Giving birth is the most wonderful experience a woman can have because it is the fulfillment of the biological function of the female species. After the birthing process, the real work begins. Bottle feeding, diaper changing, and immunization records are just a few of the things a new mother must learn quickly. And one important thing to consider when the baby arrives is what kind of crib he or she will be using. According to Dr. Mark Brandenburg (http://www.baby-place.com/crib_safety.html), the first rule to follow when choosing the right baby bedding for your precious infant is safety. The second rule says it is safe and the third rule emphasizes safety. The conclusion to be drawn is that it is not enough to say it, but it is important to emphasize that baby bedding is essential for the comfort of your baby.
In his article on how to find the perfect baby bedding, it must be neither too hard nor too soft. In the past, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or SIDS has been blamed on very soft baby bedding. This happened when a baby’s mattress was so soft that his nose and mouth were covered and the air he exhaled was the air he breathed. This is dangerous for him because he will be breathing carbon dioxide instead of oxygen, the effects of which can lead to drowsiness, coma and even death.
There are many styles and makes when it comes to choosing a crib. With this comes the fact that the baby bedding must fit perfectly with the equipment chosen. The three main options are: bassinet, crib or cradle. What is the difference between them? A bassinet is a rectangular basket that serves as a bed for the baby. But sometimes there are round cradles. A bassinet is a bed with high side rails on either side to keep the baby or toddler safe. A crib is usually more economical because an infant can use it from infancy to two years of age. And a bassinet is a small, low bed used by an infant with a rocker on its stand. In all of these devices, the material used to make the device should alert and signal to the mother how many safety precautions are needed.
Cradles are usually lacy and filled with decorations. The crib bedding must fit the bassinet so that the baby has enough room for him or her to be able to roll from one side to the other. The crib is usually square, so the mattress can fit the size of the crib. The baby’s bedding is usually a comforter and small pillow set. A hot dog pillow can also be placed inside. However, there should be no more than two or three pillows so that the baby may not stand on them and fall over. Bassinets can come in all sizes and shapes. Some mothers prefer a bassinet so that when the baby is cranky, they can rock him or her to calm him or her down. The bassinet’s baby bedding should follow its shape. Because it is mainly used to rock the baby to sleep, there are not many things that can be put inside. However, it doesn’t take three things to keep a baby safe, warm and secure. One is enough, depending on the preferences of the parents. The most popular is the crib because it lasts a long time.
Now that we’ve covered the basics, how do we furnish it with baby bedding? We have established that baby bedding should be suitable for sleeping equipment to avoid accidents and other unpleasant events. The most suitable material to use is cotton, because it is absorbent and cool to the baby’s skin. Different designs must be used to stimulate the baby’s recognition of colors and patterns. Thus, baby bedding is a key factor in keeping babies happy and healthy.
