When to set up crib for baby
It’s best to set up the crib for your baby a few weeks before your due date. 
This will give you enough time to ensure that everything is set up correctly and that the crib is safe for your baby.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when setting up your baby’s crib:

  1. Read the instructions carefully: Before you begin assembling the crib, read the instructions carefully and make sure you have all the necessary tools.

  2. Choose a safe location: Choose a safe location for the crib that is away from windows, curtains, blinds, and cords. Make sure that the crib is not near any hazards, such as heaters or electrical outlets.

  3. Adjust the mattress height: Adjust the mattress height to the highest setting for newborns. As your baby grows and becomes more mobile, you can lower the mattress to prevent them from climbing out.

  4. Use a firm mattress: Use a firm, flat mattress that fits the crib snugly. Avoid using soft bedding, such as pillows, blankets, and bumper pads, as they can pose a suffocation risk.

  5. Check for safety standards: Make sure that the crib meets current safety standards and has not been recalled. You can check with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for any safety recalls or alerts related to your crib model.
