An organic baby crib might be expensive, but it`s worth it for your child, and this kind of craftsmanship ensures that it`ll last for many years.
First Baby Crib. You are getting ready to welcome your very first baby. In order to get the nursery ready, you need to make a lot of decisions. One of the most important is about your baby`s crib. After all, he/she will be spending a lot of time sleeping and you want to make sure that you have a baby crib that is safe, comfortable, and easy to get baby into and out of.
There are several safety features that you should look for when purchasing a new baby crib. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has enacted regulations to ensure the safety of your baby while in these beds. You should make sure that any baby crib that you may purchase has these specifications. The first regulation states that the vertical bars or slats should be no further apart than 2 3/8" or 60 mm. This prevents the baby`s body being able to fit through them and the child becoming lodged by his head.
While there`s no such thing as an organic certification for furniture, there are cribs made according to the same kinds of philosophy that backs the organic food movement - no toxins, solid natural ingredients, and care for the earth in production. Solid wood baby cribs made with a minimum of environmental damage and featuring low VOC (volatile organic chemical) finishes are an important way to keep your child healthy, throughout his or her life. Plus, many of these cribs grow along with your child, converting first to a day bed, then to a full sized bed.
Other safety issues that are not addressed by the Commission but are still important for the safety of your baby include baby cribs that come equipped with wheels. A new baby crib on roller wheels may seem like a good purchase. However, there are certain factors that you need to consider when looking at this style. If your house has hardwood floors, the slightest bump will cause the crib to begin rolling. The crib will also roll if you lean against it as you are bending over your baby. Older siblings can also be a danger to the baby in a crib with wheels. Your other children may push it around, causing it to overturn or slide down stairs. You can purchase a baby crib on wheels that has a locking mechanism, but it is probably a better idea to avoid this style completely.
