Buy early in your pregnancy, so that by the time your baby is born the chemical smell is gone.

The crib is very well made, beautiful, and an elegant piece of furniture. We bought it for our granddaughter November2018, a month before her first visit to our home. The chemical smell initially was very strong so, even though it is winter here in Michigan, we kept all three windows open in the room, and placed a snake plant in the room to promote the removal of the chemical smell. During our granddaughter's first visit to our home she was not able to sleep in the room where the crib was placed due to its smell. She ended up sleeping with her parents in another room. Approximately 1 1/2 months after receiving the crib, it still had a very strong chemical smell. I would reduce the overall rating down to a three star just due to the smell. Now, March 11, 2019 the crib still has a chemical smell, but it is diminishing. I would like to know the reason for this smell. When we brought baby beds for our children 30-40 years ago we had no such problem.
