Crib design parameters It is necessary to consider first of all, since:

- 120×60 cm – standard Russian size furniture for children from birth to 3 years;
- 125×65 cm – European size for children from month to 3 years;

- 140×70 cm – enlarged domestic parameters, most often they can be seen in transformers;
- 97×55 cm – conventional cradle settings used for kids up to 1 year.
Selecting the design in height, it is necessary to take into account that most of the models are calculated 100 cm. Spacious bed, where any baby will be cozy, – the best option. Many models have the ability to install the bottom on 2 levels. For the baby and mom better so that the bed is not too deep to make it easier to gently put a baby in the cradle and not wake it up. When the baby starts to grow and learn to rise, the depth of the product will already be extremely important. The distance from the top of the railing to the children’s mattress should be at least 66 cm. A number of products have a top plank can be removed, the bed at the same time becomes 10 cm below.
For what criteria choose?
Choose the right option The following recommendations will help.
- In the acquired crib, there should be no protruding parts or sharp corners so that the baby accidentally was accidentally injured.
- Should be clarified by the seller, what kind of paints covered the crib. It is best that in areas that the baby begins to nibble in the period of teething, there were special safe lining.
- The bottom and the sides of the product are better to select not solid to ensure good ventilation of air both in the cradle and the mattress.
- Ponds on the walls of the product must be rare, so that the pen or legs of the child could accidentally get stuck between them.
- For a child 2, 3 years old are picking cradlers with protective sides that will remove the baby from falling.
- When selecting the model, it is necessary to take into account her form: the cradle should not be a narrow bottom, otherwise the baby will be able to flip it over. The lower the center of gravity of the design, the more stable it will.
- For more convenient movement of liners on the room in some models there are wheels. Together with this there is a certain danger of reducing the stability of the product, if the child is too active. In order to prevent dangerous consequences, it is better to purchase clamps for wheels.
- Details of the cradle should be highly polished so that the child does not have a handle. All angles should be rounded.
- In the crib should not be easily unscrewed parts and easily removable items so that the child can not be injured or even swallowing them.
- After purchasing the bed, you must neatly wipe the wet wipes and leave to ventilate until the smell is completely disappeared if it is.

Products with polleys by parameters a little more cradle and therefore, it is clearly suitable for kids under the age of 3 years. Constructions with various types of pendulums are also suitable for kids up to 3 years. Transformer beds will serve a child up to 10 years and even more.

- Box for various things. This element, according to many mothers, is very useful when leaving a small child. Thanks to his hand, mom will always have different toys, diapers, bedding, clean diapers, sliders and other important things. This element in some models can replace the bedside table.
- Some models are complemented by built-in either mobile cabins, on top of which plays. These are very comfortable designs, however, we should not forget that there will be much more space for them than for traditional beds.
- An important element is the corners for protection and special overlays on the edges: They will protect the design itself from accidental damage, and the baby – from the swallowing of the particles of the material when his teeth will cut.
- Sometimes cribs have removable parts. Side elements can always be removed, so that the handsucking child could lie in bed and get out of it. Or you can remove one wall and move the baby bed close to the parents bed. The more diverse package will have a model, the more expensive it will cost.
