Convertible Crib Guide


What's the difference between 2-in-1, 3-in-1, or 4-in-1 cribs?



Convertible cribs offer new parents a flexible option. If you could buy a crib that turns into a toddler bed, wouldn’t you? How about a crib that turns into a toddler bed and then a full size bed? Today’s convertible cribs do just that – they adapt as needed with only a few modifications like extra rails, or in the case of a twin or full size bed, a new mattress.

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.
