For the moms who have had previous children would probably know best, not sure!!! I am trying to pick a crib. I am not sure if I want to get a crib that DOES NOT HAVE A DROP GATE/SIDE or get one that 1 side does lower.
Do you always lower your side if you have one like that?
Or do you prefer not to have that or leave it up even if your crib has one?
It would seem like you really don't bend over that much picking the baby up or putting it down. I kinda was trying to practice that at the baby store while trying to decide.
Any advice would be great.

Thanks BAM for the awesome siggy!!

Personally I love my drop down crib. I use it for changing him sometimes (not diaper changes but clothing). It's alot nicer when you don't want to bend or move to much after baby has fallen asleep in your arms. You kinda just want to scootch them in there sorta thing. Sometimes I don't use it but most of the time I do. I think it will be SUPER handy when baby is bigger and the mattress is lower...

This is Brinlee's crib


I *HIGHLY* recommend it, it is WELL worth the money. This crib is AWESOME! Beautiful, sturdy, converts to toddler bed and full size bed.

We have this crib in the Chestnut finish.

Right underneath the photo of the crib, us the "next" button to look through all of the photos to see all of the options & stages.

All of our cribs have had one side that drops down. I left it low when they were tiny then raised it all the way up once they move around. You can also lower it again when they start climbing out before switching to a bed.
But no, I didn't put it up and down every day.

Mine drops down, but i havent started using the drop down part. I just put Stone down, its not to far for me to bend. Im sure i wil have to use it when i drop the mattress down lower, hes only 3 mths old now... when do i need to drop the mattress lower? Anyone know?

Thank you *Kiliki* for my gorgeous siggie!

You need to drop the matress lower when he starts rolling over on a regular basis (IMO). I mean, I wouldn't drop it ALL the way down, but at least to the next level.

Mine with #2 son doesn't drop down, it opens outward, which I didn't like as it took two hands when the drop down I had with #1 son took a foot and one hand.

When #1 son started sitting up on his own, I lowered the mattress to the lowest level, because, before ya know it, they are pulling themselves up!
