There are plenty of other things you can include in a keepsake box that will be fun to look back on in years to come. Many include a copy of the newspaper from the day a baby was born, so they can read about the world they were born into. Others include a copy of the top 40 singles chart, so they can laugh at the cheesy music.
The best foam mattresses are firm, on the heavy side, and resilient. Press on the mattress in the centre and at the edges. It should snap back readily and should not conform to the shape of your hand. You don´t want your baby resting on something that will mould to the shape of her head. To assess foam density (the denser, the better), compare the weight of different models. That`s not always easy to do in a store, but you`ll probably find the information online. To give a mattress a density test, pick it up, place a hand on each side in the centre, and then press your palms together. A dense mattress won't allow you to press very far.
Choosing a crib mattress might seem like a boring task but it‵s one that warrants careful consideration. The mattress is as important as the crib, and we recommend buying the best one you can. Why does it matter? For one thing, your baby will spend a lot of time in his crib. It might seem hard to believe, especially when you´re getting up to feed a fussy baby in the middle of the night, but infants sleep up to 18 hours a day.
Choosing a wood frame also depends on the rest of the decor in the room and your home. Wood frames vary from simple designs to ones with ornate and intricate detailing. So be sure to match your frame accordingly, whether that’s to your traditional, country, rustic or chic style.
