Are crib crowns a hazard to the baby?

@hotpinkbride:  I’m not a parent, just using common sense here. I don’t see how they could be dangerous for a brand new baby, but once the child gets old enough to pull his or herself into standing position, I could see that stuff getting ripped down real fast.

Maybe you could keep one up until your child hits this age, then take it down. Just make sure you choose a design that would look good both with and without one.

@hotpinkbride:  I don’t really see this as a hazard to an infant. However, I do see this as something really fun to pull down the second they learn to stand and grab!

@hotpinkbride:  Hm…It seems okay for a very young baby who can’t stand, but once the baby can pull up/stand, the baby could pull the fabric into the crib, and that’s definitely a hazard.

I have a 15 month-old, and that would be Bad News Bears in our house right now.

Definitely a strangulation hazard once they can reach the fabric.

You could use the crib crown but paint an outline of the draping on the wall instead of using the fabric.

@hotpinkbride:  Early on this is fine but my DD would totally pull this down and probably try to swing around like tarzan. 😉 She’s 10 months.

What if you had the fabric come out farther and only down to about where the crib is so it’s not accessible from the floor/standing in the crib? I would think you could get the look without it being a mess waiting to happen.

Honestly I wouldn’t it is not practical and yes can be a hazzard. Why waste your money on something that in the end you will need to take down in 9 months or so?

@hotpinkbride:  my advice is to decorate with the bsby in mind. Bright colors, simple designs. My 8w old looks at everything on the walls!
