Opinions on Fixed Side Rail Cribs?

Good Questions

Q:I am looking at cribs for my first baby and have found a style that I like. I definitely want a modern looking crib with white and birch/maple finishes. I am leaning toward the Moda crib from Room and Board. However, I am a little concerned that the side rail is fixed...

I checked out some other similar cribs like the Oeuf Classic, the Oeuf Sparrow, and the Spot On Square Hiya. All of these seem to have fixed side rails as well. I have three sisters with children and they all have a bit more of a traditional style than I do. However, they love that the side rail on their cribs goes up and down for when the babies are a bit older. I am only 5'1" so I worry a bit about being able to reach the mattress on its lowest position.

The fixed side rails must be popular or else people wouldn't be making so many cribs like that. Can anyone sing the praises of the fixed side rail?
