Choosing a Convertible Crib on a Budget

If you’re researching convertible cribs under $100 but are unsure where to look and which brands are the best, then this short guide should point you in the right direction!

The convertible crib has become a popular choice for parents who are looking to buy just one piece of furniture that can be re-purposed as your newborn grows into a toddler and beyond. Babies grow up so quickly that it really makes economic sense to choose this type of crib.

But which should you choose? Firstly, decide how many purposes you want to use it for. As a guideline, if you see on the label ‘2-in-1’, it will mean that the crib will convert two times, usually from a crib into a toddler bed. A ‘3-in-1’ bed will mean the crib can be re-purposed in three different ways, usually from a crib to a toddler bed then to either a single bed, daybed, bench or even a headboard for another bed.

For a top-of-the-range crib you can expect to pay over $300, but if this is way over your budget, don’t worry as there are still some good quality convertible cribs under $100. The Dream On Me Classic 2 in 1 Convertible Stationary Side Crib will give you good value for money at $99. It’s a ‘2-in-1’ so it will convert from crib to toddler bed and is available in six different colours of wood so you’ll be sure to find a colour that matches your nursery decor. It’s also on wheels which will be handy for cleaning underneath.

If you’re set on getting a ‘3-in-1’ convertible crib, then for an extra $40 there is the Nursery 101 Sidney Convertible Crib that will convert into a full size headboard, so you won’t need to part with it even after your child has grown out of the bed. Genius! Priced at $139.99, it’s available in white wood and comes with a one year warranty. You can buy the mattress and frame separately later on when you want to convert into a headboard and the range also has a matching dressing table.
