New Standards For Cribs Coming Soon

There are new standards in place and they are all to keep your kids safe while they sleep.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission voted on new crib standards.

The new rules would render many cribs in the country as not up to code, regardless of whether the crib style and model was ever considered unsafe, and essentially would ban the manufacture and sale of drop-side cribs.

In addition to eliminating drop-side cribs, the new rules will mandate better mattress support, sturdier hardware and better quality wood for crib construction.

The new rules could go into effect next year.
