Full-sized cribs have at least two mattress-height positions; some even have three or four. To prevent your baby from falling over the side of the crib, adjust the mattress support to its lowest height as soon as she can sit or pull up, usually between 6 and 8 months of age. Many models don´t require tools for adjusting mattress height, while in some models screws or bolts may be hard to reach. The distance between the mattress support (in its lowest position) and the top of the crib rail should be at least 26 inches. Check before using the crib.
A foam or inflatable bed bumper is simply a large bolster pillow that fits alongside the mattress to create a soft barrier. Small and unobtrusive, they may be just the thing to boost your toddler’s confidence. Install them in seconds — they go under the sheet and, if you ask my opinion, look cosy.
Hang onto their hospital name band and the outfit they wore in their first few days; immediately after the birth it can get a bit busy and hazy, so it’s nice to keep some relics from that time and remember when you first met properly.
