I’m currently shopping for a new crib for our baby. Vito’s crib was something borrowed and repainted, which I loved, but I really want us to get our own crib and convertible toddler bed. And so, naturally, I’ve been on a Pinterest and Google high, searching for ideas and trying to source local suppliers for the kind of crib we want.

In a perfect world, I would love an Oeuf NYC crib. They are lovely, minimalist, and best of all, safe.

I also have to consider that the crib needs to fit in our bedroom. Since we don’t have a nursery (and I intend to have the baby co-sleep, not bed share), I have allotted some space in our room for the crib. So I’ve also been looking at possible layouts of “master bedrooms with baby crib” and these are what I’ve found so far (See photos below).

Basically, I will need something that can blend into our current bedroom. Well, there’s not much to work with there, except that I would like the crib to fit in as much as possible, and not stand out too much. It’s going to have to be a convertible type, too, as I don’t intend to invest in a big bed until she is too big to fit into the crib, so one that converts into a toddler bed is ideal.

Locally, here in Manila, I’ve been seeing a few options. However, I have to know they are safe, and at the same time, long-wearing and convertible cribs. The choices I’m down to are:

Mothercare Patstow Cot

Mothercare Patstow Cot

Hudson Convertible Crib (from Babyland)

Hudson Convertible Crib (from Babyland)

I can’t decide yet, but these two are my most feasible options, in terms of what I am willing to invest in and their potential long-time use. I’m inclined to this grey Hudson one, but it depends on availability. Sigh! Decisions, decisions.
