What Is There To Know About Convertible Cribs

By Billy Delaney

Convertible cribs are an option that is now available to new parents or those with a baby. These items seem to be turning up everywhere as more and more seem to be available by the day. The product itself provides people with a choice over the stodgy, old baby crib and has a number of advantages over them. Here, we take a closer look at these cribs and their specifics to help you better decide if they might be right for you.

There are a number of different options now available in convertible cribs. This is great news for customers. You can find different conversion options where it can convert into 1, 2, or 3 other items beyond the original crib. This can be very helpful as you can choose options that you know you will use.

Also, you can find a large number of different colors. Many manufacturers will let you choose from 3 to 5 different colors. This is great because it makes it much easier to fit it into any baby room regardless of what the parents have in mind.

You will also find a wide range in prices. This is also good news for customers as they won’t have to spend top dollar to get a quality convertible crib. There are a number of value buys that are very affordable and still offer a quality crib. One way they are able to do this is in the use of softwood instead of hardwood. In the past, one would have to sacrifice stability and durability but improvements in the treatment of softwoods has helped make softwood options far more stable and durable. Plus, you can take steps to curb the issue of scratches. All this adds up to creating some good reasons why people should opt for softwood convertible cribs.

An area where you will see some variance in the industry is over what is used for the mattress. Some companies will slats or MDF panels. However, others will use mattress springs. We personally prefer the latter as they do not have the issue of potentially sliding or moving around like slats or MDF panels do. We suggest this is something you look for specifically when considering different convertible cribs.

Another area where companies will diverge on practices is their focus on environmental issues. We feel it is important that you choose companies that have taken care to reduce the amount of chemicals that may be used in the treatment of the wood and in production of these cribs. We suggest you look for companies that have a strong environmental focus as they will reduce the risk your child could be exposed to any dangerous chemicals. Also, you will have the knowledge that you are taking a step to help an environmentally friendly company that can only help all of us.

By keeping all these different things in mind, you should have a better understanding of what exactly are convertible cribs and what things you should be looking for when researching them for purchase.
