Although nothing screams baby like setting up a crib, shopping for and choosing baby cribs can be exciting, time-consuming, and overwhelming all at the same time. It may be be made easier, though, by comparing the best cribs with the best features.

Dream On Me Violet 7 in 1 Convertible Life Style Crib
Dream on Me also makes one of the most versatile cribs on the market. The 7-in-1 Convertible Lifestyle Crib can be adjusted from a crib to a toddler bed, daybed, youth or full bed. The youth bed and full size bed each have two different setup options. The side rails have a unique, curvy design at the rail tops.

Each of the five cribs is made with toxin free material, can be converted to bigger beds and comes in a variety of wood finishes. However, the DaVinci Kalani 4-in-1 is the best baby crib to buy. The use of sustainable materials and the Greenguard Cold certification help ensure a safer environment. The heavier weight provides a solid baby crib, and a safe and sturdy bed as the child grows.
