Crib safety

Health Canada has extensive information about crib safety and tips for purchasing a crib for your infant. It is important remembers these tips:

  • Look for a label so you know when the crib was made
  • Health Canada does not recommend using cribs older than 10 years because they are more likely to have broken, worn, loose or missing parts, and to be missing warnings or instructions.
  • If you can’t find a label, do not use the crib
