We have a 1 month old and a 23 month old. We decided to keep our oldest in a crib as long as possible. We weren't sure how long that would be so we decided to get the least expensive crib we could find which happened to be ikea for like $70! She's been in it since late September and I am really pleased. It seems heavy and sturdy and we haven't has a problem. I like how low it is for when we convert it to a toddler bed. But, it actually isn't much lower than our other $400 crib. Just fyi: I didn't like their mattresses at all. I found a much better one on amazon for $50.
