  • The structure must be solid and in perfect condition to support the baby’s weight.
  • If the frame has wheels, check that the brake works.
  • Check that the wicker is not broken so that any splinter can come out between the clothes and stick to your baby
  • Also note that there is no type of bug inside, which over the years, if not well preserved when stored, can get moth-eaten or even have other types of animal deterioration.
