- Do not use any type of crib toy
- Locate the crib away from dressers, tables, wall decorations, and windows
- Check the crib slats to make sure they are no more than 2 3/8 inches apart, as well as no bedposts or cutouts higher than 1/16 inch
- When using a mobile above the crib, ensure the baby cannot reach it, even when sitting upright
- Select a crib with an adjustable mattress so that it may be lowered when the baby starts pulling up and crawling
- Check crib mattresses and sheets to see if they fit snugly
- Check product documentation to ensure railings are bite-resistant for teething babies
In addition to these tips, regularly check for product recalls for any cribs or crib-related items to make sure they are safe for you to use.
