Although you may leave the wood untreated, we do recommend applying a finish to avoid dirt and oil from hands staining your crib. Here's some information about finishing:
This is the oil that we recommend to use with all of our natural cots.
This is the most natural oil you can use which is perfect for kids products and certified food safe, the certificate can be viewed through the link below.
To oil the cot is a simple as getting a clean rag and rubbing it onto the wood and then using another rag to wipe down the surface after it has been oiled.

Please Note with Unfinished Wood:
1. Preparation & Maintenance
It is best when unfinished wood is finished before use, either with a quality natural oil wax engineered for furniture or a non-toxic paint/lacquer. If choosing to finish with oil, it is recommended to oil periodically to help keep the wood protected from changes in humidity and from potential dirt and oil stains caused by use.
The application of a clear oil will give the wood a slightly darker tone. We suggest applying a small amount to a discreet area to test the results.
You may want to finish the edge of the mattress support of the crib but the finishing the top and bottom is not necessary.
Surfaces must be cleaned of any grease, oils, dust, dirt, wax, adhesives and other foreign materials. Surfaces must be completely dry before finish application. You must follow the manufacturer’s instruction for a safe application and a quality finish. There are no shortcuts when it comes to finishing!
2. Heavy Soiling or Staining of Oiled Furniture
Because the piece is solid wood, you also have the option of lightly sanding prior to oiling to restore it to its original condition. The piece will look brand new.
Patch where necessary, and sand surfaces with 220 grit sandpaper. Before applying oil finish, make sure surface is perfectly clean and free of dust, dirt and other foreign materials. Apply finish with rag. Let soak for 20 minutes, wipe off excess and reapply if necessary.
Drying conditions will vary greatly depending on application techniques and weather conditions. Allow 48 hours to dry before use. Typically cures to full hardness in 3 weeks. Dried surface can be buffed by hand or machine.
3. Recommended Oil/Wax Finish
Oeuf recommends AFM Safecoat Naturals Oil Wax Finish. This is an organic plant-based premium hardener and sealer for woods. There are many other options to choose from and Oeuf does not intend to endorse any particular brand. It’s best to consult with a finishing expert from a quality paint dealer to learn about your options.
