Place your baby's crib far away from windows and anything that could fall in the crib.
The finished crib should be completely sturdy and fully assembled.
The slats should be no more than 2-3⁄8 inches apart
Place your baby on his/her back on a firm, tight-fitting mattress in a crib meeting current safety standards.
Any item placed in the crib increases the risk of suffocation — make sure that you do not cover your baby's face with any item (i.e. blanket, comforter, etc.).
The CPSC states "Bare is Best" with regards to anything placed in the crib.
Do not place baby on a waterbed, sofa, soft mattress, pillow, or other soft surface.
Be sure the mattress fits the crib perfectly against all four sides. The firmer the mattress, the safer.
Do not use hand-me-down or secondhand cribs in which the mattress may be different from the one designed to fit the crib.
We do not recommend the use of comforters during sleep time for babies who are younger than 12 months. For younger babies, they can be used as a tummy time mat, etc.
Only use crib sheets that fit snugly and securely on the crib mattress.
Make sure crib sheets fit snugly on a crib mattress and overlap the mattress so it cannot be dislodged by pulling on the corner of the sheet.
Never use an adult sheet on a crib mattress; it can come loose and present an entanglement hazard to young children.
Our crib sheets have deep pockets and reinforced stitching so they should last throughout multiple washings and rigorous use.
Natural For My Baby crib sheets have elastic all the way around in order to ensure as snug a fit to the crib mattress as possible.
Crib Rail Covers
Fasten the rail cover to the crib rail securely using the attached ties.
Crib rail covers are designed to give extra padding and protection to the top of the crib rails, but are not intended as a safety device.
