Best Cribs for Babies

There is nothing more exciting for a couple than the well anticipated news of arrival of their bundle of joys. Along with excitement and happiness, this news also brings in anxiousness, especially for the first time parents. They are so much excited to shop for those cute little baby products but are not really sure from where to start. Well, how about starting from purchasing the baby crib? Well, as we know, a newborn baby spends all of her time in the baby crib. In case you are confused about buying cribs for babies, then you can always refer to the following part of the article.

Choosing the Best Cribs for Babies

Baby safety should be the first thing to consider when it comes to buying the best baby cribs. In case you are not aware, let me tell you that the Consumer Products Safety Commission has set a few rules and regulations for baby cribs that should strictly be followed by the baby crib manufacturers as well as customers. One of the most important safety regulations for baby cribs is the slats of the cribs. According to CPSC, no two baby crib slats should have more than 2.375 inches distance between each other. They should also not have any kind of cracks or ridges on them. All the decorative items on the cribs like the corner posts and crib knobs should not rise more than 1/16 inch. Baby bedding inside the cribs should also be reconsidered if it is not comfortable for the baby. Make sure baby mattresses and other crib bedding products that you choose are made of breathable materials, so that the baby can breathe well even when she sleeps on her tummy.


One of the things that are not mentioned in the above part of the article are the room size and size of the baby crib. You definitely need to reconsider the size of the room as well as the crib that you want to buy, prior to its purchase. You can choose those decorative large baby cribs if you are looking for cribs for a baby nursery, otherwise, smaller baby cribs are the best choice for you. Baby cribs are available in various types like double drop side slates, single drop side slates and stationary side slates. According to the CPSC, the double drop as well as single drop side cribs are not good for child safety and hence you should not purchase them. However, you may like to purchase those convertible beds that can be used as baby cribs and then be converted into toddler beds as the baby grows older!
