How to Choose the Right Baby Crib

Baby Cribs

No matter how many times you've turned to the Internet, or rented a popular infomercial, you've still never quite understood what baby cribs are all about. What most people seem to find in these ads are just a few basic pieces of furniture - the basic frame, and maybe a mattress or two. And you know that this is where most parents get started, with the confusion of knowing what's necessary and what isn't. But there is much more to choosing the right crib than just buying the first one you see.

 

Though you've probably been collecting infant bedding for quite some time now, you know that safety is still the number one priority when it comes to baby cribs, regardless of the price tag. You want a sturdy frame with solid locking features to keep your baby safe and secure. Then you want just the basic necessities - a waterproof mattress, some quality fabric coverings, and some comfortable bedding.

 

You might be shocked to learn that this is actually a three-part process that starts with the selection of a stroller. If you don't have a crib, you'll need to buy a side-saddle carrier. This allows you to place your little one on the stroller until he or she is old enough to roll up into a cozy full-size bed. A parent can also use a bassinet, but that type of cradle is designed to safely hold toddlers. As long as it is made from a non-toxic material, it will keep toddlers from suffocating while they sleep in their cradle.

 

There are a variety of sizes and kinds of beds available, too, so it's important to choose one that meets your specific needs. Most infants spend the majority of their time sleeping in their beds, so it's important to choose one that will fit their bed size. You should also check to see if the bed can be converted into a toddler bed, which will make your life easier when your child outgrows the crib.

 

You'll find convertible infant beds available for newborns and even for preemies. Convertible cribs provide a convenient way to convert the baby's crib to a toddler bed. This is also an excellent choice if your child is beginning to outgrow his crib and needs more room. Because these infant beds can convert into toddler beds, you won't need to buy another crib set. This is particularly helpful if you have more than one child. You may be able to save money by buying the convertible crib first and then using the other cribs as baby grows.

 

Safety is another issue that parents must take into account. Since most convertible cribs are made with sturdy plastic, safety should be a high priority. The best cribs on the market have safety locks to prevent infants from climbing out of the bed. Cribs with safety locks can be locked from the inside, preventing small fingers from being trapped. In addition, you should make sure the convertible crib is properly assembled so that all the parts fit correctly.

 

Baby crib safety standards vary from state to state, so it's important that you understand what those standards are before you buy. In general, cribs meant for children under the age of one should meet federal crib safety standards. Cribs intended for older kids and teens may not meet federal safety standards. To make sure you're purchasing a safe crib, always check with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which sets the crib safety standards. When shopping online, read the terms and conditions to make sure that you are buying a safe crib.

 

Baby cribs are an important investment, as they will play an important role in many aspects of your lives from childhood through adolescence. Your baby's sleep is very precious, so choosing the right crib is critical to the health and well-being of your child. By keeping these considerations in mind when shopping for cribs, you will help ensure that you are making an investment that will last you a lifetime. With proper care and maintenance, your babies crib will provide you and your family with years of quality sleep and comfort.
