Another important feature is the use of wheels. The castors must not be flimsy because you will be moving the crib under the vacuum.

While buying a crib, consider the fact that mattress should be firm and tight-fitting, there should be no broken slats, and there should be no design cutouts.

To avoid SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) make the baby sleep with the back on flat, firm mattress with no soft bedding underneath. Never put the child near the window blinds or drapery. Never use a string in the crib. Lock the side rails in its raised position when the baby is in the cribs and prevent strangulation. Prevent the use of cribs when the child is more than 35 inches of height. Tighten all the nuts, bolts, and screws often. Check the crib hooks to ensure that none are broken or bent. Secure bumper pads around the entire crib.
