Caring for Babies - Is Your Baby's Crib Safe?

Corner posts should be the same height as the end panels, and NOT extend above the end panels. Cribs with cutout designs in end panels must not be used, as a child can strangle by becoming entrapped in cutout. The mattress must fit snugly so that two adult fingers cannot fit between the mattress and the crib side. When a child first climbs out of the crib or is 32"-35" tall, he or she has outgrown the crib and should sleep in a bed.
