When should a baby be in a cradle?

A baby should generally be in a cradle when they are sleeping or resting. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends placing babies on their backs in a crib or cradle for all sleep. The crib or cradle should be placed in the parents bedroom for at least the first six months of the babys life.

Cradles and cribs are designed keeping the age of the baby in mind. Follow this rule of thumb when shopping for your baby: Till 6-8 Months: It is generally safe for babies to use cradles till the age of 6-8 months.

Baby cradles are generally safe for babies. When using a cradle, it is important to ensure that it meets current safety standards and is in good condition. Additionally, the mattress should fit snugly in the cradle, and all toys and blankets should be kept out of the baby’s reach. Parents should also regularly check the cradle for any signs of wear and tear, and make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions when assembling the cradle.
