About baby bed

What should buyers know about baby beds?

A baby bed is among the most important and exciting items that parents shop for their infant children. A crib bed, also called a cot bed in British English, typically has a dimension of 28 x 52 in (71 x 132 cm); the weight capacity is a maximum of 50 lb (22.6 kg). Stationary baby beds often have frames made out of pine wood, solid wood, or birch wood. When shopping for a baby or toddler mattress, buyers should ensure that there is no gap between the crib frame and the mattress. The rule of thumb is that if a user can put more than two fingers between the frame and the mattress, it means the mattress is too small and is not safe for babies. In addition, buyers can consider waterproof mattresses, or waterproof cover sheets to protect the mattress.

What are the features of bed bassinets?

Another popular type of baby bed is a bed bassinet designed specifically for babies from newborn to 4 months old. A bed bassinet frame is often made out of metal, wood, or plastic, and the size is smaller than a crib bed. Some new mothers prefer putting bassinets in the same room where they sleep. This type of bed has a lighter weight and is more portable. Some bed bassinets have wheels that allow parents, especially exhausted mothers after birth, to move the bed as necessary. Buyers should remember to lock the wheels after moving a bassinet. When buyers notice that their babies can roll over in a bassinet, it is time to invest in a crib bed set.

A co-sleeping bassinet has an additional unique design where the bassinet is directly installed to the side of the parent's bed. The name refers to a mother sleeping right next to her baby for easier access. This type is helpful and more convenient for new mothers who want to sleep next to their babies. When installing, buyers should take caution and make sure to follow the manual instructions carefully.

What are portable cribs?

Portable cribs are somewhat similar to bassinets, but in terms of sizes and materials, portable cribs have more choices. In a portable crib, the materials of the frame and the mattress are usually metal, plastic, and cotton, respectively. Portable cribs are recommended if buyers travel often with their babies. They can be folded, self-standing, highly compact, and often have pockets. A diaper table can also be added to a portable crib.

How to maintain a baby bed and mattress

Baby wipes are generally sufficient to clean the frame of a baby bed. Buyers should take out the mattress and clear all toys before wiping down the frames. The mattress cover sheet should be washed regularly with unscented detergent to prevent mold.
