Safety Tips

Your baby's safety is our primary concern. We hope you find the following information helpful as you set up and use our infant and toddler products:

  • Infants should ALWAYS sleep in a crib, which meets current Federal and ASTM standards.
  • The crib mattress should fit snugly with no more than two fingers width, one-inch, between the edge of the mattress and the crib side. Otherwise, the baby can get trapped between the mattress and the side of the crib.
  • No pillow-like bumpers.
  • Look for the JPMA Certification Seal.

For more information, visit the JPMA (Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association) website.

Tips for Crib Use & More

  • Remember to ALWAYS keep the drop side up when the baby is in the crib.
  • NEVER place the crib near windows, draperies, blinds, or wall mounted decorative accessories with long cords.
  • Make sure there are no missing, loose, broken, or improperly installed screws, brackets or other hardware on the crib or the mattress support.
  • Crib slats or spindles should be spaced no more than 2 3/8" apart, and none should be loose or missing.
  • Never use a crib with corner posts over 1/16 of an inch above the end panels (unless they're over 16" high for a canopy). Babies can strangle if their clothes become caught on corner posts. These should be unscrewed or sawed off, and the remaining end panel should be sanded smooth.
  • No cutout areas on the headboard or footboard so baby's head cannot get trapped.
  • ALWAYS use a crib sheet that fits securely on the mattress, wraps around the mattress corners and stays securely on the mattress corners.
  • No cracked or peeling paint.
  • No splinters or rough edges.
  • Use bumper pads only until the child can pull up to a standing position. Then remove them so baby cannot use the pads to climb out of the crib.
  • Mobiles should also be removed when baby can pull himself or herself up.
  • NEVER place infants to sleep on pillows, sofa cushions, adult beds, waterbeds, beanbags, or any other surface not specifically designed for infant sleep.

Decorating Tips

Getting Started
Begin by creating your vision for your nursery and plan the overall look and layout of the room.  Here are three easy steps to help you get started:

1. Choosing your bedding is the perfect place to begin when designing the nursery. NoJo bedding offers a wide variety of collections and can serve as inspiration for the overall design of your room. Click "NoJo" at the left for lots of bright, cheery ideas for your nursery!

2. To determine the overall look and feel of the entire room, look around your home. Because the nursery is an extension of the rest of your home, stick with a style you're most comfortable with and you'll love the result.

3. Last, choose a theme, color, and personal touches that accentuate your uniquely designed nursery.

Be sure to check out our new Decorate Your Nursery page for videos with great design ideas from PROJECT NURSERY along with tips and hints for creating your own dream nursery.

For Babies Under 12 Months

  • Normal, healthy infants should ALWAYS sleep on their backs unless otherwise advised by a pediatrician.
  • Only a fitted sheet, mattress pad, and/or waterproof pad should be used under baby.
  • When baby is put to sleep, remove pillows, quilts, comforters, sheepskins, pillow-like stuffed toys, and other pillow-like products from the crib.
  • Cover baby with a thin covering, such as a crib blanket, receiving blanket or other blankets specifically designed for infants, only reaching as far as baby's chest, and tuck the covering around the crib mattress. For newborns, consider swaddling.
  • Do not overdress your baby. Consider using a sleeper, sleep sack, or other sleep clothing as an alternative to any covering.
