An option that is now available to many parents is convertible cribs. This option is unique from the traditional alternative of high dollar cribs or low dollar, cheap quality ones. Instead, convertible cribs offer a third option that can be perfect for many people. Here, we take a look at some of the benefits associated with choosing this choice for your baby's crib option.
One of the single biggest benefits to convertible cribs is their versatility. As the name suggests, these cribs can be converted into other pieces of furniture. Depending on the specific product this can range from one conversion to several ones. This provides a great benefit to parents as the convertible crib can potentially be converted into a sitting area, a play pen, a nursing station or a full sized bed depending on the product you buy. The result is that most customers can get far more value from their purchase as it can be used for a number of years.
A second benefit to these cribs is that they can help save you money. One way is through their usage for several years. Since you are able to use these cribs for longer than other options because the crib can be converted, the result is that you don't have to buy as many new beds or other larger cribs. Plus, many of the convertible cribs offer a bargain price to buy. They are often much cheaper than high end cribs because they use softwoods rather than hardwoods. This might even scare some prospective buyers until they recognize how much improved new softwood furniture has become in this area through improved treatment processes.
A third benefit of the convertible cribs is that they are relatively easy to put together and take apart. This is important because since you will be using them for a number of years, you will find it advantageous to be able to put together a take apart for all the conversions and for traveling. Most people are able to put these cribs together in under an hour and don't have to be great builders to do it. In fact, many women who are still pregnant have been able to properly put these cribs together.
A fourth benefit to these convertible cribs is they are durable and sturdy. This surprises many people who have come to expect these limitations with softwoods. However, most of these options are very durable. Also, concerns about bite marks are overstated especially when it is easy to add a teething rail cover to the crib to protect it. These are low cost and can be found at a number of different places.
The above list of benefits is by no means exhaustive. However, it should give you some idea of the value of convertible cribs. We believe that their popularity will only increase as more and more people learn about them. The convenience and bargain price make them an attractive option that many people should strongly consider for their baby.
