After spending most of my pregnancy obsessing over the reviews, style and cost of every crib on earth my daughter was almost four months old before I actually bought one. We were ready for her to move into her nursery from our room but were missing a key piece of furniture so off I went with my mom, her best friend and my best friend (my husband gave up on the crib search after I changed my mind about the fifth crib when I was about seven months pregnant). After all of my research and indecision I had never really looked at the Graco Lauren crib. We were first drawn to it's simple style and the fact that it wasn't overwhelmingly huge like some of the other cribs out there. Then we saw the price. It was at least 50% less than any of the other cribs that we looked at. My husband put it together for us and said that it was super easy to do and it looked so pretty with the bedding we had for her. She has now slept in it for two years this week and it still looks as good as the day we bought it. My only complaint is pretty minor. The parts that attach the mattress support to the legs of the crib kind of show more than I would like, even with a skirt. But soon we will be converting it to a toddler bed for her and that won't be an issue!

I purchased this Graco Lauren convertible crib after I had to return the Simplicity crib because of a recall. I lvoe the style and look of this crib. it was fairly easy to put together, though there were many more parts and it took considerably longer than the old crib did to assemble.

after getting it put together and putting the mattress in I noticed there is a lot of room at the foot end of the crib. enough room for a baby foot and leg to slide in and become trapped.

I called Graco to ask about this, wondering if there was possibly a defect in the crib I got, and I was told by the customer service rep and her supervisor that there is SUPPOSED to be enough room for my fist to fit in. that, to me, is ridiculous. how can a baby be safe in her crib when there is that much space for her to get stuck in?

I have contacted the company who make the mattress I have to see if they can do something. if not I will be returing this crib and getting one that is safe for my shild.

Great Crib!

By 

from USA

Comments about Graco Lauren Convertible Crib:

We purchased this convertible crib for our son after countless hours of research and searching for the "perfect crib". We have not been disappointed. He has now been in it for 3 years, and we are using it as the converted toddler bed. My only complaint was that it didn't come with a bed rail to use after converting. Not a big deal. This crib has held up well enough that we are going to use it for baby #2.

Poor railing design..

By 

from USA

Comments about Graco Lauren Convertible Crib:

The crib looks great, it was easy to assemble & the fact that it converts to a toddler bed is awesome! But....

None of those wonderful things makes up for the fact that the railings are too close together, or you could say that they are too far apart... My son is now 13 months old and like most babies, he holds onto the sides of the crib to help him stand. His legs are just the perfect size that when he does stand in his crib his legs will slip through the railing gaps. His legs get stuck between the rails above the knees which is extremely painful for him.

Can you imagine your little precious boy or girl eyes filled with tears, as your heart breaks listening to your baby screaming in pain, as you frantically try to release the grip of the cribs railings from your little ones legs. You can hear the help me mommy in their cry.. And everytime that you try to move their little legs they scream louder from the pain because their is not an easy way to get the little legs that are wedged tight between the railings that you can not move them up or down, but you have to get them out NOW because they are beginning to swell.... Until finally you use your mommy strength to pull the railings as hard as you can until they give enough that you little on can pull their leg free..

It's terrifying and it is a very helpless feeling hearing your child screaming and crying for you to help them, as you struggle to set them free.

Can you imagine this happening at least twice a month?!!

My son wears a reminder of those moments on his knees all black and blue for weeks after.

This crib was poorly designed. Because with, or without bumpers.. The little ones legs will still get crammed in-between those rails...

This is a beautiful crib.

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Graco Lauren Convertible Crib:

I received this crib as a gift. I had registered for it. It was pretty easy to put together and I love the look of it. The wood however, is soft and scratches easily. It seems quite safe & my son seems to like it. I do wish that the top position for the mattress was a bit higher. With a young infant it can be difficult to lean down and pick them up and set them down at that level. I also like that it can grow with my son and it goes beautifully with my decor. We bought a serta mattress for it and it fits beautifully. I think it'll be relatively easy to break down and re assemble when we move. It's also quite easy to maneuver if news be. I love this crib and when I have a bigger room will be buying the matching changing table.

The best crib

By 

from Las Cruces, NM

Comments about Graco Lauren Convertible Crib:

The Graco Lauren 4-in-1 Convertible Drop Side Crib is in my opinion one of the best cribs out there. It grows with your child and this crib is so durable. The shape of the bed is so beautiful and goes with pretty much every room style. Its strong so it lasts a very long time. The colors are so beautiful and they have so many options. Its not too pricey either, you can fine these cribs at placed like walmart or target for low prices. Its also easy to put together, and if I can put it together than anyone can. I recommend this crib for any parents to be. you will enjoy this 4 in 1 crib to the fullest and so will your little one.

great construction

By 

from Buffalo Grove, IL

Comments about Graco Lauren Convertible Crib:

This crib is very attractive put together. I put it together by myself, though i do recommend a helper for some of the last steps, in about two hours. the directions are clear and easy to follow. the hex tool did all but strip a few of the nuts so I would recommend you use your own hex tool instead. The crib is sturdy, does not wobble. I feel it was a very good value to for what we paid for it, plus we bought it at target during a promotion where if you buy the crib you get the matching changing table for free so an even better deal for us.

Good Convertible Crib/Bed_Graco Lauren 4-in-1

By 

from Portland, OR

Comments about Graco Lauren Convertible Crib:

I am happy with our Graco Lauren 4-in1. The design is beautiful and is great for a boy or girl. The crib was very easy to assemble and I did it by myself without any problems. I do wish the bed was more solid and weighed more. I can move it very easy which is a huge benefit but compared to some other beds it is extremely light. My son is now 8 months old and my 2.5 year like to stand on the side and look at his little brother and the bed has withstood both. I have not converted the crib into a bed yet but am very pleased with the crib and am sure i will not ahve any problems when it comes time to change. The color is true and there were not any dings or scuffs in the wood when we received it. Good crib especially for price. Very happy.

The Graco Lauren Crib is a beautiful addition to any nursery!

By 

from Magnolia, TX

Comments about Graco Lauren Convertible Crib:

I have 2 baby beds for my daughter, 1 for home and 1 for "Nana's" house. The Graco Lauren was purchased online at an outstanding price for Nana's nursery. Graco is a brand of which I'm very familiar and hold great trust in. I chose white for the crib since I'm using lots of bright colors for the decor. The white makes the colorful hues of her bedding stand out! The crib is beautiful in her room against the pink walls! The Graco Lauren's finish was beautiful, no chips seen in the paint finish. And being a convertible bed, I love that this will grow with her!We should be able to use this bed at least thru her pre-teen years! Putting the bed together required little effort and was quite easy. The bed itself is very sturdy and I feel will accomodate an active baby! I would definitely recommend the Graco Lauren crib to any and all who ask!!

Beautiful Bed!

By 

from Winnetka, IL

Comments about Graco Lauren Convertible Crib:

When my husband and I were expecting our first child, I researched cribs constantly to find the best quality crib for the best price. The GRACE LAUREN CONVERTIBLE is the crib we chose. It was really easy to assemle. I was able to put it together myself two days before my daughter was born. It is a really sturdy crib. We were really impressed. Our mattress fits snuggly inside, so we don't have to worry about there being extra space between the mattress and rails. It also adjusts to three differents heights so you can have it higher and when your baby is younger so it is easier to get them in and out, and lower it down as they start to sit up, pull themselves up, or stand up. I know that I will be able to use this crib for mulitple children because it holds up really well. The only issue we have with it is that a little bit of the finish came off while we were putting it together. Other than that this crib has been so great for our growing family!

Lauren crib is great!

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Graco Lauren Convertible Crib:

We have the Lauren 4-1 Crib for our almost 4 month old son. We got it in the Expresso color. It's a beautiful color and it's perfect for a boy. I love the way the back has the arch design. We got it on sale, with the crib mattress included. It does scratch easily, but as long as you're not really banging it up against stuff, it should be fine. My son is extremely skinny so his arms and legs do fit through the slats, but as long as we keep him away from it, it's fine. We do cosleep, but when he isn't in bed with me, he loves being in there. I have not tried to convert the crib yet, and we still have it on the lowest setting, but it was extremely easy to put together. Took about a half hour to fortyfive minutes for my fiance to do. The crib is in our room, and it fits nicely in there even though we have a smallish bedroom. I really love our Lauren Convertible 4-1 crib. The color is gorgeous too. We made sure we got the one without the dropside, because dropside cribs are dangerous.
