We just purchased this Mini Crib for our bundle of joy arriving now in January 2014. We have previously purchased DaVinci Convertible Crib for our first born (4 years ago) and now its a convertible Full Size Bed. We needed something smaller for our additional baby so this fits perfectly and when it converts to twin bed will be even better. I also purchased the mattress to add stability to the crib. So far we absolutely love it. Easy to build as we previously built the one before. Just takes two people to build it. We bought it in cherry to match the first furniture bought. I also suggest that the screws be tightened every month to keep the stability of the crib, we did that previously and it helped. We just trust this brand absolutely and would not trade it. The only thing difference was that this type of crib has a wooden support not a spring as the previous one but let's see if it holds as the baby gets bigger as it says up to 50 lbs.
