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.
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.
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.
Other safety issues that are not addressed by the Commission but are still important for the safety of your baby include baby cribs that come equipped with wheels. A new baby crib on roller wheels may seem like a good purchase. However, there are certain factors that you need to consider when looking at this style. If your house has hardwood floors, the slightest bump will cause the crib to begin rolling. The crib will also roll if you lean against it as you are bending over your baby. Older siblings can also be a danger to the baby in a crib with wheels. Your other children may push it around, causing it to overturn or slide down stairs. You can purchase a baby crib on wheels that has a locking mechanism, but it is probably a better idea to avoid this style completely.
There are certain shops and sites through which customers can even get their cribs custom made, with their choice of wood (of the likes of birch, basswood, hardwood, pine or mahogany) and with accessories or attachments made out of different materials, such as steel, plastic, aluminium, oxidised iron or wood. Naturally light weight and easily movable, foldable hardwood cribs have become a popular choice with new parents. Since small wheels are attached to the foot of the cribs, manoeuvring them from one place to another becomes a simple task. The presence of casters in such cribs also contributes towards their portability.
