Cocoon 7000 Crib

First off, let me say this...Holy Cow I love this crib! It's called the Cocoon 7000. I had a really hard time finding a crib that I liked. There was just something about most of the cribs that I looked at that made them look cheap. I knew I wanted a convertible crib because it seemed the most logical financially. (Slightly more initially but it will grow with our little man) I don't like all the fasteners showing. Call me crazy, call me superficial...I just don't want to see them. I want this to look like a quality piece of furniture because it's the largest purchase for our son yet. It deserves to be quality. I want him to like it. I want to enjoy putting him in it every night for bed.

This is what it looks like in the crib set-up
This is what it looks like with the Toddler rail on it.

This is what it looks like as a full size bed.
I love that it looks sophisticated. I love that it converts all the way to a full size bed. I think it'll come in very handy and save us money in the long run that this bed will follow our son for many, many years. Of course I also like that it meets all safety regulations, has 3 mattress heights and doesn't look like a mini jail cell with a million slats/bars. I'm looking forward to setting this up in our nursery and can already imagine our sleeping boy in it. The thought makes me smile. :-D

Now, Nic thinks I'm crazy for wanting this specific crib primarily because of the cost. He likes the aesthetics but thinks that we can find something a little more reasonable. Eh, I think he's nuts. He hasn't looked like I've looked. I have scoped in person, online and scoured for coupons. No such luck. I like this one and don't feel badly for this splurge because it's our ONLY splurge. Normally, I'm the penny pincher but because we are cutting costs on just about everything else, I think we (and our boy) deserves something nice. We already have a dresser, nightstand and bookcase that we are refinishing (Huge savings!) We have inherited his Papa's rocker, which I love! (Huge savings!) We are also refinishing a lamp stand...and I'm having Nic build the changing table. (Huge savings!) I'm even considering sewing my own bedding (because I can't really find one that I love). So overall, I think we should get it. :-) hahaha Oh and I've even done some research as to which web site has it the cheapest. www.Hayneedle.com has the crib marked down to $511.99, down from $614.99. I also think that we should get the rails necessary to convert the crib to the toddler bed and the full size bed, now. I've heard bad things about moms waiting until those pieces are needed to purchase them and the item has been discontinued. So, the toddler rail is $47.99, down from $57.99. The full size rails are $117.99, down from $141.99. In total...$677.97 and shipping is FREE. The good thing is that it ships in 4-6 days. Most places like babies r us and target ship in weeks. I just don't have that kind of time. This baby is due in 16 weeks. That's plenty of time if I order it now and if he decides to cook til he's full term. I just can't procrastinate. I'm itching to get this nursery done!

Well, those are my thoughts for the day.

This has been another installment of Kristiina's Wishes and wants.

Looks to me like you have put much time and thought into this purchase.... your argument is quite valid and realistic.... so, I'm throwing in my two cents and saying, "you go, girl....get the crib of your dreams!!!" Sorry Nic, Kristiina presented her case brilliantly! ;-))

You may be over thinkin all this baby stuff.
Here is my two cents worth.
Use the bottom drawer of the bureau you already have. When he cries you can close it. he will be snug as a bug in a rug.
Okay, okay it was just a thought.
Love you sweetheart.
