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.
Has anyone used the DaVinci Kalani Crib as a co-sleeper (nestled up next to their own bed like a sidecar)? Does it work well in that capacity? Feb 4, 2013
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.
They conversion rails are sold separately.
Crib mattress for DaVinci Kalani crib: Do any other Kalani crib owners have a suggestion as to crib mattresses? Feb 7, 2009
Hi Tootsie, we got this crib and the Naturepedic organic 150 mattress. Fits well!The Kalani's metal support is one solid piece & therefore cannot sag in the center.
Hi two questions: 1) is the mattress height on this adjustable? 2) is there a side rail that be raised/lowered using one hand? thx! Jul 10, 2013
The crib is adjustable for four mattress heights. It does not have a drop rail. I was under the impression that the drop side cribs are now banned due to their not meeting safety standards and the potential for injury or death? The adjustable heights on the mattress work very well and are not a hardship, partly due to the crib itself being built lower to the ground. We transitioned from a drop side to this crib almost two years ago and he is now three and nearly ready to go to the next stage on the crib - removing one side and replacing with the side rail that comes with it. We actually got the new crib because he was so active and energetic and we were afraid the other one would collapse on him. The new DaVinci has been wonderful - no problem in the Cherry finish at all, looks great, and is so sturdy for this extremely active little boy! We're delighted with our choice and plan on a white one for my grand daughter soon.
Yes, we have it.
How easily is it to convert? We are grandparents of a baby and 3 year old. Can it be done quickly for different child? Does it take min or hrs? Sep 2, 2013
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.
