I was very excited when I ordered this crib two years ago. It offered additional storage that I needed and was impressed with the fact that it could convert into a toddler bed and what I THOUGHT also into a regular youth bed that a standard twin size mattress would fit in. Fast forward to year 2 of my child who is ready for a toddler bed. We took it apart to move it into a different room, and the sides where the headboard is do not lock in; the screws do not fit in securely and this is the only time we have taken it apart. It's as if they are stripped. So, we decided to maybe use liquid nail glue to ensure it wouldn't fall apart. We also noticed that our two year old doesn't sleep well in it; she moves around a lot and sleeps better on a couch or her sister's twin size bed. So, because we happened to have an extra twin size mattress, we decided to just pitch the crib mattress and use the twin one. It was then determined that the standard size twin mattress DOES NOT fit. The user manual does indicate that the mattress needed is 68"x27-1/4" x 4", which MUST be CUSTOM ordered. When I called AFG, they referred me to this website: www.babyfactory2u.com. What a pain. Not happy that I have to spend extra $$ on a custom size mattress. Will be cheaper just to pitch it (I'll keep the detachable changing table piece) and buy a regular metal bed frame. I say this because, even after 6 months of use, the drawers knicked easily and the wood is very cheap. I only gave this a two stars because having the changing table attached when my child was an infant did come in handy.
