In the first months of life the kid the most part of the life sleeps. That to him it was well fallen down, it is necessary to provide for him a convenient berth. The crib has to be not only beautiful, but, first of all, safe and convenient for the child and his mom. What options of beds for the child exist?
1. Bed with a lattice. It is, probably, the most frequent choice of parents for a dream of the kid. But not the only possible. It is convenient if the bottom of such bed can be put in different provisions. So far the child still absolutely small, it is possible to lift a mattress above that it was convenient to mom to put the child. When it grows up and will begin to rise on all fours, the mattress needs to be lowered on the bottom of a bed that the child did not drop out through its edge. The mattress has to be accurately by the bed size. There should be no cracks between a lattice and a berth of the kid. The bed has to be strong and steady. On some models the function of the pendulum is provided: you can rock to sleep the child not on hands, and in a bed. But surely check that such bed was not shaken too strongly and could not turn over sideways. If the crib has function of lowering of a sidewall, always well check whether the mechanism was closed. Very frequent history when mom does not fix the rising party of a bed, and the kid falls, leaning on it.
2. Some parents buy soft sides on a bed. It looks beautifully, protects the kid – he cannot push a hand or a leg between rods. But such sides have also a number of minuses. They limit intake of air in a bed. Besides they can constitute danger to the kid: laces which they fasten to bed rods; filler from sides in case of a rupture of a seam – can be dangerous. If such sides are sewed with a bed-sheet, then it is very inconvenient to lay something in a bed, and in case of course you should remove completely all design. So at first estimate as far as sides in a bed are necessary to you. Often they cost expensive, but in practice the parents quickly move away them.
3. Other option of a berth of the kid – a cradle. It will serve much less, than a bed with rods – about half a year. But takes much less place. Often cradles are equipped with the mechanism for a motion sickness and wheels that it was possible to move it with ease about the room. The cost of cradles strongly varies, but it is possible to find very inexpensive. Beds usually are more expensive. Producers quite often build in mobiles with music and toys a cradle design and also the automatic mechanism of a rocking the kid.
4. One more option for the organization of a dream of the kid – a joint dream with parents. This trend is very popular lately. It is sometimes really more convenient to stack the child near itself in a parental bed that allows to nurse him, without rising at night. At the same time you have to have rather large bed that all had enough place: to mom, dad and child. Also you have to prevent a possibility of falling of the kid from edge of a bed. For this purpose the easiest to move a bed to a wall and to put the kid between it and itself. At the same time the bed should not have armrests or other designs because of which between a wall and a berth there will be cracks. As well as any berth of the small child, you should not move a bed close to the battery.
5. Also the intermediate option is possible: you remove one sidewall of a bed with rods and move it closely to the bed; or you can get at once a crib which is possible for fixing on parental. So you will sleep with the child nearby, without barriers between you, but at the same time the kid will not take the place on a parental bed.
