Baby Cribs. Friday , October 13th , 2017 - 07:12:01 AM
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.
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.
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.
