If family and country are top priorities to you, you are going to love these baby cribs made in America. You can assure you will be putting your child in a sturdy, safe piece of furniture while also directly contributing to the job security of your fellow citizens. For these crib recommendations I personally researched for the materials used, the manufacturing locations, and the craftsmanship involved in the construction. These cribs also meet or exceed the JPMA standards for children's products.
Since a baby crib is one of the most important investments in an infant's life, having domestic controls, American craftsmanship, and the involvement of US safety standards is imperative. Why trust your baby's comfort to any less? In addition, pulling America up by employing our citizens and encouraging self-reliant manufacturing and skilled trades work is a great step toward true American independence.
