Your Baby's Crib
The crib mattress should fit snugly in the crib to prevent any gaps your baby can fall into. Plastic sheets, pillows, and large stuffed animals can also be potential suffocation hazards, so keep them out of the crib.
To keep your baby from getting his head stuck, crib bars should not be more than 2 3/8 inches apart. All cribs manufactured after 1974 are required to meet this safety standard.
