Parents should get a better night’s sleep knowing their baby’s crib is safe.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued these crib safety suggestions:

  • Make sure crib slats are no more than 2 3/8 inches apart, and that there are no cutouts or bedposts higher than 1/16 inch.
  • Avoid any type of crib toy.
  • If you use a mobile, make sure the baby can’t reach it, even when sitting up.
  • Place the crib away from windows, wall decorations, dressers and tables.
  • Make sure crib mattresses and sheets fit snugly. Railings should be bite-resistant for teething babies.
  • Choose a crib with an adjustable mattress so you can lower it as the baby starts crawling and pulling up.
