Is Your Baby's Crib Safe?

A safe crib has:
  • A firm, tight-fitting mattress. 
  • No loose, missing or broken hardware or slats. 
  • No more than 2 3/8" between the slats (width of a soda can). 
  • No corner posts over 1/16" high. 
  • No cutout designs in the headboard or footboard. 

If you are unsure of the safety of your crib, call the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission at 1-800-638-2772 or go their Crib Information Center Website.
