I don't know why but I'm having the hardest time ever deciding on a crib. I think I really like the ones with a solid panel back, but most of them are so expensive and the one that's pretty affordable on Amazon is not getting the best reviews.

Would you all mind showing me the cribs you've picked out or already have? I really need some help deciding! Go figure that this is the thing that keeps me hung up for weeks.

We're picking up ours this week. But I don't really have a pic, it's a used one from a friend...

I bought this one a while back. It was my first big purchase. I got it with the reversible mattress so one side is infant and one side is toddler. It does not require extra parts to put it to toddler size and it is just a headboard so no rails needed if you want to convert to a full size bed. I love black furniture and it matches with my bed set, too. I wanted a $300 one but decided Id rather pay half that. This also has good reviews.

I also bought with the Graco Sarah changing table and I put that together already.. It looks soo nice!

The one we used with our oldest boys was a used one from our neighbors. It was white and we didn't really think about it at all. It was free, you know? But we gave it away when we thought we weren't going to have more, so now we need to buy one and for some reason it's really hard to pick one. Can you take a pic and show me the one you're getting? I'd still love to see it.

I really like that one, Melissa! I agree about the money. We were hoping to spend no more than somewhere around $200. Little Elliot is going to love his crib. Thank you for sharing!

Ours is in chocolate, but the crib is almost identical. Good luck!

Joy, I love the solid sides! Do you have any complaints about it?

I was looking at a few that had the changing table attached. Does that come off when you are ready to to transition to a toddler bed?

That's a really pretty one, too! I think that's one I've been considering actually. Looks like the people who have bought it really love it. Have you already put it together?

We have this crib. It's lovely and I still really like it. My only complaint would be that they rail on the front is so thick that many crib accessories don't work well with it (bumpers on the highest setting).. Or because of the sloped sides (ie. mobiles). I think I only cared about that while my first was young - now we go bumper-less and got rid of the mobile.

We also had this crib while both my boys were in cribs. We've had it in the basement for a year now, but just moved it over to my parents house for the new baby to use when we come to visit (since we're moving out of town, but anticipate some extended visits). It's quite a bit cheaper than the Bonavita, but I have no complaints about it.

Both of these are really nice! Thank you for the links. I'm bookmarking them.

I have! It's very solidly built, and really pretty. It's a little bit lower to the ground than the crib we had for DS (the legs are shorter; the height of the sides up from the mattress is the normal safe height).
I like it for now. I'll let you know if I have complaints once the babies come.
(I'm trying to upload a picture of my nursery so you can see the height difference in cribs. It's only about 4 inches. Sorry if the photo doesn't work. Lol)

It is all set up and I LOVE it. I was worried it would be too showy, but it isn't. The curves are subtle and it looks great.

We're moving before he comes so we're waiting to buy a crib, I think. I know that I want something natural colored this time though. Our current crib is white and I like it but it doesn't work with the theme, in my head.

I have the Jenny Lind crib. We got it used for Haeden and my MIL had it at her house and just gave it back. It's probably not the style you're looking for, but I love it. I think it has a vintagey look to it and it's right up my alley. I really do like some of the other cribs the girls have though, I just don't want to spend the money. lol

We have the crib that converts to toddler, then either a full or twin (cant remember) with attached changing table with drawers in the front and shelves off to the side. A con to the attached changer is that it isn't very big. If I had the room etc I would probably go with something different. I use the couch and floor etc anyways, but for those times I need or want the actual table, after the first few months it is no good. Baby kicks himself up and bonks his head, or gets a flailing foot trapped under the 'safety' bar.
