Looking for the right baby cribs is an essential aspect parenting. A lot of infant accidents are due to wrong cribs. So choosing a proper and safe baby crib is what you need to keep your baby safe all the time.
If you’re browsing over a number of cribs at a shop, give each crib a shake test because this will give you a feel of how strong the crib is no matter what material the it’s made of. Safety is the most crucial feature of cribs. Check out that the railing slats should be less than 2 inches. Cribs do have dropsides, which when lowered should be at least nine inches from the mattress support and 26 inches above when raised. Ensure that the dropsides are fixed and locked in place and don’t easily detach.
The crib mattress should feel comfy and fit securely with a one-inch allowance from the crib sides.
Cribs can be made of metal or wood, and they can be standard, convertible, canopy, and round. Convertible cribs can save you from buying a toddler bed in the future, while a round crib is a popular choice for new parents.
Inspect the material so to find out if there are loose splinters, peeling paint, and sharp protrusions.
If you’re after wheeled cribs, opt for those with wheel locks, which allow cribs to stay in place when you don’t need to move the crib.
Please avoid buying second hand cribs because they may be too old and obsolete. There’s new government policy for cribs. Old cribs may contain lead paint and have slats that are wide apart. In other words, old cribs are likely to have safety problems.
