Safety & Certifications

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 recommend against removing them. They contain vital safety information, and their removal will void the crib's warranty. Additionally, removing them may damage your product's finish.

As every child grows at a different rate, it's mostly critical to pay attention to your child's height. We recommend that you convert your crib to a toddler bed or stop using your crib when your child begins to climb or reaches 35" in height.

For toddler bed conversions, the weight limit is 50 lbs.

For full-size bed conversions, the weight limit is 500 lbs.

The weight limit for our changers is 30 lbs.

Starting 2016, we have decided to phase out of the JPMA program in order to invest in more rigorous certifications, such as GREENGUARD Gold, that have become more relevant to consumers and industry experts.

We continue to meet and exceed industry standards for safety, including voluntary ASTM standards for all of our products. Additionally, our full-sized cribs meet Canadian standard SOR/2010-261. Our standard for safety has not changed.

We use an independent third party lab to test all of our products. To ensure our products continue to adhere to all guidelines, we retest 25% of our full-size crib models every quarter.


We understand that when babies are teething, they will often chew on anything they can. Rest assured our finishes are non-toxic and will not harm your child. Our cribs meet CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) and ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standards, and are lead, phthalate, and formaldehyde safe.

If you would like to avoid your child chewing on their crib, several companies manufacture crib rail protectors that you can purchase.


At Ubabub focus on designing nursery furniture that is distinctly modern, eco-conscious, and most importantly safe.

The GREENGUARD Gold seal certifies that our furniture has been independently tested and verified to meet rigorous standards for chemical emissions and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as formaldehyde or phthalates.

GREENGUARD Gold offers some of the world's most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of VOCs into indoor air which can be a major source of indoor air pollution and may contribute to health problems in children such as asthma and allergies. Products carrying the seal have been tested for over 10,000 chemicals and more than 360 VOCs and certified as low-emitting by this independent, trusted 3rd party.

why is indoor air quality important?

Air pollution levels are 2-5 times higher indoors than outdoors

Indoor spaces are often filled with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chemicals that are released into the air from everyday products such as furniture. 

People spend 90% of their time indoors

Once airborne, VOCs are inhaled by occupants. As a result, people receive over 70% of their environmental exposure to chemicals indoors.
