While waiting for the baby, many new tasks appear before future parents, the main ones of which the preparation of things and furniture for the child. Many parents pay little attention to buying a crib, and in vain, because in it he will spend most of the time of the first year of life. The crib for the child should be not only beautiful, but also safe, practical, comfortable. How not to get confused in a variety of models? We will help you choose the most suitable option.
Let’s look at the main criteria for choosing a crib.
The material from which the bed is made. The best option if the frame is made of solid wood, such as maple, beech, alder or birch, but the price of such a bed is noticeably “bites”. A pine is more common in our market, it is not expensive, light, but soft, therefore, even when the toy is hit, it leaves a characteristic dent. If you liked the crib of plastic or metal, carefully read the certificate of conformity and hygienic passport.
The coating of such furniture should be as strong and not toxic as possible. In the store carefully inspect the coating, try to scratch, but don’t get carried away much. The surface should be smooth and even.
Adjusting the front wall will make it possible to change it more conveniently or swaddle the child in the crib, the main thing is that the child cannot lower it on his own.
The bottom of the crib is executed in two versions: continuous or consisting of racks. The second option will be preferable, as it is adjustable and more practical. A solid bed made of chipboard can distinguish formaldehyde, it is better to give your preference to MDF.
Any addition to a sleeping place in the form of a chest of drawers, a changing table and a linen box will be a good help, but this significantly increases the cost of the bed.
Using the above tips, let’s try to choose a crib itself. And so, the cribs can be divided into four types:
Classic crib. The most common look, designed for children under three years. Can stand on legs, wheels or on the runners. In our market, they are presented in a large choice with a variety of functions. Most species have a built -in box that can be used for baby linen or toys. Therefore, you can not buy an extra cabinet or chest of drawers. The beds of domestic production have a single standard (the size of the bed is 120 by 60 cm.), any standards are absent for imported. Classic trousers have several positions of the bed, which means that you yourself can adjust the height of the bottom of the crib yourself. There are models with removable side walls, which makes it even more convenient. When your baby grows up, he will be able to climb into the crib himself.
Coting-covers is designed exclusively for children of the smallest age. When your baby learns to turn on his tummy on his own and crawl, the cradle becomes dangerous in use, since the height of the sides of such cot is very small, it can easily fall out of the bed. But there are pluses of cradle have removable coatings that can be washed in a typewriter, which will help maintain cleanliness and save your time.
Cribs – transformers The most functional of the four types of cribs. Buying this type of crib, you provide your baby for 6-7 years with an excellent vacation spot. This is a regular crib combined with a children’s dresser with shelves or a changing table. We also note that in some models, as a child grows, it may be a sleeping place.
The cribs are the arena. They are laid out and folded in one movement of the hand, which makes an indispensable purchase when crossing or traveling with your child. A folded bed becomes a road bag in an unfolded state, it is a playground for games and a berth that will provide your baby with a great dream. Cotees – arena are represented in various models that are equipped with wheels or have a swing function.
And most importantly, the crib belongs to the category of goods where it does not mean expensive, so you should not be guided only by appearance and price.
