We know you’re super-mom-to-be, but we suggest sitting this one out—or at least partnering with, well, your partner, since most cribs need two people for assembly. It’s no easy feat to begin with, but it’s even harder while you’re pregnant. Crib parts are heavy, and there’s a considerable amount of bending and lifting involved in the process. Make sure he puts aside at least one hour to complete the assembly and be sure to follow the crib manufacturer’s exact instructions, using only the hardware provided and the type of tools recommended.
