It can be hard to know what crib is right for your baby. When we look for new cribs to carry, we search for cribs that are lead- and phthalate-safe with nontoxic finishes, made of untreated hardwood, as well as cribs that are functional and convertible.

The newest crib we're excited to bring to Sprout is the Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib.

The Hudson has a modern design with mid-century inspiration, giving you a beautiful crib that's versatile, effortless, and endearing. The Hudson converts to both a toddler bed (conversion kit included) and daybed, and it is solidly built from sustainable New Zealand pine. Whether you prefer a contemporary or time-honored palette for your nursery, Hudson has you covered from modern grey, clean white, playful two-tones, or new naturals.

~ Made with sustainable New Zealand Pine.
~ Converts to daybed and toddler bed with included toddler bed conversion kit.
~ Four adjustable mattress levels.
~ Hidden hardware construction.
~ Greenguard GOLD Certified.
~ Lead and phthalate safe with nontoxic finish.
~ Meets ASTM International and US CPSC safety standards.
~ 1 year warranty.
~ Made in Taiwan.

Features

The Hudson features four easy-to-adjust mattress levels that keep up with baby as she reaches each developmental milestone, from independent sitting to standing. If you don’t know, that’s not always the case with convertible cribs: The one we used for our first daughter was twice as hard to adjust as the Hudson (not to mention double the price!). We played around with the toddler rail before putting the crib together and that was a pretty straightforward, easy conversion too.

What I like about the toddler rail is that it’s enclosed enough to still feel like a crib (aka safe and comfortable for your little one) but open enough to give your toddler a sense of the transition to come—and the freedom to safely get out by herself when she’s ready. When we ultimately remove the toddler rail, I feel confident that the change won’t feel as dramatic. I love that our daughter will use the toddler bed with the same mattress at the same height for a few years to come. Babyletto suggests converting from the crib to the bed when your child is 35 inches tall—around the height of your average kitchen counter. You can use the toddler bed until your child weighs 50 pounds.

Performance

The Hudson is simple to put together. It’s easy to adjust to a growing child and ideal for an expanding family. Between our two children, we actually have three Babyletto cribs (two in our primary house and one in our summer home), and I have to say, they really have been perfect for our family. They look great and provide exactly what we’re looking for: safety, functionality, reliability and style. Our 10-week-old is as happy in her crib as our 2-year-old is in hers.

Design

The Hudson’s mid-century modern design was sleek, clean and streamlined. Plus it’s made from sustainable New Zealand pine—with zero lead, phthalates or toxic finishes—and has spindles on all four sides so you can see baby from any angle. I love that the crib doesn’t get too clunky-looking as it converts to a toddler bed and daybed. It looks light and airy, and, I might add, like I spent a lot on it. I’ll use the extra money to upgrade my daughter to her full-size bed someday.

Summary

The Babyletto Hudson convertible crib is exactly the sleek, modern look I was going for—at a fraction of the cost. Plus, it’s versatile with a functional frame that grows with your child from birth to toddlerhood. Though you probably won’t hand this crib down to multiple siblings, cousins and neighbors, it’s definitely the way to go for an average-size family wanting a designer look for less."
