An infant bed (also known as a cot in British English and a crib or cradle in American English, or considerably less usually, stock) is a tiny bed designed specifically for infants and young children. Infant beds are a relatively new invention designed to keep a standing youngster contained. Infant beds have a cagelike construction that confines the youngster to the bed. Children can climb out between the ages of one and two and are moved to a toddler bed to avoid a damaging fall when exiting the bed.

In Western nations, infant beds are more widespread, with the majority of parents using them as an alternative to sharing a bed (co-sleeping).

A slatted, high-sided child’s bed was referred to as a “crib.” It comes from the Old English word “cribb,” which meant “manger” (feeding trough, similar to a bassinette’s design) or “stall” (implying corralling the child).

Infant beds evolved from bassinettes only in the nineteenth century, and took on the task of keeping the kid in their bed. Because it was “thought crucial that the child’s bed be raised off the ground,” the emergence of a differentiation between baby beds and bassinettes was obvious. This was owing to an impression of poisonous gases behind the knees and explosive vapours towards the ceiling, with plenty of fresh air in between. When children’s beds were raised off the ground, the sides became a safety element rather than a convenience.

It was realized that after kids learned to stand, they could be able to get out of a low-sided bed. Infant beds were utilized once the kid was 12 months old, according to an expert at the time. One side of the enclosure was frequently hinged to open it, a function that is now provided in modern infant beds with a dropside. The bed could be moved on casters with the hinge side dropped, and they could be brought right up to the caregiver’s bed as needed.

Bed bugs and moths were an issue in 17th century Italy, therefore iron beds were created to combat the problem. This novel use was immediately expanded to include children’s beds; a 1620″1640 rockable iron bassinette (with spear-like corner posts) has been dated. Iron beds’ proponents touted their potential health advantages. During the latter part of the nineteenth century, metal infant cribs became fashionable. Infant beds (and bassinettes) were commonly made of iron and had mesh or chain sides. Iron beds were approved by childcare specialists because they were hygienic (in comparison to wood) and could not “habour vermin,” such as bed bug infestations, lice, and moths. Later manufacturers working with wood continued to use the now-traditional white vitreous enamel; however, this was sometimes lead paint, and youngsters were known for gnawing and sucking the delicious surface.

In Finland, newborns have been sleeping in cardboard boxes with a mattress in the bottom since 1938, which are given to pregnant women as part of a “maternity package” comprising baby essentials.

Since 1973, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has set requirements for infant beds offered as an example of how to improve the safety of infant bed designs. Since then, the number of deaths linked to infant beds in the United States has decreased from over 200 to around 50 per year, with injury rates hovering around 8,000 per year. Many of these injuries are related to the 25 million infant cribs currently in use that were constructed prior to the more improved safety requirements.

Infant beds are made to keep the infant confined to the bed. There are no footholds and the edges are too high for a newborn to climb. The materials used in infant beds must meet technical criteria, as well as the prevention of hand and head entrapment. In Australia and New ZealandEurope, the United States, and other countries, baby bed standards have been established. All design guidelines recognize and solve four major issues.
