Your children deserve a crib that is both cute and healthy. While we can't promise they won't learn how to climb out of these ones, we can promise that they aren't covered in chemicals or releasing large amounts of potentially dangerous gasses into your baby's room while they nap. All of our picks are GREENGUARD Gold certified, except for our budget solid-wood pick from Ikea. While you are looking for a safe crib, you might also want to peruse our roundup of safe crib mattresses, to double down on the safest of safe sleeping places for your kiddos.
At Because Health, we believe that having safe and non-toxic baby gear shouldn't come at the expense of convenience or great customer reviews. For cribs, we pulled together all of the top rated and recommended ones from Lucie's List, Babylist, Consumer Reports, The Bump, and Wirecutter. Then, we selected cribs that were GREENGUARD Gold certified, which limits the VOCs in the finishes and glues used (read more about what GREENGUARD certification means). While we were at it, we focused on cribs made with solid wood, and ended up including a budget solid wood pick from Ikea. Although the budget pick is not GREENGUARD certified, Ikea has a transparent chemicals policy and we like having an affordable solid wood option. Then, like always, we made sure the products were easily available and had positive consumer reviews before they made it to our final roundup.
