My son is getting big enough to finally get out of his toddler bed (from his lifetime crib) and now we are needing to convert it into a full size. The owner manual says we need to buy the conversion kit (2 little rails for $149.00!). I googled it and people are saying you can just buy universal full size hook-on style conversion rails. Does anyone have any advice on this? I called the mattress store and they say they are only $40! I guess we could try them and return them if they don't work, but DS would be out of a bed while we take his apart and have to put it back together if they don't work and need to order the $149.00 pair. : (
My GS is just about ready for a regular bed. I have a twin in there for him. What are the latest rails etc to put on a regular twin. It has been over 20 years since I have dealt with this problem /challeage so I came to experts
buy both sets of rails. Take them home and try the 40.00 one first, if it works, no harm. Then you can take back the expensive ones. If the cheap ones don't work, then you have the real ones right there, and the baby doesn't have to spend time without a bed.
I too, like a pp, bought my rails when I got the crib. They were only 60 bucks.
