Cribs + Beds
When traveling away from home, whether on vacation or for business, it’s important that everyone is able to sleep well. Children are especially sensitive to changes in places and beds. Many hotels only offer either Pack N Plays or Compact Cribs, which are also known as Mini Cribs. Rockabye also offers these sleeping options. However, children over the age of 2 or many tall children are not able to use these beds. It’s important for both safety and comfort that young children sleep in an appropriately sized crib or bed. Full Size Cribs are much like the cribs parents have at home. Standard full size cribs are appropriate for children up to 4-years or 50-lbs.
Full Size Cribs are regulated regarding dimensions. Standard full-size crib mattress is 27¼ inches wide by 52 inches length, and the cribs 30 inches by 54 inches. Standards set by the ASTM and the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Assn. require that the openings between slats be no greater than 2⅜ inches, so that babies’ heads can’t be caught. Rockabye’s cribs are all ASTM & JPMA approved, as well as meet the current CPSC safety standard.
