The crib is the focal point of the nursery and one of the biggest purchases that parents make for the infant. As one of the bigger purchases, parents often search for ways to save while shopping and this leads many parents to consider choosing a previously owned crib for the infant.
Though it can be a great way to shave a bit off of the baby budget, there are a few reasons that parents should consider buying a new crib for the infant including:
New Cribs Meet the Latest Safety Standards
The safety standards for baby items are always changing. Buying a new crib rather than a used model can ensure that the proper safety standards are going to be met and the infant is going to be safe and secure while in the crib.
New Cribs Have Current Recall Notices
It can be difficult to tell which model of used cribs are being purchased and even more difficult to determine the release dates, which can help to determine if the crib is subject to a recall from the manufacturer. Parents choosing a new crib can have peace of mind knowing that the crib has not been recalled and is safe for the child to sleep in.
New Cribs are Created without Drop Sides
The majority of cribs that are currently available on the market are created without the drop side style of crib. These cribs have been subject to multiple recalls lately, causing the customer to have to stop using the crib and find a replacement. New cribs are being created with standard sized cribs.
New Cribs Don’t have Imperfections that can Affect Performance
New cribs are designed without the imperfections including cracks through the hardware and other elements that can affect the performance of the crib.
New Cribs Come with Detailed Instruction Manuals
New cribs are designed with detailed instruction manuals to ensure the customer is able to assemble the crib and use the hardware correctly throughout the design to ensure the safety of the crib for the infant.
Choosing a new crib is the safest option for parents that are searching for a way to protect the child in one of the places where they spend the majority of their time, the sleeping area.
