New parents of today are often looking for furniture that they won't have to store or dispose of when their child gets just a little bit older. However with thousands of convertible and "grow with your baby" cribs available, it can be even harder to find the right one. To help, we've created a breakdown of our favorites - the most beautiful and best loved convertible cribs currently on the market. Most of the cribs come complete with mattress, but the included mattress is usually not the softest so you may want to purchase another, more comfortable mattress in the appropriate size. If you're interested in a particular crib, clicking on the image will take you shopping (the really good news is that Amazon ships these cribs for free)!

Dream on Me Liberty 4-in-1 Crib
This adorable crib has a slightly rustic feel. Note that there are not hardware covers so you can see the screw heads. Placing safety over beauty, the covers were omitted because they pose a choking hazard (but the look may not be aesthetically appealing to you). It also can be converted into a toddler bed with a safety rail and, later, a full sized bed.

Graco Shelby Classic 4 in 1 Convertible Crib
This elegant crib allows easy access to your baby from either side, and is gorgeous to boot. It's top of the line and it shows. It's easy to put together, easy to convert into a bed, and looks fabulous (my personal favorite finish was cherry).

Athena Naomi 4 in 1 Crib
This beautiful crib has the same advantages as the Graco Shelby but is a couple hundred dollars less. That savings can buy you a lot of diapers! The disadvantage is that the finish may not be as durable. However, if you aren't too concerned about a little wear and tear it's a beautiful style at an incredible price.

This awesome crib is the emperor of multitasking furniture. It converts to a toddler bed, daybed, and full size bed just like all the others. Its advantage comes from having a changing table and three drawers attached! If you're looking for ultimate efficiency, or simply have a smaller nursery, this combination is a dream come true.
