Best Convertible Baby Crib

Baby Eco Trends Amish Caspian 4 in 1 Convertible Baby Crib

The Caspian 4 in 1 convertible crib from Baby Eco Trends was very impressive for its versatility. It’s crafted by world-class Amish woodworkers and can transform from crib to toddler bed, to day bed, and then to full bed as your child grows. The wood is incredibly sturdy, withstanding multiple stress tests from full-grown adults. There are zero composite materials in the wood, free of any harmful chemicals or toxins, even with the stained finish which is incredibly smooth. Each crib is custom made to order, so the turnaround times on these cribs is around 6-10 weeks to build, plus additional shipping time – make sure to order in plenty of time. The setup was super easy – Baby Eco Trends provided very detailed instructions for constructing the crib, so it only took a few minutes to complete. Overall, this is a super stylish convertible crib that will last a lifetime for your family!

Best Nursery Collection

Berg Furniture Alpine Nursery Collection

We were blown away by the Alpine Nursery from Berg Furniture for more than just a crib. This crib comes with a matching double dresser and five-drawer chest – perfect for any families that need to outfit their entire nursery. The crib is also convertible to a full size bed, and after converting, the remaining parts make a love seat! The crib and furniture are stained with a dark charcoal color that goes well with tons of different color options for the surrounding room. The full nursery collection comes with a special offer – $200 off when you purchase all three furniture items, plus a completely free toddler guard rail and full bed rails kit. All in, estimated savings for the whole nursery collection comes to $438 – that’s a lot of cash back in your pocket. Curbside delivery is also available for $200, which is a little pricey. Make sure to check their shipping restrictions, which have some limitations in certain states. Update: it looks like Berg Furniture has stopped making these cribs, but some retailers still have them in stock. We are working on finding a good made in the USA replacement and will update y’all when we have one!

Factors We Considered


The durability of your crib is one of the top concerns of new parents – you have to make sure that your crib is sturdy enough to stand up against normal wear and tear. Each of the cribs we feature has gone through extensive stress testing to make sure they are up to our standards. Additionally, we looked for cribs made out of solid wood without any composite materials, which is typically a good indicator of strength. How they construct the crib is also a big factor here and certain configurations are sturdier than others.


Safety is always on the mind of parents, especially when considering where your child is sleeping. We made sure that all of our top choices are made of toxin-free materials and passed the necessary certifications and ASTM standards to be considered 100% safe. Additionally, some products that we chose went through and passed LEED certification. Each of our top picks also passed rigorous manual tests.


We want to make sure you’re getting the best crib for your money. We weeded out several options where we felt like the quality of the crib did not match the price tag.


The versatility of your crib is important, especially since your child is growing at such a rapid pace. All of our top choices are convertible into at least toddler beds, and some options all the way up to full beds. We looked for cribs where railings are easy to adjust, mattress heights can be changed without much effort, and the crib is simply easy to use and put together.


Style is crucial for your new crib, after all, it has to fit with the overall theme of your nursery! We looked for options that were either versatile in color options, or come in colors that are fairly neutral and go well with a large spectrum of colors and designs.
