Someone please help... I'm searching for a crib and Don't know what to buy. I have heard lots of reviews and I don't want a super cheap crib but at the same time I don't want to spende more than 250-300 on one. Anyone that has bought one please voice your opinion on whether you like it or not. Thanks!!!

we bought a Storkcraft Aspen 4 stage Crib - We bought it online from minitots and I think it is beautiful and really well made. The only issue with it is the back board is curved and it was difficult to find a mobile that attaches properly to it but other than that I can't wait to have my baby and bring her home to it.

I got the Storkcraft Heather 4-in-1 crib from walmart. They do carry it on their website. It was around $200 with tax and came with a nice drawer on wheels that slides under the crib, very nice for storing toys, or whatever. My only complaint is that the directions were slightly confusing and it took maybe 2 hours to get it together. For the money it's a nice crib and with the extra left over from not buying a real expensive crib I'm going to buy a nicer crib mattress.

I also have the Storkcraft Aspen 4 stage Crib. I love it to pieces. I have it in my bedroom until she gets a little bit older.. and it looks fabulous. I dont have any complaints at all. ~Kristin~

I bought the Storkcraft Rochester crib... we really liked it because it has a storage drawer underneath (very useful), and it converts to a toddler bed and then a double bed... plus, it wasn't too expensive. In our local buyandsell or craigslist, there are lots of really nice slightly used cribs, so you might be able to find a nice like-new used crib around your neighborhood... it would be a good way of getting a high quality crib without paying the brand-new price. (I'd definately buy a new mattress though if we'd gone that route.)

IT IS HARD FINDING THE PERFECT CRIB! I bought the book "Baby Bargains" and that rates all the brands of cribs out there. Although Storkcraft is fairly priced it wasn't very highly rated or recommended (unfortunately most of the cribs that were recommended were double your price range) So, with that said, if the ladies on this site are happy with their cribs than you'll probably end up being happy with a similar one. I got my from Pottery Barn Kids (in my opinion they're way over priced but i fell in LOVE with a crib and I had to have it). Good luck!

My husband and I had been looking at cribs online and last week we went out to Baby Depot and Babies R Us. We wanted a solid wood crib and we got lucky because as the man at Babies R Us told us Ba__set cribs are the best. I had a Ba__set with my older three so even though Babies R Us did not have any Ba__set Cribs we went back to Baby Depot and got a beutiful Maple (which is great because most cribs are pine and the teeth marks show like crazy) Nantucket Crib which was on sale for $250.00. We could not believe it and are so happy.

I bought a Delta crib that has 5 mattress positions and converts to a toddler bed. I spent about $200 and I love it. It is so easy to put together or adjust because it requires no tools.
