yes, yes, yes! I'm 4'10" so when were looking for cribs I wanted something that was still going to be easy for me to lay baby down in once we had to lower the mattress. My son's mattress is on the second to last setting and I can still lay him down with out feeling like I'm tossing him into the crib.
Yes you do. Here i the item # DaVinci Full/Twin Size Conversion Rail Kit- Espresso
Sold by Amazon.com LLC. FYI, does not come with a center bar, my husband and I will be picking up some 2x4s when the time comes to make sure the bed does not sink in. Hope this helps!
i contacted da vinci and they responded promptly with the following:
Thank you for your interest in our furniture. Our Kalani cribs are currently in compliance with the new regulations that will take effect on June 28, 2011. But we cannot guarantee if you were to order the crib you will get the new regulated crib. The store where you decide to purchase it from might have old stock. So just because the cribs we are currently manufacturing are in compliance, depending on the stores stock, you just might get a crib that is manufactured before we made the changes.
The only way you can guarantee you receive a new regulated crib is to wait until June 28th. The stores are not allowed to sell any old stock after that date.
I hope this information helps.
Yes it works until unless ur mattress is of standard size by height. My mattress is little bit high than the usual mattress . But it does work and its a beautiful crib. Go for it I am using for my month old son.
It does not take long to convert the crib to a toddler bed, maybe 30 min?
It takes even less time to change the mattress height of the crib mattress, but removing the mattress is the easiest way to do so.
You probably can, but you'll have one side that is completely open, probably not what they want in terms of safety. The way the crib is built is that the mattress support screws into the sides so really, the front face can be open without a problem. BUT if you contact DaVinci you could probably get a better answer AND/OR get a rail from them. They helped me out with a different problem and are really nice. Good luck!
