Topic tags/keywords: crib mattress springs baby resource

I haven’t been able to find a place to buy a crib mattress spring for a new crib that I am building. Does anyone know where I can buy springs for the crib mattress?

Every crib I’ve ever built had a solid bottom that the mattress sat on. Most of what I’ve read indicates that spings in a crib are a safety hazard. So I quit trying for springs.

Thanks for the advice. I came to that same conclusion yesterday. Thanks again.

Thank you for your response and the info. I think I’m going to build a wood slat bottom.

Crib mattress frames are available from or Metal hardware has been around for over 100 years and any safety concerns have been from faulty imported plastic hardware that is used or from incorrect assembly.

Be careful with the slat layout. There is a safety standard for the spacing as there is with the vertical pieces on the sides if present. Search the CPSC website for crib standards. HTH,
