Baby’s First Bed
Cribs are most likely one of the first purchases expectant parents make for the nursery. After all, sleep is very crucial to your baby’s development, so it’s important to choose the right one. Best Buy stocks a variety of cribs so you can find one that fits your preference.
Tip for Choosing the Right Crib
1. Choosing Materials
Most baby cribs are made with solid wood and include four stationary sides. They often come with a finish, so make sure that it's of the non-toxic variety.
2. Choose a JPMA Certified Crib
New parents looking for that extra peace of mind should seek out products with JPMA (Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association) certification. This means the crib has been verified for standards on safety, performance and functionality. For example, cribs with JPMA seal are tested for structural integrity, side rail impact, corner post vertical extensions and more.
3. Consider Convertible Cribs
Convertible cribs grow with your child, giving you the option to transform it into a daybed, toddler bed, and double bed when the time is right. Check the conversion type to see how many bed positions the crib can convert to. A 3-in-1, for example, will convert to a standard crib, daybed, and twin size bed to accommodate your growing child. There also 2-in-1 and 4-in-1 conversion cribs available.
4. Choose a Crib Changer Combo
Some cribs come with a crib changer, usually equipped with a changing pad, drawers, and/or shelves. Crib changers can be detachable, so when you’ve converted the crib into a bed and your child is no longer in diapers, they can be used for storage.
