Why You Should Make Sure That You Get Non-toxic Cribs for the Nursery

Any parent will tell you that designing their baby’s nursery is one of the most exciting parts of being a parent. After all, there’s so much to choose from: what colors should the curtains be? What color should the walls be? Should you pick gender-neutral colors- or do you design a gender-specific nursery? It all depends on the parents of course! One part of this exciting quest is the selection of a crib. After all, your baby’s crib will be where he or she spends the majority of their time. Therefore, it’s very important that you get non-toxic cribs for your baby. In this article, we’re going to tell you all about those.

First of all, what are non-toxic cribs?

A non-toxic crib, as the name suggests, is a baby’s crib that is not made of any sort of toxic material. Now, we understand that this might seem a bit confusing- if not horrifying for many new parents. How can a baby’s crib be toxic? Well, as it turns out, it all depends on the chemicals either painted on or mixed together into the wood that makes the crib.

A non-toxic crib will not consist of any kind of toxic substances- whether it’s a gas emitted due to a difference in the atmosphere or temperature levels, or even if it’s the wood combined to make your baby’s crib. It will all be a 100% non-toxic. However, when you’re shopping for a non-toxic crib, you need to look at a few things before you make your purchase.

Not all non-toxic cribs are a 100% non-toxic. Some even off gas toxic fumes which can be very unhealthy for your baby. So, here’s how you watch out!

Things to Watch Out for When Purchasing a Non-Toxic Crib

Non-toxic cribs can cost from anywhere between $500 to $2500, and unfortunately, in their case, the pricier product isn’t always the right one. So, what do you do? You need to make sure that the wood and the finish that make up your baby’s non-toxic crib don’t emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). When mixed with the atmosphere, VOCs released from furniture can be quite toxic- especially if they’re in a closed room. They are very bad for humans and can cause respiratory diseases like asthma as well as allergies and kidney damage.

You have to make sure that you buy a non-toxic crib made up of 100% solid wood and the finished with VOC free finish that has no chemicals.

Solid wood furniture sealed with linseed oil constitutes a fundamental step to decreasing chemical content in the home, and thus, diminishing the known health harms associated with exposures to carcinogens, allergens, developmental and reproductive toxins from everyday home furnishings we unknowingly bring into our houses. With this in mind, we do not permit any toxic chemicals in any of our products.
