Some people invest mega bucks on a crib and that is totally their prerogative, but I do not recommend it. I made the mistake of registering for one of those cribs that turns into a bed frame that can be used later and thought that would mean my kid would be set until she was 18 years old. Guess what happened? The crib got recalled! That made me rethink my whole crib philosophy. I decided cribs are not meant to be forever furniture, so why invest so much money in something that is temporary?
That doesn't mean that you or your baby have to be stuck with some boring big box store crib. Nope, you can customize a simple crib and make it a one of a kind temporary treasure.
