Having A Wooden Crib For Your Baby Nursery
A wooden crib is common and traditional, providing a durable and sturdy surface for your baby. Wood is a natural substance and if you have a wooden crib made from a sustainable wood source then it is much more environmentally friendly than a metal crib. It is also possible to get an organic wooden crib which has no contaminants or chemical preservatives. For many parents it is really important to control what their baby comes into contact with so this is a fantastic potential benefit of a wooden crib. A wooden crib is generally cheaper than a metal one of a similar style. Of course you still can get an expensive crib but in general they are cheaper. Also, they look and feel warmer than metal. If your baby touches a metal crib it will feel cold to the touch but a wooden crib feels much warmer.
You know what young children are like – they don’t always want to sleep and they bang things on the side of the crib to get your attention. Well, a wooden crib will be that little bit quieter as it absorbs more sound. On a more serious note, wood is also much softer than metal and so a banged head probably won’t hurt quite as much on a wood crib either.
