Review of Crib and Change Table in One - The Graco Remi 4-in-1 Convertible Crib

Crib Change Table Combination

Consider a crib-change-table combination for smaller rooms. This crib measures 29.53 inches deep, 35.94 inches high, by 71.77 inches wide. It offers three drawers, a drawer below the crib, a change-table, side-shelf storage, converts to a daybed and full bed.

Last week we discussed a lovely wall decal mommy selected for her baby's room, and this week we'll review the crib. 

There's a mommy-to-be in our family, and she's in the process of setting up for the precious bundle's scheduled arrival in August.

Crib Solution for a Smaller Room

The future baby's room is not large. It does feature a large step-in closet that can fit multiple dressers; however, the room itself is on the smaller side.

We love maximizing space in small rooms, so coming up with practical, useable pieces was a fun adventure. 

The first consideration mommy-to-be had was choosing a crib that would fit the room and solve multiple functional solutions. 

Crib Change Table Combination With Storage

This particular crib is a crib and change-table and comes with four drawers and a side-storage area.

Here's a photo of the full front of the crib. There are three drawers below the changing table and a full drawer below the crib.

Note that the mattress and bedding are sold separately.

There's a drawer below the crib and three drawers below the change-table. As you can see from the photo below, the drawers are a good size. The drawers slide easily and are ideally located below the baby's changing station. 

If mommy and daddy-to-be are into a simple, modern look and feel, this crib checks those boxes with its crisp lines. There are no dips, groves, or curves, except for the slight curves on the top rails and the pullout handle areas. The barely visible curves add a little pizzazz to this contemporary design.

Check Out the Extra Side-Storage


Not only do you have four drawers total in the front, but you also get two deep storage areas on the side of the crib. This spot is ideal for whatever you want; diapers, creams, lotions, and more. 

If your room is small, this crib provides a lovely place for the baby to sleep, plenty of storage, and a changing station. This crib also works for those who live in small apartments or prefer to add a crib to mommy and daddy's room.

With extra side storage, you can place changing supplies in two spots giving you the option of diapering the baby from two angles, either from the front or the side. 

This Crib Changes Into a Daybed, Then The Railings Can Be Used for a Headboard and Footboard for a Full Bed


This crib will last the baby for several years. When it comes time to change the crib into a full bed, you'll need to get the mattress and another piece to hook the mattress on. We've yet to get to that stage, so we're unable to attest to that particular feature.

Great Choice For Mom's Who Aren't On the Taller Side


I'm Nana, and I'm 5'6.5" tall, and this crib is a good size for me. Mommy is 5'2" in height, and it's ideal for her as well. 

Back "in my day," the crib I had was higher, and you had to drop the railing to reach the baby. It did provide an option to raise the mattress very high up, so lowering the railing wasn't necessary for those newborn days. 

This crib is designed lower, so there are no railings to be lowered and no need for that option.

Extra Tips

Grandpa put this crib together while mommy-to-be read some of the comments in the reviews about the trouble a few people had putting it together. Grandpa had no trouble; however, he did offer up this piece of advice; don't skip any steps, take your time, and follow the instructions carefully as written.

The crib comes in various colors and is in and out of stock from time to time. We purchased via Amazon Canada since that's where we live.

By the way, it's a girl!

  1. What an excellent idea and choice for the new baby and family. The drawers for storage are a huge plus and turning into a day bed later for many years of use. Certainly an upgrade from what we had years ago. Thanks Barbara.

  2. Oh my this is very nice and I love that the crib can be updated to a day bed! Baby furniture that has several storage compartments allows you to keep baby's room nice and tidy, yet with everything you need close at hand. What a great combination for any parent! Thanks Barbara and I'm glad to see you are enjoying this new chapter in your life too!

  3. What a beautiful crib - truly a beautiful piece of furniture. And the fact that it is so versatile, with the ability to update to a regular bed as baby grows, makes it even better. Congratulations on your expected granddaughter. My 'grandmotherness' is limited to five grandSONS, so I expect a girl will be a special treat in your family. Especially since you have a crop of just boys yourself. :)

  4. What a beautiful crib and I love that it will convert later to a bed for the child (or even in a guest room if preferred). I hated having to store our baby's cribs in the attic until needed again. It seemed so wasteful to me. I love all of the drawers and storage areas on this crib! It makes it multi-functional, which is something I always love in any piece of furniture. Grandpa's excellent advice about taking your time and not skipping any steps is applicable to any shipped to home furniture. Wisdom in action!

  5. Even though I have no firsthand experience with cribs, the many benefits of this one are clear! The convenient height, tons of storage space, built-in changing table, and the ability to convert this piece of furniture to a daybed and then a full bed later on makes it an obvious winner! So glad you and the mom-to-be are having such a good time preparing the room for this much anticipated grandchild. 💗

  6. This crib change table looks lovely and is clearly a very useful item to have in a nursery. Perfect for a family with a new baby and versatile for the future. I don't think you can ever have too much storage space either! How lovely to know you and new mum to be are having a wonderful time planning this nursery :)
