Babyletto Scoot 3-in-1 convertible crib Review
Babyletto Scoot is a 3-in-1 convertible crib which converts from crib to toddler bed to daybed as your child grows. Babyletto remained true to itself when designing the Scoot. Like all their cribs, Scoot is simple and elegant!
It has a modern and functional design, without needles bulky sides, or curves and arches on the back. The crib is open on all four sides, so it looks beautiful either placed beside the wall or as a centerpiece of the nursery.

Scoot’s convertibility review
Babyletto Scoot 3-in-1 convertible crib will be with you for many years to come. As the name already told you, you get three beds for one price.
- toddler bed
After your baby outgrows the crib, you can convert it into a toddler bed. The conversion is easy and shouldn’t take you too much time.
- You have to remove the front rail and replace it with included safety guardrail.
- Another important thing while converting Scoot into a toddler bed is the mattress position.
Babyletto Scoot has four different mattress height positions. The highest setting is suitable for newborns and very convenient for parents. Reaching over the front rail and placing your sleeping baby into the crib was never easier. Of course, you have to gradually lower the mattress position along with your baby’s growth. You can find more about proper mattresses for the Scoot below.
I am happy to tell you that a safety guardrail for a toddler bed is included in the price! That is far from the usual practice on the baby crib market.
While buying a 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 convertible crib, parents often don’t know they will have to buy additional parts for conversions.
[stextbox id=’ovcka’ image=’null’]Numbers tell you how many possible conversions a particular model has, not what is included in the package! But not with Babyletto! You get everything the name promise with the crib![/stextbox]
Because of that, the price of Babyletto Scoot 3-in-1 convertible crib may seem high on the first glance. But compering to the combined price of other cribs and their additional parts, there are no significant differences anymore.
Another plus of included safety guardrail is the convenience. If you purchase a crib mattress that grows with the Scoot, you don’t have to worry about your child’s sleeping arrangement for many years.

You can remove the safety guardrail and transform the Scoot into a daybed when you are sure your child won’t fall out of bed anymore.
And that is not all! I am impressed by the fact that Babyletto didn’t put a 4-in-1 tag on the Scoot.
Why? Because you can actually convert it into one more bed!
With the additional purchase of a Junior bed conversion kit, you can convert the Scoot into a junior bed.
Of course, you will have to buy a suitable mattress too, but it is nice to know you have that option.
Same as many baby crib manufacturers, Babyletto could name Scoot a 4-in-1 convertible crib, but they didn’t. They don’t want to mislead their customers, which we appreciate!
- Convertible: yes
- Number of conversions: 3 (4, with Junior Bed Conversion Kit)
- Conversion types: crib, toddler bed, and daybed
- Weight Capacity: toddler/daybed = 50lb
The Babyletto Scoot’s design
Scoot is a standard, full-size baby crib. It has a sturdy design and doesn’t wobble at all.
It has four stationary sides, so it doesn’t have a drop side. While dropping side cribs were very convenient for short moms, they are forbidden since 2011. There were too many injuries and even a few tragic deaths because of that mechanism.
[stextbox id=’ovcka’ image=’null’]Whatever you choose a Babyletto Scoot or any other crib, it shouldn’t have drop sides! It is just not worth the risk![/stextbox]
Scoot is made of solid New Zealand pine wood, coated with a child-safe non-toxic finish in a variety of colors. Its horizontal lines pair with its angular feet, to create a retro-inspired, charming vibe for the nursery. With such design and a variety of different colors, I am sure you won’t have problems matching it with any nursery furniture.
But, if you want to pair it with Babyletto’s furniture, we had found out it matches with Scoot 3-drawer changer dresser with removable changing tray and Madison swivel glider perfectly.

[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’Is Babyletto Scoot suitable for petite moms?‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]
In our opinion, it is!
First of all, it is a low profile crib! That is because of its design, not lower rails! So the safety of the crib is not compromised. Your child won’t escape out of the crib sooner either.
Because of the minimalist design, reaching over the crib’s rail is much easier than on the cribs with bulky design.

Regards to their basic features, there are no differences. While Lolly is not compatible with Junior conversion kit, the other two are. And that is the only difference in their features.
So you can choose amongst them according to their design and price. Babyletto Scoot is the cheapest amongst them!

[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’Is Babyletto Scoot a portable crib?‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]
No, it isn’t! While you can move it a little to vacuum underneath, it is certainly not portable!
If you want a full-size portable crib by Babyletto Maki is a really good choice!
[stextbox id=’TABLE OF CONTENT’ caption=’Does it have under crib storage?‘ collapsing=”true” collapsed=”true” image=’null’]
Babyletto Scoot doesn’t have a drawer underneath. There is a little space under the crib, so if you intend to use a crib skirt, you can hide a few baby belongings under the crib.
