View Full Version : Need crib mattress height information or recommendations

07-17-2001, 01:13 PM
We just purchased a Pali crib and as I was checking all of the pieces, I realized that the mattress can be positioned at three different heights. Does anyone know if there are weight/height recommendations anywhere? None of my new parenting books cover this topic and most of my friends have non-adjustable cribs. We are adopting internationally and expecting a three to six-month old baby, so I can't assume the top height is the best for our situation. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ida: Typically, there is no specific weight limits for each level. When the baby is a newborn, use the highest setting. Once baby starts sitting up, you can lower it to the middle. When baby actually starts to stand, you go to the lowest setting. Obviously, when a baby hits those milestones depends on the individual child!
