There are a lot of things to buy when you're expecting, and one of the bigger purchases will be the crib. Many of today's cribs can often be converted into a toddler bed later on, and even into a standard twin-sized bed when they are old enough. Look for a
crib that has these options so you can really extend the life of your crib well into childhood.
Best of all, these cribs come in a variety of colors and materials. You can even find some with rounded shapes if you're not stuck on the convertible thing, but if you are, think about what you have in mind down the road once you child leaves toddlerhood behind. In this case, durability will become important to you as well.
