It feels like such a right of passage as a woman - and it makes this whole pregnancy thing seem REAL! When it came time to choose the perfect baby crib, I had so many questions. After a lot of research about safety and a lot of scrolling through my Instagram feed at cute possibilities, I settled on a lovely white crib by Incy Interiors. It should be arriving any day now.
I imagine a lot of you will have the same questions I had when I started this process, so I wanted to go to an expert for you! You will notice that Aussies call the piece of furniture 'cots' while Americans call them 'cribs. Incy began when my son was 2 and was ready to move into a big boy bed. I had an image in my mind of a dark brown iron bed. I searched high and low for it. I tried to get one made, I tried to buy old ones off eBay but they had lead paint and I tried to import one but I just kept coming up with barriers.
I harped on and on at anyone who would listen about my quest for this bed. This was the push I needed and from then Incy was born!
I feel so lucky that I get to do what I love everyday with a team of incredible people producing beautiful products for our customers at such a special time in their lives.
The number one thing you should look for when buying a cot is that it meets your country's national safety standards. Once you have safety sorted, the next thing you should worry about is finding a cot that fits with the rest of the style of your home. Cots styles have changed since Incy began almost 7 years ago.
Cots are now more stylish and for more with the rest of the style of the home. It is always advisable to follow SIDs recommendations which state nothing in the cot except a fitted sheet.
What about height for the sides and for the mattress? The distances for heights of sides and mattresses are all specified in your country's safety standards and differ depending on the design of the cot so rather than making yourself an expert of cot design, just ensure you are purchasing a cot that complies with the standards. A simple shake test of the cot should tell you if the cot is stable.
Where in the nursery should the crib be placed? It really is up to the parents where the cot displaced in the room. What do new moms need to know about the crib mattress? New mums need to be aware that it is recommended that a baby sleep on a firm mattress.
Lots of new mums want their babies to be as comfortable as possible and worry that the mattress is too firm but this is what is recommended. Any tips for crib bedding? As mentioned SIDS recommends that only a fitted sheet is used in a cot. If you are tight on space, a space saving cot is of course a great idea. Unfortunately lots of the space saving designs mean the cot is smaller and the child will outgrow their cot before they are ready for their first bed.
Toddler beds are a great idea. They are a good stop gap between the climbing out of the cot stage and first big beds. All Incy cots have an optional conversion kit available.
In some cases, the curtains may also be part of the set. Reviews Real-life moments with Travel Cot Light Tag your photo with babybjorn for a chance to be featured on our site.
Anything else you want to add? The only thing I would add is that all of the above questions are all very serious.
Having a new baby is such a special time in your life, please make sure that your enjoy the experience. Manufacturers like Incy spend countless hours pouring over standards, having sample made and tested to take the stress out of selecting a safe product for your child.
