Crib guardrail is the most likely safety hazard. When parents choose, it's best to bring your own gauge and measure these key numbers: fence gap, fence height. The guardrail gap is too large to hold the baby's head too small or to clip hands and feet as well as to affect sight; the standard fence spacing should be 8cm or so. Guardrail height should not be less than 50 cm, lest the baby a little older after turning out of bed. Note that the height of the balustrade here refers to the distance from the bed board (with the mattress surface) to the crossbar.

Four corners of the railing protrude, easy to hook baby's clothes, or hit bruises. Nowadays, most cribs can be removed from one side of the guardrail, but be careful not to choose the pull-down sidebar. If the press is not tight, the baby will be clamped.

Category III: special design pitfalls

Cannot lock two or more casters at the same time do not buy crib!

The four feet of today's crib are basically equipped with sliding wheels for easy movement. However, it is important to note that the pulley should be fixed without moving the crib, so that the bed does not move casually. If the crib cannot lock two or more casters at the same time, the older baby will move on its own, driving the bed to move, prone to danger.

Category IV: bedding hazards

1. Do not buy mattresses and bedstead links that are not tight!

2. Bed and bed between the existence of 5-12mm dangerous seam do not buy!

And the size of the mattress and the small mattress tightly combined to prevent the baby probe out of the clip. Also do not leave 5-12mm between the bed and bed between the seam, easy to clip to the baby's fingers and toes.
