How To Purchase A Safe Baby Crib. Babies are a wonderful addition to any family, but can add up to a lot of added expense. One of the most expensive items that you will purchase for your baby is a baby crib. It can also be one of the most dangerous.
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.
That makes the additional expense of this type of baby crib well worth it, and even minimizes its environmental impact. After all, every piece of furniture you don`t have to buy is a set of resources you don`t have to be responsible for using. In the long run, this kind of investment will save you money and reduce your environmental footprint. That, and the kind of quality craftsmanship that goes into these beds make them worth the cost.
The mattress height can be carefully altered to different heights, the heights are selected according to the individual baby`s size, and there are three different height positions of the mattress support to choose from.
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.
