      Hi Shelli. No to be honest, all of us have opted for wooden cribs. I do have a friend that has an iron crib, I think she went for a Bratt Decor brand, the Joy Baby one I think from memory…It’s looks beautiful in her nursery and she likes it because it makes the room look more open and not so closed in. Personal choice really 🙂

    Hi Violet, Congratulations, what an exciting time for your family. I hope all goes well in welcoming a beautiful new life into this world. Yes I can see the picture you are referring to, this is my personal favorite kind of nursery furniture also when it comes to fitting our the nursery. I can’t quite remember from the top of my head but it is a little difficult to find cribs that don’t have slats on 2 of the sides these days. There is a few companies that manufacture cribs similar to this more elegant, Victorian style nursery furniture and also have the matching nursery furniture that is more of a solid wood feel to the room, however you will find these are higher priced. Worth checking out a couple of these companies, you will see the matching furniture sets including dressers, bookshelves and don’t forget the matching changing table also – Franklin & Ben, Million Dollar Baby (the Million Dollar Baby Classic Louis 3-Drawer Changer Dresser looks the same as the picture with the left side compartments). In saying that, most of the other cribs I mentioned above, all come with matching nursery furniture also. Emma

      Hi Kathleen
      I had someone else inquire about this set too and I can’t quite remember from the top of my head but it is a little difficult to find cribs that don’t have slats on 2 of the sides these days….. There is a few that manufacture cribs similar to this more elegant, Victorian style nursery furniture and also have the matching nursery furniture that is more of a solid wood feel to the room. Here are a few that make very similar to the one in the photo: Franklin & Ben, Million Dollar Baby (the Million Dollar Baby Classic Louis 3-Drawer Changer Dresser looks the same as the picture with the left side compartments). Have a browse through them.

    How do you guys feel about the Graco Stanton Convertible Crib 4 in 1? It seems like a really good crib at a great value and i was really interested in the Davinci but a majority of reviews said the wood is very soft and it can scratch and crack easily…

      Hi Robert
      The Graco Stanton is another excellent crib made by a reliable brand. I very much like the Graco crib also, I have never heard of the DaVinci cracking but to answer your question, the Graco is another great option if you have any concerns with the DaVinci. The Graco Lauren is also a nice crib too, even more popular than the Stanton you were looking at. Regards, Linda

      Hi Lee
      My opinion is that the Augusta crib is a very very nice crib, the only reason I didn’t include it is because of the price, I just don’t think it fits everyone’s budget, I would categorize it more as a luxury crib. It sure looks like one. In terms of quality, it’s nice and I do rather like it. Very sturdy and elegant. It’s, again, another convertible one too.

    Hi,
    I’m shopping for a crib, first baby, and very tempted to go for the Canada made/hardwood/Eco friendly cribs. I leave in Montreal, Canada. The price is definitely more expensive. Is it justified? Or other cribs made in China are just as ‘good’.
    Appreciate your input. Thanks alot in advance.
    Christine

        Hi Christine
        You might just find that some available locally are made in China also. Being ‘Made in China’ isn’t always a bad thing, you just need to look into it and see what the crib is actually made of. With some highly popular and high quality cribs, they are made from wood that is important from countries, eg. New Zealand wood but still assembled in China. The ones I’ve mentioned are good quality, otherwise I wouldn’t have mentioned them. There is also some nasty ones out there that I would touch at all, hence why I’ve only included 10 of the best here.
