Cribs provide your child with a safe night's sleep. Modern cribs no longer look like little wooden jail cells, they are sleek and chic, eco-friendly pieces of furniture that add a wow factor to the look of your nursery. Safety is the primary concern, so when purchasing a modern crib, always buy new and look for a JPMA-certified unit that has stationary sides – drop-side cribs are no longer considered safe. Your modern crib should have no dangerous detail work, such as scrolls, and it should be free of hazards like splinters and chipping paint. Look for a model with an adjustable mattress height. Take time to assemble your crib properly and regularly inspect it to be sure that all fasteners are tight.
