In this article we are going to examine some of the areas you will want to consider when shopping around for a new crib for you baby boy or girl.
How are you planning on decorating your new baby’s room? Do you want everything to be the same color or are you just going for the bare basics? If you want things to be matching it’s going to be a little tricky and you might want to consider buying everything as a set. The reason I’m saying this is that trying to buy different pieces of furniture that are the exact same color is nigh impossible as it seems that furniture makers thrive on making that shape of white just a little bit different! That’s not to say that you can’t get things that are similar and still look good together, it’s just something that you’ll want to bear in mind when shopping around.
Also how much are you willing to spend? This might be something that you have considered but if not you might want to give it some thought as it will help to narrow down your search. There are cribs that are priced in the hundreds and cribs that are priced in the thousands. And there are lots and lots of each! So deciding how much you want to spend will at least help you rule out some cribs.
Another topic that I will delve into briefly is that of safety. This is most likely one of your prime concerns and you might not know what to look out for. One thing you’ll want to be careful of is that the crib is not built very flimsy or wobbly as it could end up collapsing! One way to ensure this is don’t leave out any seemingly unimportant part or screws in the assembly as they are all there for a reason!
