    I wouldnt say white has to be a girl! You are maybe just thinking that as the white cot is dressed in girls bedding. If it was boys bedding it would still look lovely!

    I think both are lovely - it would depend on what else is in the baby's room. White is easier to match if you have some other pieces of random furniture - or are you going for a complete package in which case black would maybe be too much??

    I prefer the white - you could easily paint it in a couple years!!:flower:

    see I forgot to mention that both convert to tottler bed, day bed and then double bed, and I think the white is too country looking to be a boy bed (maybe okay for crib but I can't see it as a bed with spiderman sheets in a few years! but I can see it as a girls bed later down the road because I love it!) I think the black one would be a good actual bed for either gender. but just my oppinion, DH kind of agrees with you guys that white is more gender neutral.

    I prefer the white one and as others have said you could always paint it later on.

    I love the white one, but then I am biased as we've used white furniture for our nursery! I find it the nicest because it freshens and brightens up the room! And any bedding looks great!

    Personally I don't like black with other furniture and I thunk all black furniture is a bit depressing in a nursery.

    I am partial to dark wood furniture. Not black but we are looking for a dark cherry wood. I think the white is cute for a girls nursery but it sort of looks cheaper (sorry) and as you said, may not suit the child as it grows and u change it to a full bed. Especially a boy. I would go with the dark one, it looks more classy and expensive and you can choose the bedding for either sex. Pinks and whites will dress it up adorably for a little girl.

    The white one is absolutely gorgeous! If Hallie was a boy I wanted a white crib and nautical bedding/theme. Unfortunately OH just says hell no to a white crib period. Hahah

    I love the black one. We have a black one for our daughter and will get another black for our second. We just bought nice bright happy bedding and decor. The room never looked depressing or dark.

    I like the "sydney" black one. I think it would work for either boy or girl and so you can also use it for a second child in the future.

    I do tend to lean more towards black furniture because that's my style and what i have in my house. But you can't go wrong with either one. :)

    The crib is ending up being the hardest purchase for us too.
