Types of baby cribs
Convertible crib from Walmart Convertible cribs

With a few modifications, you can transform convertible cribs into different styles (depending on the model) such as a toddler bed, daybed or even full-size bed. It’s a good crib type to get if you plan to use it for one child over many years.

Shop
Mini crib at Walmart Mini cribs

If you’re tight on space, a mini crib might be the way to go. While most standard cribs fit mattresses that are around 28 inches wide and 52 inches long, mini cribs often fit mattresses that are 24 inches wide and 38 inches long.

Shop
Portable crib from Walmart Portable cribs

These cribs tend to be small, foldable, lightweight and may even have wheels. They make the most sense for parents who want to roll their crib from room to room or be able to transport it to grandma and grandpa’s house on occasion.

Shop
Crib and changer combo from Walmart Crib and changer combos

Some cribs have a built-in changing table. Known as crib/changer combos, they require more floor space than other crib styles, but less space than a crib and a stand-alone changing table. Many also have extra drawers for storage.

Crib safety tips
  • Room sharing: The Canadian Paediatric Society recommends little ones sleep in the same room as their parents until they are six months old for easier nighttime feeding and to reduce the risk of SIDS.[1] Bassinets work well for this period because they’re smaller than cribs and take up less space in your bedroom. If your baby reaches the height and weight restrictions of their bassinet before the six-month mark, your doctor might recommend setting up a crib in your bedroom temporarily until your child is old enough to move to their own room.
  • Crib bumpers: Some parents think pads that line the inside of a crib starting at bed level and rising up about a foot (a.k.a. crib bumpers) prevent babies from banging their soft noggins, but Health Canada and the Canadian Paediatric Society specifically warn against the use of crib bumpers because studies have linked them to baby injuries and deaths.[2]
  • Lowering the crib: When your baby starts sitting up unassisted, think about bumping the crib down a notch so the distance from the top of the mattress to the top of the sides will be greater. For most cribs, simply remove the mattress and adjust the base of the bed to move it down a few inches. Once your baby is able to stand up, there’s a greater risk of them falling out, so it’s time to move the mattress down to the lowest setting.
  • Length of use: Once your little one starts trying to climb out, or they reach 35 inches tall, it’s time to move them out of their crib so they don’t fall out.[3]

  • Material: Wood

  • Colour options: Pebble grey, espresso, white

  • Wheels: No

  •  

The clean lines and ability to transform into a full-size bed (complete with headboard and footboard) make the Graco Solano a convertible crib that is truly designed to last. Just think: This bed could even usher your baby all the way into their teens—talk about long-term value.

Pros
Cons
Pros
  • The three-stage adjustable supports allow you to lower the mattress height as your baby grows.

  • It converts from baby crib to daybed, toddler bed and even full-size bed.

  • Unlike many crib models, it comes with a mattress!

Cons
  • While this crib can morph into multiple configurations, be aware that the conversion kits are sold separately (as with most convertible cribs).

  • It’s a basic crib with no extra frills.

The draw
The crib is just what we were looking for—simple, sturdy and beautiful. The mattress that it comes with is AMAZING! It inflated to full size pretty quickly and it's way better than I expected. It is super soft, has good firmness and is quiet!
-NewMama1, Walmart customer
The downside
I only gave this crib four stars because it's a 4-in-1 and the rest of that parts to make it a day bed and so forth do not come with it. Yes, I know that's normal and all 4-in-1 don't come with the pieces but why??

Pros
Cons
Pros
  • It easily converts from crib to toddler bed, daybed and even full-size bed (with or without footboard) as your baby grows. (Just note that the conversion pieces, including the toddler guardrail, stabilizer and full-size rail, are sold separately.)

  • The crib comes in six different colours to suit every baby nursery.

Cons

  • The crib is on the taller side, which may be annoying for short parents.

The draw
I think it is unbeatable. We were looking for a used crib but saw this one, which was affordable. It came today and I put it all together easily. Not too heavy so is it fine to move it around.
-lamaiden97, Walmart customer

Good quality for the price but be warned, it is a VERY tall crib. Not for shorter parents.

Pros

Cons

  • Parents gave mixed reviews about assembly. Some said the instructions are tough to follow.

The draw
Amazing quality. Solid and absolutely beautiful.
-Courtney709, Walmart customer
The downside
Love the colour and the style. The instructions manual is not so user friendly so you will need a lot of patience to assemble it.

  • Dimensions (H x L x W): 34.75 x 40 x 25.75 inches

  • Assembled weight: 30 pounds

  • Material: Wood

  • Colour options: Grey, white

  • Wheels: No

The compact footprint of this chic mini crib saves space if you’re decorating a small nursery or even looking for an alternative to a bassinet. It can be tucked right into most mid-sized bedrooms, so that baby can comfortably sleep nearby for the first little while. (Health Canada recommends room sharing with your baby for the first six months to reduce the risk of SIDS.)[4]

Pros
Cons
Pros
  • Parents say it’s quick and easy to assemble, lightweight and easy to move between rooms.

  • The two-stage adjustable mattress support allows you to raise and lower the mattress as your baby grows.

  • You get the modern styling of a designer crib with a budget-friendly price tag.

Cons
  • The smaller size can get cramped for bigger babies, and there is a risk of your toddler out-growing it more quickly than you’d like.

  • Regular size crib sheets won’t fit the smaller mattress and mini crib bedding may be a bit pricier. (Parents say that sheets designed for play yards often fit just right!)

  • The crib mattress is included but can be a bit crinkly.

The draw
I cannot say enough good things about this crib! It’s the perfect size to go in our bedroom next to our bed and was so simple to assemble. It has a high-quality feel without the extremely high price tag.
-Sarah, Walmart customer
The downside
The only thing I’m not a fan of is the mattress. It’s super crinkly and makes a lot of noise any time my son moves. I definitely plan on replacing it soon.

Cons
  • Some parents say it’s difficult to assemble, so be sure to read the full directions before beginning!

Make the most of a tight space with this dual-purpose crib and changing table. With two shelves underneath the changing pad for diaperswipes and onesies, your baby essentials will be within arm’s reach. Best of all, the crib easily converts to a toddler bed when baby is ready for the next level. (Conversion kit sold separately.)

Pros
Cons
Pros
  • The three-level mattress support system means you can keep your baby up high when they’re really small (and help protect your back from lifting pains!), then move it down to protect them from toppling out once they start sitting up.

  • It has a simple, elegant design.

  • The shelves are super handy for storage in small spaces.

Cons
  • matching changing table is handy, but some parents say the surface feels a tad small—especially as baby grows.

  • The changing table also doesn’t have a strap for holding baby in place.

The draw
Very sturdy and easy to put together. I had a crib and changing table from when my son was little but this crib is better for our apartment. It saves space with the changing table connected to the crib.
-Barbie, Walmart customer
The downside
The crib is fairly easy to put together even being eight months pregnant. The colour is nice and it's sturdy. The changing area is kind of small and the shelves are kind of flimsy but it gets the job done. I'm happy with my purchase.
