1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for the baby crib

1.1 Basic is Best

First and foremost, there is nothing more important than safety when it comes to baby equipment. The safest cribs have the most straightforward designs, no extra accessories and decorative parts such as scrollwork or finials. There are chances that the child’s clothing can get stuck in such minutely designed features and make the baby feel uneasy. Safety standards for cribs concentrate heavily on testing durability and displaying required labels, warnings, and instructions. Mattress support, structural integrity and slat strength are one of the safety standards which are mandated.

Safety standards for cribs concentrate heavily on testing durability and displaying required labels, warnings, and instructions. Mattress support, structural integrity and slat strength are one of the safety standards which are mandated.

1.2 Do Not Buy Drop Sides

Full-sized cribs and portable cribs are required to eliminate drop-sides from the design, which are made to open up from one side for taking the baby out of the crib to satisfy the Consumer Product Safety standards. These sorts of designs have proved dangerous in the past. According to statistics, drop-side cribs have caused 32 deaths in the past decade. In case you have used this particular crib in the past, now is an excellent time to change the pick.

In case you have used this particular crib in the past, now is an excellent time to change the pick.

1.3 Single Drop Gates

Single folding side cribs, single drop gates allow you to unfold a half portion of the gates instead of doing it to the top side. This makes placing the baby inside and getting it out easier while also maintaining safety.

1.4 Mattress Height

The standard full-sized cribs are positioned at least a height of 2 mattresses; depending on the model, it could also go up to 3 or 4 beds high. Hence, as the baby grows up and can partially stand by support or sit up in the crib, it is time for you to adjust or even lower the height of the mattress to prevent the baby from tipping over the side of the crib. Some cribs models require adjusting screws, nuts and bolts to lower the height of the mattress inside the crib. The ideal distance between the bed and the top of the crib's side should be around 26 inches.

The ideal distance between the bed and the top of the crib's side should be around 26 inches.

1.5 Mattress Supports

The most widely used mattress support is a stiff spring-suspended metal frame. There are also one-piece boards used as mattress support in a few cribs. Some cribs have metal hangers that are screwed into the wooden frame to allow you to change the mattress's height as required. The mattress supports are designed to be easily adjustable. The mattress support must stand firm in their positions not to move or dislocate while changing the sheets, adjusting the baby, or pushing upwards from underneath the crib.

The mattress support must stand firm in their positions not to move or dislocate while changing the sheets, adjusting the baby, or pushing upwards from underneath the crib.

1.6 Sides and Railings

The railing and the cribs' sides hold the spindles/slats in place. These slats are attached to the bottom and the top fence. This is usually done using a nail or glue. A standard practice established for the slats' positioning is to maintain at least 2 ⅜ inches distance between adjacent slats. It is essential to determine if the crib satisfied all the requirements and standards as this directly reflects on the child’s safety. Finials on corners are supposed to be at a height above 16 inches to avoid any collision with a child.

1.7 Teething Rails

A very significant addition to the crib are teething rails designed for babies who tend to gnaw at the rails, keeping their gums safe and the crib rail protected. They are made up of plastic and have a smooth surface.

1.8 Wheels/Casters

Many cribs are equipped with plastic wheels or casters, which enable you to move the crib around your room easily. However, crib models without the wheels or casters are always a better choice as an ideal crib is hard to pass a standard door length, which would require you to dismantle the crib to move it into another room. For purposes of safety, it is always advised to get a crib that has a brake lock on the wheels /casters as it would restrict the crib moving from the baby’s movement and also keep it safe from other children who would play around the baby.

1.9 Convertibility

When it is time for the baby to shift to a toddler bed from a crib, you can benefit from a convertible crib.

Convertible cribs are easy to be switched to toddler beds. Just add one rail and remove one side of the crib. These instructions are ideally given in the manual or booklet. It is effortless to get a toddler bed from a crib as there are no extreme significant changes. To convert into a full-size bed, you will need a few extra parts and equipment, which aren’t generally available with the stock purchase. These parts could be stabilising rails, support rails or bed rails. The fence explicitly used for the toddlers is the significant difference when converting a crib into a toddler bed or a daybed, as it is vital to keep the baby from rolling over onto the floor. If you are flexible on the budget, you can even go for a convertible crib that can easily switch into a full-size bed. However, there will be few parts that you will be required to buy separately, like bed rails, support and mattresses. The long opposite sides of the crib can be used as a headboard and a footboard, respectively.

1.10 Drawer

To store kid’s accessories, toys and more such things, a lot of cribs provide a drawer under the support structure as well. You can access all your baby’s material/collection instantly here. While you make the purchase, pay attention to the quality of the drawer material. More complex materials like Fibreboard are known to be suitable for heavy use.

1.11 Construction Materials

The most widely used material in the manufacturing of cribs is wood. However, apart from wood, there is a lot of variety of material that you might witness while you go shopping for a crib. Companies also use oaks, maples, natural wood or classic material, which falls under lighter stains, for making cribs. There are painted finishing woods such as off white, washed whites and pasted green. The colour can vary from blue, pink, yellow to others.

2. Use Cases: The best baby crib for you

2.1 I have a limited budget. Which is the best crib for my child?

Economy Cribs! They are not as shiny and flashy in design, but they are sturdy and robust enough to keep your baby safe and sound.

Economy Cribs! They are not as shiny and flashy in design, but they are sturdy and robust enough to keep your baby safe and sound.

2.2 I am looking for a better finish and affordable crib. Which type of crib will be best in my case?

The Mid-priced cribs.

There is a lot of variety available in the market for mid-priced cribs. They have better finishing and also a better body structure as compared to the economic model. There are different kinds of finishing available for the wood material, such as golden maple, deep mahogany or Scandinavian styled natural wood. The end boards in these cribs are given a smoother finish and have slats and bars on all sides. These slats are comparatively thicker; they come in different shapes like cylindrical slats or flat slats with rounded edges. Heavier springs are used to support the mattress. Break-locks for the caster and the wheels provide a stable crib that would not be easily disturbed at the baby's slightest movement.

An ideal crib in this price range will have the slats tightened correctly to the sides, a gentle smooth and consistent finishing and no nails poking out or residues of glue and extra paint. Drawers are always a cherry on the top.

There are also convertible cribs available in this price range. 3 in 1 crib, which makes it possible to convert them into a full-sized bed or a daybed. You can also use the back panel of the daybed as a sofa. When you use the crib as a bed, the headboard and footboard can be made up out of the crib's long sides.

In addition to this, there are 4 in 1 crib. Yes, you heard it right. These convertible cribs can be switched to daybeds, full-sized beds, and toddler bed. However, they require a separate rail purchase for safety purposes.

2.3 Do high-end cribs serve better?

The majority of high-end cribs are imported from the European region. They come with excellent glazed or burnished finishes, which is often hand rubbed. You will get to witness some hand-painted details onto these cribs. Curved ended boards and model handcrafted from wrought irons are some of the other features of high-end cribs. They usually have oval and round-shape. However, round-shaped cribs are still rare as they are not established under the full-sized crib regulations. It will also be a bit tiresome to find sheets that would be 100% fit for round shaped cribs. There are regulations set up for play yards and full-sized cribs, which apply to the round-shaped cribs to a certain extent. Moreover, high-end cribs only use heavy gauge springs and metal supporters for their mattresses. If these cribs will serve your purpose or not will entirely depend upon your needs and expectations from the crib.

It is safe to go for a JPMA certified play yard. Reading the manual thoroughly will allow you to set up the play yard easily. Portable cribs play yards are smaller in size but have the same level of compactness. They are not as spacious and big as full-sized cribs for apparent reasons. Few portable cribs are also JPMA certified. If you have a small-sized place, you can go for a portable crib as it will serve your purpose well. You can always buy crib sheets and mattresses accordingly.

4. How-To: Usage hints and care instructions for the baby cribs

4.1 What are the safety tips for using cribs?

  • Never use an antique or used crib or bassinet: The problem with old and used cribs is that they may have damaged parts. Some accessories or finials attached to the crib can collide. There can be cut out sections alongside the rails, which stand a chance of trapping the baby’s head, legs, arm or any other body part. Old paint also might be harmful if it comes in contact with the baby’s skin.

  • Check slat spacing: A standard practice established for the slats' positioning is to maintain at least 2 ⅜ inches distance between adjacent slats. It is essential to determine if the crib satisfied all the requirements and standards as this directly reflects on the child’s safety.

  • Check the condition of the crib's paint: If it is a coloured crib, you should look into it that there is no peeling or chipping on the painted surface.

  • Check the crib for splinters: Minutely check the crib for sharp edges, nail heads popping out, cutouts or fragments.

  • Remove decorations: If there are any accessories or decorative items such as arrows, bows and ribbons on the bassinet, it is good to remove that as the child may put that into his or her mouth or end getting curled up into it.

  • Check corner posts: Corner posts of a crib are essential parts to pay attention to as they have final knobs which can harm the baby. There are chances of the baby’s clothing material getting hooked and stuck on this knob. To avoid this, you have to make sure that the finial knobs are at least 16 inches higher than the crib's side.

  • Bare is best: Always make sure the crib is spacious, cosy and comfortable. Avoid keeping any excess pillows, blankets, toys or clothes inside the crib. It is essential for the baby to feel at ease and not feel congested. Also, keep the clothes on your baby minimal. Dress him or her according to the season and your baby’s acceptance of it is a must.

  • Check hardware: Make it a regular practice to double-check the nuts, bolts and screws of the crib. If Anything is loose; tighten it at the highest priority. In case of any broken parts, get them replaced or repaired by the manufacturers.

  • Check mattress supports: Make it a routine habit to check the mattresses' supporter for any slip-offs or discrepancies. If anything, fix it immediately. Whenever you are changing the crib sheets or cleaning them, you can instantly look at the supporters and make sure they are working correctly and are in place.

  • Use the proper fitted sheet: Ensure the sheets you are using are a correct fit considering the size of the mattress used in your crib. If they are more significant than required, it might lead to extra folds and loose corners which the baby might get entrapped in and harm himself or herself.
