Your baby's going to invest an enormous chunk of the very first 2-3 years of their life in a crib, so ensure you view it being an investment — meaning getting one that's created to last and the safest crib possible. All baby cribs manufactured after 2011 are needed to meet U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission standard; one particular requirements is that the date of manufacture needs to be printed somewhere on the crib in order to check.

Also important is to test for crib recalls at and the Keeping Babies Safe site before purchasing one, as baby goods are recalled for safety issues pretty frequently.

Some parents who live in small apartments might be drawn toward a tiny crib, which (obviously) takes up less space when compared to a full-size crib. It's a bit of a crapshoot, because some babies might grow out of mini cribs before they're ready to transition to a child bed, so parents could end up spending for a bigger crib later. But in terms of safety, portable or mini cribs are fine provided that they meet the current safety standards.

The biggest thing is that the mattress is the right size for the crib, because that you do not want space between the pad and edges of the crib.

To help keep crib time secure, remember the "bare is best" concept: no soft bedding, no crib bumpers, pillows, blankets, comforters, or toys, she says. And keep consitently the crib from windows, curtains, and any chords that the baby might use to pull him or herself out from the crib or could pose strangulation hazards.

Here really are a few specific things parents should look for in a safe crib:
- Crib slats or bars should be no wider than 2 3/8 inches apart. Some experts suggest gauging whether a soft drink can would fit through — if so, they're dangerously far apart.
- Mattresses must be dense, firm, and not sag under your baby's weight. In addition they need to achieve every corner of the crib, without spaces across the sides.
- Headboards must certanly be solid without any decorative cutouts, and also make sure the corners don't have pointy embellishments in it that kids'clothing could get caught on.
- Cribs with a drop-side no further meet safety requirements (so you need to say no when someone tries to provide you with one).
- Don't make use of bumpers in the crib; there's no evidence they make kids safer and older kids might use them to greatly help them climb from the crib.
- Ensure the crib doesn't wobble whenever you shake it but feels sturdy. If you have almost any queries about exactly where along with tips on how to make use of, it is possible to call us with our own internet site. If it shakes it may have been come up with improperly.
- Search for any screws, nails, or glue that stick out anywhere on the crib. And if it's painted, the paint shouldn't be peeling or splintery.
- If the crib is on wheels, make sure they lock, especially if the crib will be on a wood or tile floor.
