Stefanie Schroeder. Baby Cribs. October 29th , 2017.
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.
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.
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!)
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.
Look for cribs made from solid hardwood by craftspeople who know what they`re doing. Many companies interested in traditional style, quality furniture are turning to Amish craftsmen for their products, and the results are worth it. This kind of crib is handmade, and can be made to order, so it`ll work with your particular needs, even if they`re a little unusual.
