I Need Help!
Well, we've reached a small problem in the nursery planning department - the crib we've planned on getting at IKEA isn't in stock in the country right now... and SHOULD be in August, but they can't guarantee that it will be in stock in one of the stores in decent traveling distance from my house (and they won't ship it). So, I'm now looking everywhere trying to find a decent back-up plan...
As you know, we're rather frugal folks (or at least trying to be) and the BEST option $$-wise is the IKEA piece. The rest of these options range from $169-$269 or so at the best sale prices I can find online. The IKEA crib is convertable to a toddler bed. You can probably tell on the choices below if they are or are not convertable (neither option is a MUST for us... it's nice, but really, won't we be needing a crib for like the next 8 years... if we're thinking 4 kids...!?). I do like the added benefit of the drawer under the crib instead of needing to buy some plastic tubs for storage... not worth extra $$, but if it's included and already a decent price, it's not a bad option...
Here are the options (in no specific order) - please let me know your favorite (and why too!!) All you seasoned moms, let me know what you do/don't like about the crib you have too! This is just one little decision I know, but it feels so big... and expensive... :)
Note - all of these are shown in the company's oak coloring - probably what we would go with for our nursery.
NEXT PROBLEM - Dresser, changing table, AHHH...
