Why Look at Organic Baby Cribs? We all want the best for our children, but many people don`t stop and think about whether the products they`re using for their children really are the best. Babies are extremely sensitive to chemicals in their environments - much more than adults - and exposure to toxins can cause real problems later on. The problem is that the bedding, clothing, and commercial furniture you buy isn`t necessarily free of these toxins. If you want to be sure that you`re doing the best for your child, investing in a high quality, well made, "organic" baby crib could be the right option for you.
Of course safety should be a priority when searching for a baby crib, and therefore safety is a priority for companies such as LaJobi, as their Europa Baby Collections are safety certified and meet the latest safety standards criteria, they are all JPMA certified and conform to CPSC and ASTM safety standards. The finishes and items that are painted are free from lead and heavy metals.
Mobiles are fun and a great learning tool, plus a fantastic distraction for babies. Once your baby is able to stand, grasp, sit up or reach up they then can move to being a safety hazard for your child. They are a hazard due to small parts that can be choked on or the strings can get wrapped around your child. If you do purchase a mobile make sure you remove it from their crib when they start to be on the move. Hopefully all these safety tips have helped you and will stop you from needing a trip to the emergency room with your little one.
Another valuable safety tip is to check to ensure that the crib mattress fits inside the crib properly. The standard mattress size for a crib is 51 5/8" by 27 ¼", although some cribs on the market today do not use the standard size. To check to make sure that the crib mattress is the right size for the crib, place your fingers between the mattress and the crib sides. If you can fit two fingers side by side, the mattress is too large and may enable your baby to slide between the mattress and the crib side and end up with the mattress on top of him. Mattress firmness is also important. As soft mattresses have been linked with Sudden Infants Death Syndrome you should make sure that your baby`s mattress is firm and solid.
Wooden cribs are durable and if properly maintained, that is, regularly polished, painted and treated with anti termite solutions, they can last for as long as ten to thirteen years. They come with childproof latches as well as drop-sides that ease strain on caregivers` backs, assuring both infant safety and comfortable handling. These cribs also come with optional storage drawers that can have a multi purpose usage. The bedding used can also be adjusted according to one`s requirement. For example, its height can be decreased or increased using mattress adjusters. Such cribs are painted with special non-toxic paints and are given finishing touches in a manner that removes hard edges. This is done in order to avoid situations in which the child gets hurt due to rough edges or falls sick due to the harmful contents of the paint.
