"Cribs, usually used cribs, are the leading cause of death to infants out of all the nursery products," says Nychelle Fleming, a spokesperson for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). "We see on average about 32 deaths annually."

The Right Baby Gear for Baby's Safety"If you're buying a new crib in the U.S., you can feel pretty good that it's a safe crib," says Leah Severson, author of Bargain Buys for Baby's First Year (Griffin, 2000) and mother of two. "The government has certain safety standards that all cribs must meet."

The Dakota Crib by Graco is the first Graco crib to be eco-friendly. It is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). All wooden components are sustainable woods from responsibly managed forests and are certified to the standards of the FSC by the Rainforest Alliance SmartWood Program. All finishes are water-based and packaging is from recycled or recyclable materials. The crib also features no moving parts and has a three-position mattress platform that adjusts easily as Baby grows, converting easily to a toddler and day bed. The crib is JPMA, ASTM and CPSC safety certified.
