In addition to the basic material (wood, plastic, or other), also make sure that the bolts, screws, and nails are securely attached. In addition to ensuring that the baby’s cot is sturdy enough, it is also to ensure that there are no sharp materials that stick out and harm the baby. The paint used must also be considered. Consider more than just color. Make sure the baby bed does not use toxic paint. Cots with chipped paint, even lead-free ones, should be avoided or re-polished.

Choose a bed with a gap of less than 6 cm to prevent the baby’s head from snagging and slipping between the posts. The wood in the crib for this one must be free from cracks. All parts of the crib must also be very sturdy with tight joints.

Special baby mattresses are designed to be sturdy or hard to prevent SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), and can support the baby’s spine. Instead of following the firmness level on the mattress label, You can test it yourself at home, before it’s ready for your little one to use. If you press hard, the mattress should stay firm and regain its shape quickly.
