Are you looking for a great convertible crib? The Stokke Sleepi System not only looks great, but will grow with your child for many years. The Stokke Sleepi can be used as a bassinet, crib, toddler bed, and it can even be turned into a pair of chairs. The Sleepi System includes 2 mattresses, 1 drape rod, and a conversion kit to transform from a crib to a mini bed.
If you spend a little more for the Stokke Sleepi Junior Bed Kit, you can turn it into a 67.6 inch long junior bed. This kit includes 1 junior sized mattress. The mattress has a waved base, and the underside of the cover is made of netting for increased ventilation and comfort.

We've featured Celery Furniture before, but I want to tell you more about the Lullaboo Cradle. Celery Furniture makes nursery furniture that not only looks great, but fulfills your child's need for comfort and fun. This cradle is elegant and simple, so simple that you don't need any hardware to put it together! Available in two versions, stable and rocking; it's small enough to keep by your bed at night, and still move into your living area during the day. That way your baby will never be far from your reach. The Lullaboo Cradle is made from bamboo and 100% recycled MDF.

I think this next product, the Woody Chalkboard Table, would be a ton of fun for any child. The surface is a chalkboard with a bowl in the center to store chalk. It would be great in any play room! If your little one likes to draw with chalk but you are concerned about the elements or don't have a good place for him to draw, this is a perfect alternative!

When I was young, I loved a little rocking chair that I had. It was made for toddlers, and I found it so exciting to have a piece of furniture just for me. If you want toddler sized furniture for your little one, here's a great chair. The Panton Junior is 25% smaller than the original and has a fun shape, smooth curves, and has color that won't fade over time. If you have a few, they also stack easily. It's available in two colors, orange and white.

When I see the Mammut furniture from IKEA, I really wish I could go back and decorate our nursery with these pieces. The designs are whimsical and imaginative, and are capable of withstanding years of creative abuse. It almost looks like this furniture comes straight out of a saturday morning cartoon! Just about everything has color options of red, blue or green. You can mix and match colors to create a colorful room. And best of all, this stuff is cheap! An entire room of a table, dresser, 3 stools, and a bedside table will cost you less than $200!

Not all nursing chairs are created equal. We have a glider that we bought from Craigslist, but I don't think it was ever actually used for nursing. However, if we had the Monarch Nursery Chair in our nursery things would probably be very different. It was designed with nursing mothers in mind by Dr. Lynn Jones, a furniture design professor from the UK. The chair has a low seat that raises the lap and supports baby, eliminating the need for pillows and footstools, while ensuring that feet remain flat on the floor. A gently curved seat-back supports the back and shoulders keeping the spine straight and chest forward ideal for nursing mothers. The angled seat pad that supports the back of knees and thighs, and the adjustable lumbar support increases comfort and support for the lower back. Finally, the seat has flared sides, allowing ample room for siblings during story time.

I've mentioned before how I tried to do a teddy bear theme for Andy's nursery. It didn't work out as I had a hard time finding teddy bear items and then I lost interest when he was born and I wasn't sleeping. I wish I had seen this a year ago (and had room for it in his nursery now!). My First Bear Sofa by Kaloo is a great place for your toddler to sit, a chair all his own! There's also a cat version bunny as well.
