Materials and Processes

Materials

Our cribs, dressers and changers are made of New Zealand pine wood from sustainable forests. This is one of the most sustainable and renewable wood resources, and its forests are expanding, increasing total wood production annually.

When construction requires the use of medium density fiberboard (MDF), Babyletto uses only materials that are CARB II compliant.

The cushions in our rockers and gliders is Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs) free.

Stains & Paints

Our products are all formaldehyde and lead safe; the formaldehyde level for all of our furniture is undetectable.

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 (as mandated by CPSIA section 101). Babyletto products come in at less than 10ppm.

We perform annual paint tests in order to maintain consistent quality, exceeding JPMA regulations.

Testing & Quality Control

All our products are sent to a 3rd party CPSC-certified lab for testing to ensure compliance with ASTM standards.

After JPMA-certification, a random sample of 25% of our full-size cribs is tested quarterly to adhere to all guidelines and remain active participants of the JPMA Certification Program.

Our annual paint tests have allowed us to achieve consistent quality and enabled us to exceed JPMA paint safety standards.

We have created our own rigorous quality control program to stay ahead of industry standards. A quality control team at our production site individually checks and hand packs each piece to ensure the highest quality of craftsmanship before products leave our factory doors. Items are re-inspected and assembled by another team upon arrival in the US.
