The Best Baby Cribs (2023 Reviews)

The 20 Top-Rated Cribs for a Safe, Secure Slumber for Your Baby

Deciding where you put your biggest treasure to sleep is likely a decision you’ll want to spend time looking into before making a purchase. Among other possible concerns, you’ll need to consider how long you’ll want your child to have this bed, what kind of space you have for the crib, your budget, and the design of the room in order to choose a crib that’s just the right fit. Plus, before you actually have the baby, you can still fantasize that getting the right crib will help your baby (and you) sleep through the night. (And good luck to you.)

We’ve rounded up 20 top-rated baby cribs, based on design, customer reviews, and other considerations. Our picks are listed alphabetically below for easy reference. All ratings are based on Amazon and are current at the time of this publication.

Union 3-in-1 Convertible Crib, Grey Finish

Current Rating: 4.5

Key Features:

  • Crib converts into daybed and toddler bed
  • 4 height adjustments
  • Solid New Zealand pine wood construction
  • Meets ASTM international and U.S. CPSC safety standards

This convertible crib is a great one for your baby to transition into toddler-hood. It comes in 5 fun colors and uses lead free, non-toxic, phthalate-free paint so you won’t have to worry when baby starts teething. At only $105 for the crib and $155 for the crib and mattress set, this is a great economical crib for your precious little one.

Baby Relax Emma 2-in-1 Crib and Changing Table Combo, Gray

Key Features:

  • Converts into daybed
  • 4 height adjustments
  • Sturdy wood construction
  • Meets JPMA, CPSC (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) and ASTM (American Society for Testing and Manufacturing) safety standards

This crib and changing table combo is perfect to use as a quick-change station. With open shelving, you can store everything from the baby monitor to a wipe warmer or just pack it completely full of diapers. You’re going to go through them all anyway, and the extra boundary of a drawer is just an extra step sleepy you won’t love.

Carter’s by DaVinci Taylor 4-in-1 Convertible Crib, Grey and White

Key Features:

  • Made of solid sustainable New Zealand pine wood
  • Safe, non-toxic finish
  • 1-year warranty
  • Meets ASTM international and U.S. CPSC safety standards

This convertible crib has 4 height adjustments, and with separately purchased kits, it can be turned into a daybed, toddler bed, and full-sized bed, as well. At under $200, this is a great value for a great full-sized convertible crib.

Childcraft Redmond 4-in-1 Convertible Crib- Coach Cherry

Key Features:

  • Converts from crib to toddler bed, day bed, and full-sized bed
  • 2 adjustable heights
  • Solid pine wood construction
  • Strong metal mattress support

Our favorite part of this crib is the toddler bed into which it converts. Unlike virtually every other toddler bed, this has a rail on both sides with an opening to crawl through in the center – because toddlers don’t have time for your preconceived notions on which side of the bed is the head and where they should put their feet. This will save your toddler from rolling out of his bed as often. (Because if a toddler wants to do that, he’s going to – rail or no rail. But at least this will prevent the accidental roll-outs.)

DaVinci Union 4-in-1 Convertible Crib in White, Greenguard Gold Certified

Key Features:

  • Converts from crib to toddler bed, day bed, and full-sized bed
  • Solid sustainable New Zealand pine wood
  • Meets ASTM international and U.S. CPSC safety standards
  • Greenguard Gold Certified

This crib is a wonderful bed for a little one and an even better crib for a toddler who wants to crawl out of bed. The extra little anti-crawl bar does a great job of keeping your kid in bed for longer than he may have tolerated otherwise. And the longer they’re trapped in their crib, the longer you will be able to go to the bathroom with the door closed.

DaVinci Jenny Lind Stationary Crib With Toddler Bed Conversion Kit, Lagoon

Key Features:

  • Converts from crib to toddler and day bed
  • 4 adjustable heights
  • 100% solid sustainable New Zealand pine wood
  • Meets ASTM international and U.S. CPSC safety standards

This crib is a colorful spin on the classic baby bed design that you may remember from when you were young. You’ll have 9 colors to chose from, and it comes with a 1-year warranty, too. The wood slats are carved to mimic the same style and flourish of the vintage look, and you won’t have to worry about the new color options because it’s painted with non-toxic, lead- and phthalate-free paint. And did you see the wheels? You won’t struggle rearranging the nursery with this crib.

Delta Children Bellevue 3-in-1 Convertible Crib, Bianca with Ebony

Key Features:

  • Converts from crib to toddler and daybed
  • 3 height adjustments
  • 35-lb max capacity
  • Meets or exceeds government and ASTM safety standards
  • JPMA certified to meet or exceed all safety standards set by the CPSC & ASTM

This convertible crib has a modern feel in its design, and with its two-tone color scheme it will match a wide array of style choices in your nursery. The toddler rail and daybed rail are each sold separately but once purchased, the transition and assembly from one configuration to the other is a straightforward one.

Delta Children Canton 4-in-1 Convertible Crib, Espresso Cherry

Key Features:

  • Converts from crib to toddler bed, day bed, and full-sized bed
  • 5 color choices on solid wood
  • JPMA certified to meet or exceed all safety standards set by the CPSC & ASTM

We love that this baby crib looks just like a traditional sleigh bed, and we love even more that when your baby ages into a full sized bed, that’s just what it will turn into. You’ll need to purchase the full-sized bed rails separately, but they’re currently $90. If that – on top of the $220 price of the crib – is all it takes to have a quality bed for your child for the rest of his life? Worth it.

Delta Children Portable Mini Crib, White

Key Features:

  • 2 height adjustments
  • Folds flat for portability and storage
  • 4 wheels
  • JPMA certified to meet or exceed all safety standards set by the CPSC and ASTM

This is a great crib for a smaller nursery – or just a baby whose parents know a baby doesn’t really need a huge bed for all 20″ of baby. And when you consider that some babies begin crawling out of the crib at less than a year old (and give their parents heart attacks), you may consider the deal at $120 too good to pass up, especially if you plan to keep your newborn in a bassinet in your bedroom.

Dream On Me Violet 4 in 1 Convertible Mini Crib, Black

Key Features:

  • 3 height adjustments
  • Solid pine wood construction
  • Meets CPSC and ASTM standards

This crib is great value both with regards to its cost and in its style. For just one price, you still have the ability to convert this mini crib to a toddler bed and day bed – and without a lot of unnecessary space taken up on a full-sized crib. And the style is much more fun than the standard box of bars a lot of cribs have. This is a great option for a confined space or possibly for a grandparent’s house where baby will only stay part-time.

Dream On Me Violet 7 in 1 Convertible Life Style Crib, Black

Key Features:

  • Crib converts into toddler bed, daybed, and full-sized bed
  • 4 height adjustments
  • Solid pine wood
  • Meets CPSC and ASTM standards

This is the full version of the mini crib listed above and would be a great option if you plan on buying the above for the grandparents’ or sitter’s homes. Although getting two cribs may be a pricey option, with these two cribs, it’s not actually that much more than buying a new pack-and-play with the crib. And once you figure out the operation and assembly of one, you’ll have the other down, too. And a little bit of consistency goes a long way for the comfort of baby. (And comfortable babies sleep better.) The full-sized crib is only about $20 more than the mini, and you can buy the kits to turn this into a full-sized bed, as well.

Evolur Santa Fe 5-in-1 Convertible Crib, Storm Grey

Key Features:

  • Crib converts into toddler bed, daybed, and full-sized bed; with and without a foot board
  • Constructed of kiln dried hardwood and veneers
  • 3 color choices

This baby crib has detail in spades. Between the color options and the high quality veneers and intricate molding, this crib will be sure to be the focal point of your classic nursery. (That is, until that baby smiles the first time and you completely change your mind on what true beauty is.) Once converted into a full-sized bed you have the option to include the foot board or not, but you will need to buy a separate kit for that day, so plan ahead.

Franklin & Ben Abigail 3-in-1 Convertible Crib, Vintage Iron

Key Features:

  • Crib converts into toddler bed and day bed
  • 4 height adjustments
  • Solid cast iron construction
  • Meets ASTM international and U.S. CPSC safety standards

You can easily accessorize this classic design of cast iron to make it look just right for a lace-y theme or a sports nursery. Its durability and quality are both unquestionable, and the company will provide a 1-year warranty for that exact reason. But we’re very much enjoying the visual of baby timeouts being in this little baby jail. Can’t you just see a baby running his bottle along the bars in a black and white stripped onesie? So cute.

Graco Hayden Convertible Crib, Cherry

Key Features:

  • Crib converts into daybed and full-sized headboard
  • Meets all ASTM and CPSC safety standards
  • JPMA certified
  • 1-year warranty

This is your basic but functional, cost-efficient, full-size convertible crib. It doesn’t have additional kits you can add to the conversions, but it will transition with the big changes your child makes as they grow. You’ll likely need some sort of rail or support to transition to the day bed, but for plenty of kids, a pillow is enough to keep them from rolling out. And you’ll need a basic full-sized bed frame and mattress to use this headboard, but you can usually pick those up pretty cheap, also.

Graco Solano 4-in-1 Convertible Crib with Drawer, Espresso

Key Features:

  • Converts from crib to toddler bed, daybed, and full-sized bed
  • 3 height adjustments
  • Meets all CPSC and ASTM Safety Standards
  • JPMA certified
  • 1-year warranty

Current Rating: 3.9

This crib comes in 4 color choices, and with separately purchased conversion kits, it’s sure to last your child well into adulthood. The drawer underneath is a brilliant way to ensure you’re not wasting space and to prevent the common ‘black hole’ where all lost toys tend to go.

Kalani 4-In-1 Convertible Crib

Key Features:

  • Crib converts into toddler bed, daybed, and full-sized bed
  • Made of solid New Zealand pine wood
  • 1-year warranty
  • Meets ASTM international and U.S. CPSC safety standards

This baby crib has a sleek sleigh bed design and comes in 7 different stain or colors so you can customize it to suit your nursery. It has adjustable heights and will convert into a toddler bed, daybed, and full-sized bed (with separately purchased conversion kits). So this is the right crib for your little one if you want it to grow with them. And then when they move out, your mother-in-law can use it when she moves in! (On second thought, you may need to plan a sabotage after your kid moves on.)

Status Violet 3-in-1 Convertible Crib, White

Key Features:

  • Crib converts into daybed and toddler bed
  • 3 height adjustments
  • Pine and composite wood construction
  • JPMA certified
  • Meets or exceeds all ASTM and CPSC safety standards

The main selling point of this bed is that it’s incredibly low to the ground. Which means you won’t be wasting loads of space under it, but best of all, it means that when you convert it into a toddler bed, your toddler won’t hurt themselves rolling out of bed and will be able to get into the bed with relative ease. And with just raising the bed’s height adjustment, the crib also becomes a day bed.

Stork Craft Portofino 4-in-1 Fixed Side Convertible Crib and Changer, Espresso

Key Features:

  • Crib converts into a toddler bed, daybed, and full-size bed
  • Made from pine wood and composites
  • Meets or exceeds all ASTM and CPSC safety standards
  • JPMA certified

This convertible crib has a changing table attached for extreme convenience. The changing table has drawers on the front for clothes or blankets and the side has three open shelves to store diapers, wipes, and butt paste – which will make diaper changes a breeze. And let’s be honest, at 3am, you can use a little ‘easy’ in your life.

Stork Craft Sheffield Fixed Side Convertible Crib, White

Key Features:

  • Crib converts into daybed and full-sized bed
  • Solid pine wood construction
  • 1-year limited warranty

This is a low-cost, full-size crib that will convert in big steps with your children; daybed and full-sized bed (with the purchase of full sized bed rails). It comes in 3 color options and according to reviews, assembly is relatively easy and the parts are well-packaged.

Thomasville Kids Southern Dunes Lifestyle 4-in-1 Convertible Crib , White

Key Features:

  • Crib converts into toddler bed, daybed, and full-sized bed
  • 3 adjustable heights
  • 1-year limited manufacturer’s warranty
  • Meets all ASTM & CPSC safety standards
  • JPMA certified

We love the ship-lap look on the back of this crib that makes us think of a rustic farmhouse. If that’s the style you’re going for in your little one’s nursery, then you may want to take a close look at this crib. It will transition with your kid as she ages, or you can pop it in the guest room because the quality of this wood is extra heavy-duty and will last.
