When should I buy a crib?
Well, you can never tell the exact date
a baby will arrive.
It might be exactly,
or near, the due date.
But in the unlikely
(but possible) occurence that baby arrives
prematurely, it is a good idea to purchase
the crib at least about 6 weeks earlier than
the due date.
But what about the crib mattress?
Well,there are two kinds of crib mattresses availble today.
One is made of polyurethane foam,
the other type is an innerspring mattress.
So which is best? Well, they are both good.
But whichever one you choose, the higher
quality of either mattress is the main thing.
In other words go for high quality in whichever
mattress you choose.
Beast Feeding at Night
During the first few weeks, breast feeding
in the middle of the night can be tricky.
One way to handle this is to have a crib
where you can remove one side, and place the
crib right next to the side of the bed where
Then she can just reach out and
bring baby into the bed and breast feed without
waking herself, her husband or baby up too much,
so that all can go back to sleep quickly. this
can avoid stress from lack of sleep, which is
common with a new baby.
