Should You Consider Iron Baby Cribs For Your Child`s Bedroom? Iron baby cribs are an option to many parents. However, have you considered if this is the right type of crib for your little one? Although they have many benefits, there are a few downsides to solid iron baby cribs. Before you invest money into one, make sure it is truly your best option. Buying with confidence is vital to making a good purchase for your baby.
Baby Cribs Reviews - Europa Baby Geneva Convertible Crib - Our Opinion: There are a number of informative reviews on the Europa Baby Geneva Convertible Baby Crib. The crib is positively considered to be sturdy with a good finish, this is obviously important as cribs should not be flimsy or liable to causing splinters in parents or babies fingers, so a properly finished and robust crib is best and safest for all. Of course most cribs will require self assembly and therefore as with this crib it is important that it is easily assembled with clear instructions supplied.
To have casters or not to have casters that is the question! Now casters can make life easier for parents with moving the crib around the house or room to room as needed but cribs on casters can easily be tipped or pushed over. It is a safer option to go without casters. When it comes to your babies crib bedding it is best to go for a firm mattress and minimal bedding and items in the crib. Keep away from using things such as bumpers and cushions in the crib as these could potentially cause suffocation.
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.
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.
