Wooden Baby Cribs. Baby cribs made out of wood are by far the oldest and the most reliable kind of crib available in the market. Notwithstanding, innovations and advances in baby furniture, wood is the most trusted material used till date. Available in different patterns and designs, wooden baby cribs come in various price ranges. People belonging to any financial category can find something to suit their taste and budget.
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.
While they`re made with old fashioned techniques, they meet modern safety specifications, and won`t look out of place in your home, either. You can choose the spare, modern looking, but traditional Mission style, styles based on Japanese design work, and many others. Water based finishes, low VOC finishes, and old fashioned oil and wax are popular choices for those who want to show off the beauty of the hardwood and of the construction (and who wouldn`t!)
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.
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.
