The room we're going to use for a nursery is really small, so I'm trying to think of space saving ideas and prioritizing on what to buy.

I really like the idea of this: Delta Delaney Crib 'N Changer - Dark Chocolate - Delta - Babies "R" Us

Not necessarily that model specifically, but the idea of a crib/changer combo. I really like that the baby is facing you while you're changing the diaper, as opposed to laying sideways like most changing tables. We had a changing table with DD and I found it awkward to change her on it, and usually just changed her on a blanket on the floor instead. The changing table ended up being a toy shelf. I don't have the luxury of space or spending $$$ on furniture that isn't going to get used, so we're definitely not going that route again.

Does anyone see any reasons why this wouldn't work out? Has anyone ever used one of these types of cribs?

I like it. If I did cribs I'd want something like this. So practical.

I like it as well, we ended up putting a changing pad on top of the dresser to use as a changing station. It worked easily and saved on space as well, if you plan on having a dresser in the nursery!

We've got a dresser that was in the room already, but it's a tall skinny one, so it wouldn't work for changing - otherwise yeah, that's what I'd do.

Yeah I think it's a great idea. Will save you space and it also has storage to keep diapers and anything you need to change baby, close by.

I have one like that for Gabriel... It was nice while they were a baby. But the changer part on mine doesn't ever come off. I think you are supposed to use it as some sort of a bookshelf when you convert it to a toddler bed and I HATE that . So we are getting rid of it to get a regular toddler bed. That and it is really really big and you have to make sure you have enough room to get to the changer. (That is only a problem if you are like us and the bedroom was the size of a closet, lol). It can make arranging the room a little awkward.

Just a different perspective I guess! I don't mean to be so critical lol!
