It was from BRU.

We have one of the graco cribs (Lauren I think). I really like it. It was easy to put together and looks great in the nursery. It also is a good size. Some of those really expensive cribs seems so much bigger which I didn’t really like.

@SecretName:

Hey! Graco Lauren is one of the ones I’m leaning towards. I know it has TONS of good reviews and considered Best Budget Crib per Baby Bargains.

How do you feel about the construction? Does it seem sturdy? Long lasting?

I would like to see it in person but I think it might be hard to find it locally.

@miss-spunkin: I saw online that the Graco sarah is currently $99 at target so thats even cheaper than you thought. But that might  be online price.

We have Graco Lauren. Seems totally fine to me- perfectly sturdy, wasn’t hard to put together, etc. I mean, it doesn’t look like a fancy piece of furniture, but I’d honestly have no desire to upgrade. I have no complaints.

@Lozza:

Thanks for the input! I have NO desire to spend $400+ on a crib so I love the price point of the Lauren! I actually really like the look of the Lauren. There’s another I like more but it’s twice the price! Embarassed

We have the DaVinci Parker, but it is not set up yet so I can’t give a review. I liked the drop front on it.

Ours is plenty sturdy. My husband made sure everything was nice and tight. I think it will serve her fine as a crib and toddler bed if needed. We were not worried about it being a piece of furniture we invested in since most all seem to chip or get scratched over time. For $100 we could even just buy another one for our secon child if needed.  The one thing that I didn’t care for was the matching graco changing tables. They always seemed really cheap and unstable when we saw them in the stores. We were able to find another rand that matched the graco just find that we love.
