Selecting Safe Metal Cribs for your Baby

There are two types of metal cribs, the one you find in antique stores, and the one you can buy in infant furniture stores. If you prefer metal cribs rather than the wooden one, you always have to make sure that the crib is safe for your beloved baby.

New metal cribs must meet the standards set by the consumer protection agency in your countries. Meanwhile, old or used cribs that you can get from antique stores could be more charming and more attractive. However, old cribs could be dangerous for your baby because they’re not standardized as the new ones.

1. Bar Width
The space between the bars of the crib must be no more than 3/8 inches apart to prevent your baby from getting his head stuck, or their body from sliding between the bars that could lead to strangulation. If you buy an old crib, always measure the spaces between the bars because they might be not similar as old cribs are not standardized as modern manufactured cribs.

2. Paint
Even it’s repainted, old cribs might have old paint that contains lead, which would be very dangerous for your baby. The paint that got covered by a new paint or the paint on the crib corners or hard-to-paint areas might be stil lead-based.

3. Mattress Fit
Old cribs might be not good for a modern mattress. Never use an old mattress that comes with an older crib as the mattress could be too soft. Your beloved baby must sleep on a firm surface to avoid suffocation risk.
In conclusion, metal cribs are not dangerous as long as you keep paying attention to the cribs that you want to buy. Always be a smart buyer.

A Baby Boy Bassinet as an Addition to a Crib

A bassinet cannot replace a crib which is the safest place for a baby to sleep but it can be a cozy addition to a crib. A bassinet can be used from newborn to about 6 months of age depending on the weight of the baby. As it is portable and smaller than cribs, you can move the bassinet to any areas of your home. As a result, your baby won’t get bored staying in his nursery all the time.

There are no significant differences between bassinets for baby boys and baby girls. What makes them different is just the color and fabric pattern. A baby boy bassinet usually comes in blue or neutral colors with boy themes like pirates, footballs, cars, and the like. Most bassinet bedding is neutral gender themed so they are suitable for both girls and boys.
