The Graco Remi 4-in-1 Convertible Crib and Changer is the first entry in our list to have a changer in addition to the crib. The changer is nice since it is an extra storage place that is aesthetically consistent with the crib. Additionally, there’s space on the top for you to change your baby’s diaper quickly – while having all relevant supplies on hand such as wipes and extra diapers.
One thing to note here is that the changer is actually connected to the crib – so the manufacturer does not recommend building them separate from each other. This does mean that if you’re not interested in the extra changer, then you may want to consider another model.
This crib does sit a bit higher than the other entries on the list, but that is mostly because the side rail is bowed a little. So, it is higher on the end posts than it is in the middle. The middle portion of the rail actually measures just an inch lower than the posts (34.9 inches).
Additionally, there is an extra draw under the crib for additional storage. We found this to be a smart decision since the base of most cribs aren’t really utilized in any way.
The crib itself is capable of adjusting to a toddler bed, day bed, or even a full size bed. This crib has a lot of the aspects that make it a contender for the best cribs for short moms.
