crib to bed
When we purchased Clara's DaVinci crib last winter, we were enamored with the safety features, sustainably grown wood, non-toxic finish, and spring bottom. But honestly, one of the biggest selling points was that the crib converts into a toddler bed AND further into a twin or full sized bed. Three for the price of one!
I was talking about this at the hospital the other day and one of the nurses said that they didn't buy the conversion kit to their baby's crib a couple of years and now they can't find the rails anywhere! So they cannot convert their crib to a bed after all. She suggested I purchase the additional rails while they are still available (it would be a bummer to want to assemble the bed and not be able to!)
In my search for top rated nursery furniture I found a site that sells cribs (including the one we bought) along with the conversion rails. So we scooped up the rails...and they were cheaper than other places I was looking...(check out WayFair.com)
I was thinking about this tonight as Clara fell asleep in my arms. I placed her verrrrry carefullllllly into her crib....stood there watching her dream.....and got depressed because I know these days are numbered. She will be in a big girl bed before I know it....ready or not.
At least we have the bed.
