Buying and Choosing baby furniture is one of many fun and exciting task for a parent. For first time parents usually they prefer to buy all the new stuff but, for those who had the experience of being parents would either use the hand me down or old stuff and buy only those essentials.
What are essential baby furniture do we need?
A crib, mini crib and/or co-sleeper
A nursing or rocking chair
A changing table and/or dresser
A high chair
Take into consideration the following:
Side bars be sure the baby will not slip out or get stuck,
Corner posts be careful it would not catch your child’s clothing
Bare is best avoid clutter inside the crib with stuff toys, pillows and other unnecessary stuff. All you need is a waterproof pad and fitted sheet.
Dust bunnies are small ball of dust that form under furniture and in corners that are not cleaned regularly. Cleaning the crib often will avoid dust bunnies.
Cords and strings Keep the crib away from windows, curtains, cords and anything else your little one can pull. Hanging baby mobiles are fine as long as they’re kept out of reach.
Mattresses the cribs mattress should be a close-fitting, reaching every corner of the crib’s frame. If more than two fingers fit between the crib and the side of the mattress, the mattress is too small.
Inheritance If your crib is a hand-me-down, be sure to check for stable hinges, as well as sharp or protruding pieces. If it’s made of wood, be sure the finish is smooth and splinter free.<
