Baby cradles are basically tiny cribs on a rocker. They are made of wood or iron making them heavier than baby bassinets and moses baskets, and therefore less portable. They are often passed on as heirlooms and are a wonderful traditional baby furniture item.
Baby moses baskets are exactly what they imply - a small woven basket usually lined with pretty fabric. Most have handles for carrying from place to place and some have the added benefit of a hood. Moses baskets are small enough to be placed in your baby crib to help in the transition from a small bed to the real thing - a big deal for your baby!
The bedside crib is a cosleeper that attaches to the side of an adult bed. It allows your baby to remain close to you at night without actually being in your bed. Baby has the benefits of sleeping near you, without the risk of you rolling over on him or her.
Baby Crib Safety
This is your first priority. Babies spend 60-70% of their first year in their crib. It's up to you to make sure they sleep safely. It is essential to ensure that the crib furniture you decide on, meets the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standards for crib safety as an absolute minimum.
This report covers recalls of all full-size cribs, crib mattresses and crib bedding. Recalled cribs result in several deaths every year - every time I see a new one I get the chills. Make sure you check your crib out against this crib recall report before you put your baby in it!
Your baby crib will only be as good as the accessories that go with it, the most important of these being the crib mattress. Please do your homework in this area, as the use of unsafe crib mattresses, has been stated as one of the possible causes of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
