What materials are your cribs made of?

The majority of Million Dollar Baby Classic full-size cribs are 100% solid New Zealand pine wood, with the exception of cribs with solid backboards. Our cribs with solid backboards use CARB II compliant MDF in the board.

New Zealand pine wood is one of the most sustainable and renewable wood resources, and its forests are expanding, increasing total wood production annually.

For any product that contains MDF, we are required by law to follow the CARB (California Air Resource Board) regulations, which regulate and control formaldehyde emissions in MDF. CARB requires that our factories purchase their raw material from a certified MDF manufacturer. All MDF found in our products is from CARB certified manufacturers and is indeed safe.

What finishes/paints do you use?

Our paint is ultra-safe and all our products are lead, phthalate, and formaldehyde safe.

Paint is considered safe when it has toxic materials under 300 parts per million (ppm). In order for a company to claim low toxicity, it must have no more than 90 ppm. Babyletto products come in at less than 10ppm. We perform annual paint tests to maintain consistent quality.

Additionally while there currently no regulations for VOCs, in baby's best interest we also test for VOC contents and the results are significantly low.

What height should I set my crib's mattress support at?

Generally, the highest level is for newborns. Once your baby can roll over, sit up, or push up onto their hands and knees, the mattress support should be lowered. The higher levels make it easier to take your infant out of the crib, but they're dangerous when your child is able to pull themselves to a standing position.

The mattress support's level should be lowered as your baby grows. It should always be set to a level where they cannot climb out. By the time you child is able to pull to a standing position, the support should be at its lowest setting.

Once your child begins to climb or reaches 35" in height, we recommend that you cease using the crib or convert it to a toddler bed.

What are the warning labels on my crib?

The labels contain important safety information and are required by law. The CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) has very specific laws regarding label size and placement, as well as the adhesive used to attach them. The warning labels cover numerous hazards, such as SIDs, falling, and strangulation.

Our cribs also have tracking labels, which show MDB as the manufacturer and important information such as the product’s serial/PO number.

While we understand that the labels may be unappealing, we do not recommend you remove them. They contain vital safety information, and their removal will void the crib’s warranty. Additionally, their removal may damage the product’s finish.

How do I order replacement parts?

You can order replacement parts for your products by filling out our replacement parts form. If applicable, we will then confirm any additional details with you or send a payment request to complete your order.
