Of course many parents looking out for a new crib for their new baby will have certain factors that they feel are most important for them. These factors may include them having a strict or limitless budget, high safety ratings, color, or design. There are many cribs to choose from and it is up to the individual to make the correct choice for their circumstances.
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.
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.
Of course safety should be a priority when searching for a baby crib, and therefore safety is a priority for companies such as LaJobi, as their Europa Baby Collections are safety certified and meet the latest safety standards criteria, they are all JPMA certified and conform to CPSC and ASTM safety standards. The finishes and items that are painted are free from lead and heavy metals.
An organic baby crib might be expensive, but it`s worth it for your child, and this kind of craftsmanship ensures that it`ll last for many years.
