The Price of Iron Baby Cribs. Price may be a limiting factor if you want to consider iron baby cribs. Material costs are higher and the life span of the crib tends to be longer when dealing with iron cribs. For these reasons, most are very expensive. If you are buying baby furniture on a tight budget, you may want to reconsider hardwood options. These are just as stable and secure as iron baby cribs, but come at a far lower price. If you are still set on iron cribs, then get your pocketbook ready. A cheap iron model costs about $500 or more. Some parents spend upwards of $1,000 for more extravagant iron baby cribs. All that elegance and durability costs money.
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!)
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.
That makes the additional expense of this type of baby crib well worth it, and even minimizes its environmental impact. After all, every piece of furniture you don`t have to buy is a set of resources you don`t have to be responsible for using. In the long run, this kind of investment will save you money and reduce your environmental footprint. That, and the kind of quality craftsmanship that goes into these beds make them worth the cost.
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.
