Safeguard Your Little One With The Best Baby Cribs
As parents, we want to get the best for our children. We should provide them with the best functional yet very safe furniture since day one. To help you get the best, here are some of the features of the best baby cribs that your child deserves. Providing your child with a safe sleeping place is job number one for parents.
1. The construction of the crib should be child-friendly.
This is perhaps the most obvious consideration in the lot. Baby cribs should have a seamless construction, meaning, the planks, boards, bars or springs that make up the crib should be put together in such a way that there are no sharp edges and other protrusions that can scratch or hurt your baby. Therefore, baby cribs that were put together by nails have lots of intricate designs and carvings with sharp edges and metal-plastic combinations with lots of exposed joints and springs should be avoided.
2. The crib should be able to take pressure and weight very well.
Most parents allow their children to sleep in baby cribs until they are a year or two. At this stages children learn to crawl around, explore and even prop themselves up to stand or even jump! Furthermore, people would be leaning on to it all the time to take care of the baby inside. The last thing you want is a collapsing crib. Check if the construction of the crib can take the weight and the pressure that it will be subjected to once you decide to take it home.
3. The materials used should be safe and non-toxic.
There are hardwoods that have natural irritants that are in the wood that can harm your baby’s skin and there are paints that have fumes that can harm your baby when inhaled. Ask your supplier for the properties of the raw materials used to make the baby cribs that they sell to make sure that they are indeed safe.
