Even if the risk is small, it seems senseless for something that isn’t necessary – even if they are so darn cute!
There is more to a safe crib than not having a bumper, though. As promised, some more of my favorite eco-friendly (and very safe) cribs that weren’t included in yesterday’s post.
Oeuf – made in Europe from FSC certified wood – non-toxic, water-based finishes, and no-VOC finishes
Q Collection– made in the U.S. from sustainably sourced wood with non-toxic, water based finishes and zero or low-VOC finishes
Stokke - Manuctured in Slovenia from sustainable sources with non-toxic and low or no VOC finishes
Bloom – “all bloom products are independently tested and certified to be lead free, phthalate free, PVC free, heavy metal free, and AZO dye free - products are free of wood PCP and other toxic wood preservatives, fiberboard (MDF) free,use formaldehyde-free adhesive, low voc finishes and originate from certified sustainable beech and birch wood forests”
Spot on Square –“we use low VOC non-toxic paints and MDF made of 100% recycled/reclaimed content and formaldehyde-free glue. Additionally, we use FSC certified birch, Plyboo bamboo and locally sourced walnut”
Structured Green – I think the Oops crib is the best looking crib in the whole bunch! The crib is made from sustainable or reclaimed sources in the U.S. with non-toxic finishes
A Natural Home- The Livvy crib is unique! Made in the U.S. from sustainable with non-toxic finishes
In closing, when thinking about your baby's crib - where they are going to spend sooo much time - think about all the different features of the crib, and just leave that cute bumper at the store!
