Check the Specs

Want to know what to look for when buying a crib? Here is what the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Committee's (CPSP) Crib Speculations have to say.


  1. Safety Standard Labels. Warning labels should placed be on the left inside frame and the inside back panel frame.
  2. Adjustable Mattress Settings. When a mattress is at its highest setting, it has to be at least 15” deep. Once your baby can sit up on their own, your mattress should be lowered to its lowest level of at least 26” or deeper. Your Safety Gate cribs have different standards and those measurements are a minimum of 9” at the highest position with the gate open and a minimum 26” at the lowest position with the gate closed. (Check out “Exclusive Safety Gate Cribs” for more information)
  3. Slat Spacing & Threshold. Making sure slats are close together is vital to prevent suffocation and entrapment. Crib slats or spindles should be a maximum of 2 3/8" apart and a threshold of 80 lbs. of pressure.
  4. Corner Posts. These should not be taller than 1/16 of an inch, this will prevent a baby’s clothing from catching.
  5. Internal Crib Size. Convertible cribs should be at least 51 ¾" long and 27 ¾" wide. You want your mattress to be really snug to prevent fingers and toes from getting trapped.
  6. Drop Side Cribs. Don’t use them, simple; even if you use hardware to make them fixed sides, drop side cribs are still dangerous.
  7. Old Cribs. June 28th, 2011 was an important date for cribs made before this date; these cribs do not conform to the higher safety standards. Some manufacturers included an updated hardware packet to conform to the new safety standards, though not all. Buying/selling cribs that do not meet the June 28th updated CPSC standards are illegal, know before you buy.

Are Crib Bumpers Illegal?

To simply put it, crib bumpers are NOT illegal. There is a lot of hype in the media and knowing before you buy will allow you to be more comfortable.  Bumper pads help complete the look of bedding, reduce the draft to keep baby warm, and prevent entrapment of limbs between crib rails. The main purpose of the pads was to prevent limb entrapment. The spacing between crib rails, back in the day, used to be very wide and the bumper pads helped prevent injuries.
