Convertible cribs, also known as 2-in-1 cribs have a double function – they can be used both as infant cribs or toddler beds. There are many convertible cribs available on the market. For example a 5-in-1 type is the most practical because your child can use it until adulthood, but it is quite expensive.
Instructions to use a convertible crib
When your baby is less than six months old, a convertible crib is used as a standard infant crib. The most important things to keep in mind when achieving one for your child is to make sure it meets all the safety requirements and that the mattress can be lowered as your baby grows.
If your child is already a toddler and you do not own a convertible crib, you’ll have to buy a toddler bed in order to prevent your baby from climbing the sides of the crib and fall down. But if you have a convertible crib all you have to do is to read the manufacturer’s instructions to transform it into a toddler crib. Owning a convertible crib will also help you save a serious amount of money. Many convertible cribs can also be transformed into normal size beds.
Keep in mind
It is very important to inform yourself very well before buying a convertible crib for your baby because you may achieve one that cannot be used for too much time or that presents no additional parts to transform it into a bed. Try to achieve a popular model and all the necessary parts for the transition bed at the same time.
Convertible cribs are very practical due to their multiple functions. Besides this, they are an investment for the future, thus helping you save a lot of money. At the same time, you can paint the crib’s frame when your baby grows or if you want to change the style of the room.
