When searching for a crib, we selected the Baby Italia Hamilton Crib from Babies-R-Us. I didn’t know at the time, but I should have purchased the conversion kit at the same time. While zero of my children spent one night in the crib, it would be more valuable to me as a bed. When we went to convert it to a full-sized bed, I was disappointed to learn that the crib and it’s conversion kits have been discontinued and it can not be converted. We purchased a metal frame and full sized mattress and bolted the bed to it, however it is a poor fit. If you can find a Baby Italia Hamilton Conversion Kit, I suggest purchasing it! I have yet to find somewhere with the item and wish I purchased it from the start.
