First Baby Crib. You are getting ready to welcome your very first baby. In order to get the nursery ready, you need to make a lot of decisions. One of the most important is about your baby`s crib. After all, he/she will be spending a lot of time sleeping and you want to make sure that you have a baby crib that is safe, comfortable, and easy to get baby into and out of.
Should You Consider Iron Baby Cribs For Your Child`s Bedroom? Iron baby cribs are an option to many parents. However, have you considered if this is the right type of crib for your little one? Although they have many benefits, there are a few downsides to solid iron baby cribs. Before you invest money into one, make sure it is truly your best option. Buying with confidence is vital to making a good purchase for your baby.
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.
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.
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.
