Your Newborn Is Safe Asleep In A Hospital Baby Crib

Apr 27, 2008
All About Hospital Cribs

After the doctors and nurses check you over, you might get a trip to your mother's arms after you are born, but your next stop is a hospital crib. Hospital cribs help to shelter and protect these precious packages until finally they are ready to go home and into the world. Whether you want to buy a hospital infant crib for your personal use or you are ordering them for the hospital where you work, there are several things to keep in mind as you look over the many choices you have in catalogs and on websites.

Safety Matters More Than Ever

The plastic construction of a hospital baby crib helps keep baby safe and sound. The sturdy plastic is difficult to crack or to weaken, making it the ideal way to surround the newly born child. In addition, these hospital cribs can help to shield the baby from outside water or other unwanted fluids. The baby is only able to lay on their back when placed into the crib, helping them to maintain the proper sleeping position so as not to suffocate. Studies have shown that babies who lie on their stomachs are more likely to die of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), so anything you can do to prevent this from occurring is going to be of help to the child. And since they will be in this crib for a while, they will learn the proper way to sleep once they arrive home.

Easy to Move and Transport

When the hospital baby crib is attached to a bassinet, this becomes the ideal habitat for moving the child around. Not only will the baby be at a higher level where they can be examined and looked upon by doctors and friends, the baby will also be able to get to its parents' room without having to be touched or picked up. In addition, the hospital infant cribs are detachable from the bassinets, so the baby can be quickly moved to another area should they need emergency medical care or they simply need to be put on another vehicle for transport.

Ease of Cleaning

The materials that make up the hospital are not permeable, so there's less risk of germs getting onto the surface and staying there. The surface can be easily cleaned with a medical grade cleanser and then maintains with a quick wipe down each day or week. The flat surface is simple for anyone to clean too, and no germs will be left behind in nooks or crannies, as there are none.

Even if you simply use the hospital baby crib in the hospital setting, it certainly has its advantages over the alternative methods of transport - from one person to the next. The hospital infant cribs offer a risk free setting for baby to move through their world. Since the most dangerous time for baby is between the crib and the person who will be holding it, limiting this up and down movement works to the advantage of everyone. Of course, the baby can't stay there forever, but in its most fragile times, it's the best option.
