Your baby's crib is where she'll be spending a lot of her time for the first few months. When purchasing her crib, make sure it has a safety certification seal of approval. It's important that it's placed in the right spot and that you follow other crib safety guidelines, such as not placing the crib directly over a heating and air vent. It's also best not to put the crib right beside a window. They can be drafty, and a freak window-breaking accident could occur because of things like bad weather. Finally, remove all those cute stuffed animals when it's time to put your baby to sleep to avoid the risk of a smothering accident.
