DaVinci Emily Crib
Uncompromising safety and security would be of prime importance to every expectant couple and what better way to let your newborn take the first step than with a DaVinci Emily Crib, belonging to the DaVinci Nursery Furniture Collection. DaVinci Emily Cribs are not just ordinary baby cribs; these convertible cribs for babies can be flexibly used to assist child growth through their entire childhood
Factors to consider when choosing a crib
Parents-to-be will have to decide how they plan to welcome the newest member of the family into this world. For many reasons, parents have a tendency to borrow old cribs from friends or relatives which is not an advisable practice for a lot of safety reasons. Instead of borrowing a new crib, buying a new one that meets the latest safety standards would be the right decision to make
There are a lot of factors that decide what kind of crib would be apt for the baby; the size, the design, the color, the price and the short/long term purpose of the crib. But the most important factor would be crib safety, as nothing else is of supreme importance than your child’s safety. Be sure to use the Federal Safety Standards Guidelines as a benchmark in assessing the safety and quality in construction of baby cribs
Some of the most popular baby cribs are available in the following shapes:
1. Standard Crib
This is the traditional crib that comes in a rectangular shape, with no added features. It can be the cheapest crib available and this basic model will be most suited to those who decide to opt for this model with no strings attached
2. Round Crib
Round cribs are a much sought-after crib model these days. The special feature of the round crib is that they can fit into any odd-shaped room and even adorn an unplanned nursery (with no specific floor plan) with much grace. They are far more expensive than the standard crib.
3. Canopy Crib
Canopy cribs are available either in the traditional rectangular format or in the shape of a round crib, but with an added canopy. These cribs tend to incur extra costs as any bedding purchased for the canopy crib must include a canopy as well. Hence, they are much more expensive than standard cribs. These luxurious cribs are meant for those who wish to create a lavish crib for their newborn and do not mind incurring the extra charges
4. Convertible Crib
Convertible cribs are those that start off as baby cribs for newborns but as the child advances, so does the crib. With a few extra fittings, the convertible cribs can be extended for the child’s use right up to their junior age. These cribs, too, are more expensive than standard cribs. However, a little investment goes a long way in this case as the crib can be converted over the years as the child grows up. This is the most popular crib format emerging these days.
5. Portable Crib
A portable crib is a third smaller than a standard crib. Though it can be easily folded and transported, as the name portable suggests, this crib cannot be used for long as children as infants tend to outgrow them easily. Furthermore, it is difficult to obtain suitable bedding for a portable crib. This type of crib is most suitable for those who have a very small nursery plan
Safety of the crib
Irrespective of the crib model used, safety of the crib is of primary importance. Make sure that:
- Crib slats are not more than 2 and 3/8 inches apart
- The crib does not incorporate a drop side mechanism
- The Crib mattress should be a snuggle-fit allowing a width of not more than 2 fingers between the mattress and the crib side
- The crib should not have any rough corners or edges and no splinters
- Cribs should have no loose or peeling paint
