Baby Cribs. Saturday , November 04th , 2017 - 07:29:39 AM
A second regulation deals with holes or decorative cutouts on the headboard. These should not exceed 2 3/8" also to avoid your child`s head being stuck. Purchasing a crib with a solid head board is probably the best way to go. The third regulation by the Commission suggests that you check to make sure that none of the vertical bars on a crib side are broken off. You should be sure that all the bars in the crib are sturdy and intact. Any missing bars will leave a big gap that can cause your child to slip through and fall to the floor.
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.
There are several safety features that you should look for when purchasing a new baby crib. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has enacted regulations to ensure the safety of your baby while in these beds. You should make sure that any baby crib that you may purchase has these specifications. The first regulation states that the vertical bars or slats should be no further apart than 2 3/8" or 60 mm. This prevents the baby`s body being able to fit through them and the child becoming lodged by his head.
