When it comes to choosing a bed for the little one to come, parents-to-be ask themselves many questions. Bed base, mattress, cushions… Where to go and how to be sure that these products do not pose a danger to the newborn and that they do not contain harmful substances? I give you the keys to properly choose your wooden crib.
Wooden baby bed: How to choose it?
Your new furniture has been giving off a pungent and unpleasant odor for several days, even weeks?
It is formaldehyde, a volatile organic compound classified as carcinogenic. The latter is strongly irritating to the throat, eyes and nose. Formaldehyde is notably present in high concentrations in the glue and varnishes used in the manufacture of particle board. This substance, in addition to harming comfort, is also formidable and weakens already sensitive organisms in young children. Therefore, if a baby is prone to asthma, formaldehyde can be very dangerous for him. To preserve your child and not harm his health, limit contact with this component as much as possible.
In order to avoid harmful substances, the ideal would be to turn to quality furniture in solid wood. However, this is not the only solution: you can find cots made of non-toxic wood on the market, and all the furniture necessary for the composition of the room. As consumers and producers are increasingly aware of environmental issues in order to participate in building a better world, many products in line with this approach are available on the market. Thus, many pieces of furniture made with materials that limit interior pollution will perfectly meet your needs. Made from ecological wooden panels, they contain tiny doses of formaldehyde, comparable to those present in natural wood and therefore harmless for babies.
In order to choose the right wooden baby bed, prefer natural raw materials, but also pay attention to the coverings. Indeed, the paint covering the furniture can also be toxic for your little one, especially since like many children, he will like to put his mouth on the edges of his bed. The solution? A water-based paint finish, which offers all the guarantees of safety for your child.
