Always err on the side of caution when using baby cribs to reduce safety and health risks

The Sorelle Furniture Company manufactures a variety of home furnishings, including dressers, bookcases, armoires and baby cribs. As with all baby cribs, important safety instructions should be followed when using a Sorelle baby crib to protect the baby against potential safety and health risks. Check the crib on a regular basis for possible safety hazards as your child grows and contact your family physician with any questions.

Place the baby on his back to sleep, unless directed otherwise by the baby’s doctor, to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Examine the crib closely for any sharp or loose hardware, sharp edges or points or any damaged parts. Contact Sorelle for replacement parts, and do not use the crib until the damaged, missing or loose part has been corrected.

Avoid covering the mattress with any plastic film or material that might cause suffocation.

Keep any cords, straps, strings or any other long item that could become wound around the child’s neck away from the crib.

Remove any bumper pads, toys or other objects from the crib and lower the mattress to the lowest setting as soon as the child can stand.

Use crib mattresses that are 27 and 1/4 inches by 51 and 5/8 inches, and a thickness no more than 6 inches. Mattresses that are too large or too small may present an entrapment or suffocation hazard.

Move the child to a toddler bed once he reaches 35 inches tall or taller.
