One of the few new terms that got introduced into the crib lingo recently is "build to grow". What does "build to grow" really means? Is it worth the money? Are Davinci cribs "build to grow"? These are the many questions new parents (and even past parents but are having new babies) wanted to know. In this blog post, I will address these questions and help you understand it better.
What Does "Build To Grow" Really Means?
Build to grow means a crib is made so that it can be converted from one size to another. Basically, the terms "build to grow" is just a more descriptive way of saying "4-in-1 crib" or "3-in-1 crib". Collectively, they are referred to as "convertible crib".
When someone say a crib is made for "build to grow", they mean that the crib can be converted from a toddler bed all the way to a full-sized bed. When you say "build to grow" crib, it is the same as saying a "convertible crib" or a "4-in-1 crib"...it's all a matter of perspectives and your choice of descriptive words.
A build to grow crib can be converted up to four (4) different sizes:
- Infant bed
- Toddler bed
- Day bed
- Full-size bed
Is a Build To Grow Crib Worth The Money?
If you ask this question to parents who own a build to grow crib, they will excitedly say "YES" and would "highly recommend" you get one for your child too. Why? Because it saves them on having to buy 2 or 3 beds for their child. Because you can convert a build to grow bed into different sizes to accommodate your child's growth, you save a bundle on having to buy multiple cribs.
So, is it worth the money? Absolutely!!!! Here are some of the things parents are saying about their build to grow cribs.
Comments From Parents
To write this topic, I did some research and see what other Moms and Dads had to say. Below are many comments that best represents the true spirits of parents supporting (and some, not supporting) a build to grow crib.
"I think you will enjoy it, and it was nice not having to get a new one when going to a toddler bed."
"We have a convertible crib and have been happy with it. In fact we had to change it to a toddler bed in an "emergency" last week and was very glad we were able to do that."
"My husband and I thought this would be the absolute best way to go. What more could we need, it was all inclusive."
Of all the many positive comments, this is the only one I found that hint at why it might not work for you.
"It is impossible to know if your child will take to it or not. I think if my boys had their own rooms maybe it would be different."
