How To Purchase A Safe Baby Crib. Babies are a wonderful addition to any family, but can add up to a lot of added expense. One of the most expensive items that you will purchase for your baby is a baby crib. It can also be one of the most dangerous.
When searching for one of these pieces of baby furniture, you should keep in mind that according to some statistics, approximately 50 infant deaths and 9000 infant injuries occur each year in crib-related accidents. Because of these facts, you should always check to ensure that any crib that you may want purchase is safe for your baby.
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.
Another option is the round baby crib with spindles. This is a majestic type of crib which creates a royal haven for your little one. It has features such as a 5-inch firm foam mattress, two-position mattress support, wood support bar across the crib, wheels with locking casters and a two-hand latch release front bar. It has a metal canopy which is detachable. With this type of round baby crib, more room is created compared to that of a rectangular type of crib.
A second regulation deals with holes or decorative cutouts on the headboard. These should not exceed 2 3/8" also to avoid your child`s head being stuck. Purchasing a crib with a solid head board is probably the best way to go. The third regulation by the Commission suggests that you check to make sure that none of the vertical bars on a crib side are broken off. You should be sure that all the bars in the crib are sturdy and intact. Any missing bars will leave a big gap that can cause your child to slip through and fall to the floor.
