The countless hours you will spend feeding and taking care of your newborn are precious moments and you'll appreciate the comforts that you added to your nursery.

Make sure that the craddle or bassinet you'll buy has a sturdy bottom and a wide base for stability, smooth surfaces with no protruding staples or other hardware that may cause injury. The legs should be equipped with effective and strong locks to prevent folding while in use.

The changing table should have safety straps to prevent falls and equipped with drawers or shelves that are easily accessible without leaving the baby unattended.



When you're planning to buy a crib check that no slats are missing or cracked and they are spaced no more than two inches apart. The mattress must fit snugly with less than two fingers width between edge or mattress and crib side. The mattress support must be securely attached to the head and the footboards. Make sure that the crib's drop-side latches cannot be easily released by your baby and all screws which secure components of crib are present and tight. Convertible White Baby Crib
