A crib that will last for several years where the baby can rest and sleep through the night and even day time naps. Sound sleep brings about a happy baby. Parents are even able to rest better themselves when their little one is sleeping well in his crib and in the day have time to themselves while the baby sleeps. Otherwise, when you are unable to rest it brings exhaustion and it is hard to do your daily work around your home.
There are many things that change with a baby coming home for the first time. Things that you have to get used to. n Things you perhaps need to change to make life easier for you.
Having a safe baby crib is very important. Also, it needs a well-designed mattress. One that is not too soft because of suffocation and one that is too hard and uncomfortable. To buy a mattress with the right firmness press on the center of the mattress and the edges and when you release it should snap back quickly and not have your hand print shape on the mattress. The crib should not have slats where the baby could get their head and the crib should be void all toxic paint.
A great way to help yourself is to have a routine for the baby to eat and to sleep After the baby is fed, and they get sleepy so make the routine of eating pretty much the same time each day and you will soon have a sleeping baby. You then can relax, do your work around the house or rest yourself. This sometimes can take several weeks to get both yourself and the baby to become adjusted to.
There are many types of cribs to choose fro which are relatively inexpensive but watch what is on the mattress and what it is made of.There are some mattresses that have polyurethan foam. These polyurethane foam mattresses are very flammable. The have a lot of flame retardant chemical ingredients to meet flammable regulations. You surely do not want your baby sleeping on that.
