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.
While there`s no such thing as an organic certification for furniture, there are cribs made according to the same kinds of philosophy that backs the organic food movement - no toxins, solid natural ingredients, and care for the earth in production. Solid wood baby cribs made with a minimum of environmental damage and featuring low VOC (volatile organic chemical) finishes are an important way to keep your child healthy, throughout his or her life. Plus, many of these cribs grow along with your child, converting first to a day bed, then to a full sized bed.
Some of the newest designs on the market are in round baby cribs. There are round baby cribs with canopies, round baby cribs with rockers, round cribs made of hardwoods, and round baby cribs that are two-lobed for twins.
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.
Wooden cribs are durable and if properly maintained, that is, regularly polished, painted and treated with anti termite solutions, they can last for as long as ten to thirteen years. They come with childproof latches as well as drop-sides that ease strain on caregivers` backs, assuring both infant safety and comfortable handling. These cribs also come with optional storage drawers that can have a multi purpose usage. The bedding used can also be adjusted according to one`s requirement. For example, its height can be decreased or increased using mattress adjusters. Such cribs are painted with special non-toxic paints and are given finishing touches in a manner that removes hard edges. This is done in order to avoid situations in which the child gets hurt due to rough edges or falls sick due to the harmful contents of the paint.
