Crib | Infant Bed

A crib, also known as an infant bed, is a small enclosed bed for a baby or small child to sleep in. Since the early 20th century, cribs are often enclosed and elevated from the ground to protect an infant from cold weather. Cribs are commonly rectangular in shape with a small soft mattress placed at the bottom. Typically made of maple, oak or soft pine, many crib designs are rectangular, and have rounded or rectangular spindles on the main face and sides to provide parents or caretakers with a constant view of the infant. Today, there are hundreds of types of cribs for an infant, including convertible, portable and canopy style cribs.

What size is a crib mattress?

The size of a crib mattress in accordance with US standards is 28 by 52 inches (71 by 132 cm). A miniature crib mattress has the dimensions of 24 by 36 inches (61 by 96.5 cm).

How do you transition a baby to a crib?

Transitioning a baby to a crib is a gradual process. It is important to have the best sleeping environment that includes a full-size crib and a secure mattress clear of pillows and blankets. Remember to lay the baby flat on its back to ensure safety. In order for the baby to feel comfortable, it is an option to place the crib in your bedroom initially, starting out with naps in the crib during the day until moving into the baby’s room. The next step is to decrease the time in which you stay while the baby falls asleep. Monitors and sound machines are useful tools in aiding this transition.

When should you lower a crib?

The time to lower a crib comes when the baby is able to sit up. Standing position will soon follow this action, so begin to lower the crib accordingly. It is important to note that one should not adjust to the lowest setting of the crib immediately but over time as the baby continues to grow.
