Baby Cribs. Saturday , November 04th , 2017 - 07:51:43 AM
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.
Today`s standards state that there should be no more than 60mm`s between the cribs bars. If a larger gap is used you baby my slip through the bars or become stuck in them. Make sure your crib is made out of hardwood such as oak, ash or maple. Use of a hardwood means that no matter what your baby/toddler does the cot pieces will not become loose or broken.
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.
