Baby Crib Safety - Everything You Need to Know. As parents there is nothing more important than your babies safety. And the place your baby spends most of its time is their crib. It is said a baby spends at least 70% of their time sleeping. If you think that your baby is protected at all times when sleeping, then think again. There are many thing you can do to make sure your babies crib is safe.
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.
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.
A convertible crib that changes as baby grows is one option that you might want to consider. When baby first comes home from the hospital, the crib is ready for him/her, with the sides up, providing a secure sleeping place. When baby gets older, and is ready to get into and out of bed by him/herself, one side converts to a partial railing that is only a few inches high. Before you know it, your baby is no longer a toddler, but a young child, and the convertible crib is ready for that transition. One side of the crib can be completely removed, letting the crib look like a daybed. Whenever you and your child are ready, the other side can be removed, leaving you with a bed that will last for several years. It has no railings and a gracefully curved headboard and footboard.
An organic baby crib might be expensive, but it`s worth it for your child, and this kind of craftsmanship ensures that it`ll last for many years.
