When searching for one of these pieces of baby furniture, you should keep in mind that according to some statistics, approximately 50 infant deaths and 9000 infant injuries occur each year in crib-related accidents. Because of these facts, you should always check to ensure that any crib that you may want purchase is safe for your baby.
While they`re made with old fashioned techniques, they meet modern safety specifications, and won`t look out of place in your home, either. You can choose the spare, modern looking, but traditional Mission style, styles based on Japanese design work, and many others. Water based finishes, low VOC finishes, and old fashioned oil and wax are popular choices for those who want to show off the beauty of the hardwood and of the construction (and who wouldn`t!)
A second regulation deals with holes or decorative cutouts on the headboard. These should not exceed 2 3/8" also to avoid your child`s head being stuck. Purchasing a crib with a solid head board is probably the best way to go. The third regulation by the Commission suggests that you check to make sure that none of the vertical bars on a crib side are broken off. You should be sure that all the bars in the crib are sturdy and intact. Any missing bars will leave a big gap that can cause your child to slip through and fall to the floor.
If you have purchased a second hand crib or even using the family heirloom crib that you slept in as a baby, make sure it still meets today`s standards. If it does not meet today`s standards either get it altered or purchase a brand new crib. Things to look out for in the crib from your youth is the type of paint used as it could contain lead, the space between slats and if the wood frame has splintered at all.
