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.
Baby Crib Safety - Everything You Need to Know. As parents there is nothing more important than your babies safety. And the place your baby spends most of its time is their crib. It is said a baby spends at least 70% of their time sleeping. If you think that your baby is protected at all times when sleeping, then think again. There are many thing you can do to make sure your babies crib is safe.
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.
Another valuable safety tip is to check to ensure that the crib mattress fits inside the crib properly. The standard mattress size for a crib is 51 5/8" by 27 ¼", although some cribs on the market today do not use the standard size. To check to make sure that the crib mattress is the right size for the crib, place your fingers between the mattress and the crib sides. If you can fit two fingers side by side, the mattress is too large and may enable your baby to slide between the mattress and the crib side and end up with the mattress on top of him. Mattress firmness is also important. As soft mattresses have been linked with Sudden Infants Death Syndrome you should make sure that your baby`s mattress is firm and solid.
The crib mattress is very important, and just like adult mattresses, you have a lot of choices. The mattresses come in extra firm, super firm, mini crib size with and without coil construction, compact crib size, organic cotton, spring-free, innerspring, tender vibes, and there is even one that is formed of coconut palm fibers with latex-free foam and pure cotton.
