    I am just curious what cribs you all are looking at or have already purchased. I don't want to spend a ton, but I want something sturdy and of course safe. Baby Cache (munire) is a BRU brand that gets good reviews in the Baby Bargains book. So we are looking at this crib, https://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4358801. I am having a hard time committing to a crib. My sister registered for the $$ stokke sleepi (and she got it!) I really like the crib but I don't like the price tag on it. I would feel a little odd putting it on a registry.

    In my opinion the Stokee cribs are just not worth the price....especially since they aren't convertible are they?

    I think you can convert it to a toddler bed, but that's it. My boss (I'm a nanny) has it and only used it as a crib and bought a regular kids bed after she grew out of it.

    I have to agree, I just don't think they are worth the price! I can't see spending over $500 for them.

    We are getting a Babee Tenda both for crib and for feeding table. They are convertible and cost $500 each. The crib converts to a toddler bed and to a daybed. The table converts to a craft table and has a blackboard and I think a whiteboard. The seat also converts to a swing.

    I can't find any cribs I like under $200. I just can't stomach spending more than that on a bed that wont be slept in for that long. I've been looking at used cribs, but I know I need to be careful about those. I really loved the Eco Babi crib on clearance for $180 at JC Penney, but it's no longer available! I waited too long to order it and it's gone! So I'm just looking out for another "perfect" crib and will jump on it when I find it.

    You could get a convertible one that will be used for much longer if you don't like the idea of spending so much on something that won't be used for very long. There are plenty that can turn into a toddler bed and then even a regular twin bed that can be used until they go off to college!

    We bought a convertible bed, and all the extra furniture to match it. It's a little pricey, but our plan is to use it as a permanent bedroom set for 20+ years. It's not in the picture, but we also bought the little nightstand that's available.

    Quick question for you...I have looked at this set and was going to purchase..but what guard rails are you using for the changing tower? Are you just setting the changing pad on the top and not worrying about the rails? I'm just afraid to do that...if you bought a topper please let me know where. Thanks
