How to Buy a Cheap Baby Crib

Apr 16, 2008
It's totally your choice how you go about buying your cheap baby crib. When you start shopping around, you will quickly notice that there are several options available for you to consider. The big question that might be on your mind is whether to buy a baby crib that is new or one that is second hand. So many people prefer to buy new because they don't like the idea of using a product that someone else has used. However the thought of buying a used baby crib can be very appealing due to the price. If you are thinking about buying a used crib it's advisable that you understand the pitfalls and why you might feel it's better to buy a new crib from a company like Storkcraft, DaVinci or Angel Line.

The main benefit of buying new is that if something goes wrong you have a guarantee which means the product will either be repaired or replaced. However with a used item this isn't the case. Also, it's not always easy to tell if the crib has been well looked after and it's surprising how people can neglect items such as a crib. There have also been some problems with certain models of crib being recalled because of safety. Graco, Basset and Simplicity are just a few manufacturers of crib that have had to recall some of their products. The problem was that the designs were flawed and there were a number of reports of babies being injured or even dying. The good news is that when these flaws were discovered the companies moved very quickly to have the cribs replaced. Huge publicity campaigns were launched to ensure that people found out about the problems.

The problem with recalls is that not everyone pays attention and doesn't bother to do anything about it, or perhaps they just didn't find out and are clueless to the problems. Because of this, the used crib that you want to buy may have been one of the cribs that should have been recalled but wasn't. When babies are concerned, ensuring that you only buy the best quality and safe products is very important.

So if you've been thinking of going for the cheapest possible crib by buying pre-owned then you might now have second thoughts about this. There are many brands of baby crib that are very affordably priced so you don't have to spend a small fortune. No one said that babies are cheap but that's not to say you have to always buy the most expensive. Always look to see if the crib has a certification with Juvenile Product Manufacturers Association (JPMA) to ensure that you are getting excellent safety standards.
