Tips for Buying a Crib

Okay, just ONE tip.

If you think, for any reason, that you might have a child that consistently exceeds the 100th percentile for height, do not buy a Stokke Sleepi Crib. Don’t get me wrong – this crib is stylish, modern and unique. We have enjoyed it thoroughly, and recently converted it to a toddler bed.

However, case in point:


Hello! I’m still 2 years old, yet 6 feet tall! Uh, this is getting a little uncomfortable.

Anyone know of some stylish, modern and unique twin beds?

    Metalia, I love that Pkolino Toddler Bed! I think I may get it for my own son who is soon to outgrow his crib. It’s great that it converts to a chair.

    Hello, my $.02 is that I shouldn’t have bought my kids twin beds at all. I was so excited to get them Big Girl and Big Boy beds I did it right away and didn’t think about it. But if you have the room, a full or even queen size bed makes so much sense. You can snuggle with them at bed time, they can have sleepovers, and even use their room to house guests from time to time.

    Why for some reason did I think that the stokke went up to bigger kids beds… I could’ve sworn that one of my friends kids has their boy in a stokke crib and he’s a giant!
    I think I may be imagining things though, my brain isnt quite what it used to be…
    Good luck though.

    Expensive but I love this: http://tinyurl.com/kwll52

    Not a toddler bed, but I love these and really hope to win the lottery so I can get them when my kid is older. http://tinyurl.com/n92trb

    I wish I still lived in SoCal and not Oklahoma so I could swoop in and buy the Stokke Sleepi off you once you put it on Craigslist. I want one.
