Best Convertible

Name: Bonavita's Metro Lifestyle Crib
Price: $550
Why It's Great: A convertible crib is an excellent way to really extend a nursery budget. When one piece, like Bonavita's Metro Lifestyle Crib, converts from crib to toddler/daybed (just by removing four bolts!) to full-size bed (with the addition of a full size mattress, of course), you're getting a lifetime of investment. (Just be sure your child's room is large enough for a full size bed!) This particular model, with its stylish and cosmopolitan lines, is perfect for parents who want modern and traditional, as well as 18+ years of use!

We also like: Bonavita's La Madre Lifestyle Crib ($430), which combines bamboo veneers with sustainable wood, is handsome and sophisticated. We also like the dramatic angles of Jardine's Rubbed Black Claremont Lifetime Crib ($350).

Best Budget

Name: Graco by La Jobi's Ashleigh Convertible Crib
Price: $170
Why It's Great: Any convertible crib will give you value for your money, but Graco cribs are more than just affordable. They're made by La Jobi, a respected nursery furniture company. The Ashleigh Convertible Crib has a sophistocated sleigh design with wainscot detail, and converts to a toddler bed, daybed and full-size headboard.

We also like: IKEA's Gulliver crib ($99) is a fabulous bare bones modern style crib that is extremely popular among hipsters and belt-tighteners.
