2-in-1 Crib to Toddler Bed Models
Your most basic choice in convertible cribs is a model that changes from a baby crib or infant bed to a toddler bed or baby daybed. Although you’ll also find models that convert from a crib directly to a twin bed, you may still wish to use a toddler bed for larger active babies that can climb out of a crib, but aren’t yet ready for a twin bed.
3-in-1 Crib Toddler & Twin Bed Models
Cribs with three possible configurations may skip one of the toddler bed stages or may not convert past a daybed to a final adolescent sized bed. You’ll likely still want to use a toddler safety rail for a period of time, so read product descriptions carefully to ensure you’ve got all the form and function you need from your choice of crib.
4-in-1 Crib, Toddler & Twin Bed Models
Convertible cribs with four stages change from a baby crib to a toddler bed with a safety rail, a toddler daybed without rail, and finally into a twin bed. 4-in-1 cribs are some of the most popular convertible models, but also require the most additional parts, including the toddler rail and twin rails.
