Baby Cribs. Friday , October 20th , 2017 - 08:28:30 AM
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.
If you have purchased a second hand crib or even using the family heirloom crib that you slept in as a baby, make sure it still meets today`s standards. If it does not meet today`s standards either get it altered or purchase a brand new crib. Things to look out for in the crib from your youth is the type of paint used as it could contain lead, the space between slats and if the wood frame has splintered at all.
