Baby Cribs. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 04:41:38 AM
To have casters or not to have casters that is the question! Now casters can make life easier for parents with moving the crib around the house or room to room as needed but cribs on casters can easily be tipped or pushed over. It is a safer option to go without casters. When it comes to your babies crib bedding it is best to go for a firm mattress and minimal bedding and items in the crib. Keep away from using things such as bumpers and cushions in the crib as these could potentially cause suffocation.
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 convertible crib that changes as baby grows is one option that you might want to consider. When baby first comes home from the hospital, the crib is ready for him/her, with the sides up, providing a secure sleeping place. When baby gets older, and is ready to get into and out of bed by him/herself, one side converts to a partial railing that is only a few inches high. Before you know it, your baby is no longer a toddler, but a young child, and the convertible crib is ready for that transition. One side of the crib can be completely removed, letting the crib look like a daybed. Whenever you and your child are ready, the other side can be removed, leaving you with a bed that will last for several years. It has no railings and a gracefully curved headboard and footboard.
