Crib notes

We ordered our crib over the weekend from Pottery Barn Kids. We were attracted to the two tone wood and the fact that the drawers under the crib are actual drawers and not just a place for stuff to get dusty in something that seems like a drawer but is actually a dust magnet under the mattress.

I was hesitant to get a crib where the side didn't lower, but we are both tall, so once I tried out putting something in a crib and easily not using the side gate, I figured we would be ok. We did not go for the toddler bed conversion kit because for all intents and purposes, once the kid is able to climb out of the crib, we'll just move him to a big-boy bed and reserve the crib for baby #2.

It was definitely more than we wanted to spend, but we decided we wanted to be sure that the crib would last through two (or more*) kids, and that it was well manufactured and an actual piece of furniture...rather than some particle board with slats.

All in all, I think it will be a great addition to the nursery and I am super glad that we found something that we both like and will last for a long time.

*The plan really is for two...but you never know.


  1. omg, you bought at crib! That's so freakin' exciting!

    Wow, that must be the craziest, most warm fuzzy feeling ever.

  2. You're so prepared! We haven't even begun creating a space for a nursery yet (need to add walls/ doors to our loft)... Thanks for motivating us to get moving! :)
