Stefanie Schroeder. Baby Cribs. October 28th , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
Mobiles are fun and a great learning tool, plus a fantastic distraction for babies. Once your baby is able to stand, grasp, sit up or reach up they then can move to being a safety hazard for your child. They are a hazard due to small parts that can be choked on or the strings can get wrapped around your child. If you do purchase a mobile make sure you remove it from their crib when they start to be on the move. Hopefully all these safety tips have helped you and will stop you from needing a trip to the emergency room with your little one.
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.
