A new baby! One of life’s great moments has arrived. Before you bring your bundle of joy home, though, make sure you have the following to keep them safe, happy, and healthy.
A crib is the place where a newborn will be spending a lot of time, so it is important to pick a good one. Is there one that has been handed down through the family or was acquired second-hand? If so, be careful. Many older cribs may not comply with modern safety standards and may pose a serious threat to a baby. Make sure that the slats along the sides are spaced closely together and the mattress is the proper size to fit the crib snugly.
