advice on cribs?

Some of my friends tease me because I’ve already spent a bunch of time looking at cribs and modern nursery photos, trying to get some inspiration for our future nursery. It’s amazing how expensive most “modern nursery” stuff is. Luckily for people like me who aren’t made of money, Target, JC Penney and even WalMart have some cute modern nursery furniture and bedding.

So far, my favorites (that we might actually be able to afford) are:
* Dwell Studio for Target Silverlake crib in walnut/white
* Parklane Baby Mod nursery collection at WalMart
* Da Vinci Mercer Crib
* Sweet Pea Modern Crib at JC Penney

What I don’t know is (and feel free to help me out on this one), is it better to get a crib that has a droppable side rail (seems practical) or a crib that converts to a toddler bed (also practical)? For some reason, with the ones I’m looking at it seems like it’s either one or the other, but you can’t have both. Any suggestions?

  1. Definitely get a crib that converts into a toddler bed! We bought our crib at Babies r us and not only does in convert into a toddler bed, but you can also buy special rails and convert it into a Full sized bed, it’s pretty sweet.
