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.
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!)
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.
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.
