It's the centerpiece of the nursery and possibly the most expensive purchase new parents make. How to decide on a crib? Take a look at our top picks. By Danielle Friedland

Best Budget

Name: Graco by La Jobi's Ashleigh Convertible Crib
Price: $170
Why It's Great: Any convertible crib will give you value for your money, but Graco cribs are more than just affordable. They're made by La Jobi, a respected nursery furniture company. The Ashleigh Convertible Crib has a sophistocated sleigh design with wainscot detail, and converts to a toddler bed, daybed and full-size headboard.

We also like: IKEA's Gulliver crib ($99) is a fabulous bare bones modern style crib that is extremely popular among hipsters and belt-tighteners.
