The must-have centerpiece to any nursery is a crib, and the Westwood Design Stratton Convertible Crib with Guard Rail makes a wise investment. Constructed of hardwoods and veneers, this crib is available in a choice of rich, beautiful finishes. The stationary design of the crib makes it extra sturdy, and the mattress lowers as your baby begins to sit and eventually stand. When baby is tall enough to climb out of the crib, it's time to make the conversion to the toddler bed. Simply remove the front crib rail and replace it with the included smaller safety rail. Eventually, you can remove the safety rail and your toddler can enjoy the day bed style. Finally, when they're ready for a big-boy or girl bed, use the original front and back panels of the crib as head and footboards for a full-size bed (bed rails not included).
