When parents expecting a new child into their family, they will usually think about selecting versatile furniture for their nursery, though they will probably overwhelmed by all the things they will need to buy. Therefore it is a great idea to gift some baby furniture to welcome their new little one. If you choose carefully, it’ll be a great gift that they remember through many years.
Choose pieces of furniture that can be used from infant to toddler years. You could buy products that make decorating sense, however, unless you know the parent’s decision and taste avoid buying key or big items.
Your little baby will call her crib home for many months so the most important choice of nursery furniture is a good baby crib. Babies probably spend more time in their crib than anywhere else, so both comfort and safety is important. The selection will affect your baby for a long time, so it is an important decision that needs to be made carefully.
There are many affordable options online for quality baby cribs but before buying one there are several things to consider:
Slats: A baby crib should have slats that are close enough together to prevent baby’s head from slipping through, or getting stuck, which is very common. The distance between the crib slats must be smaller than 2 3/8” (in).
Stability: Give the crib a good shake at the store or after you put it together at home to test if everything is placed and fixed properly.
Standard frame size: The crib dimensions should allow you to snugly place a standard mattress for cribs.
