Convertible Cribs: This type of crib for a baby turns from a crib into a toddler bed and is a great addition to the nursery. Most common convertible cribs are 2-in-1, 3-in-1, and 4-in-1. Purchasing a crib that grows with your child is a practical way to get some extra value for your investment. They also tend to be heavy duty so that they can support larger mattresses if needed.
Crib with Changing Table Combo: Purchasing a crib and changer combo means you buy a baby crib that has a small changing table attached. If you know you have a smaller nursery room, this crib is a great way to maximize your room layout since shelving and drawer space come with it. A key difference from a convertible crib is that a crib and change table combo does not become a toddler bed and grow with your baby.
Portable & Mini Cribs: Depending on the style, you can travel with some portable cribs. For traveling parents, this is a very helpful feature. Also, if you are working with limited space in your nursery, small cribs help a great deal. This will depend on the size of your baby; however, mini cribs have fit babies until that 18 month to 24 month milestone before.
Nursery Sets: Nursery sets typically come in 2 pieces or 3 pieces with a crib, dresser and/or changing table. The majority of sets on Wayfair are between $250 and $500 with options outside of this price range as well.
