Paint for crib....

I started sanding the crib from my first 2 boys and getting it for the new arival in January. My question is what is the best paint to use.....I am thinking that latex wood be the best. I have heard that there is a non-toxic paint fot toys. I also have read that most paint is non-toxic when cured but want to be as safe as I can.......................Brian

You can not buy toxic finishes in the U.S. (when it is dry). By law.
Some finishes are considered food safe- not sure about any paints.
Shellac is actaully edible- I'll bet you've ingested some recently. They use it to coat pills.
I used some "toy friendly" wood dyes for a puzzle I did last year, for my nephew. I may not have harmed him in any way, but the darn stuff would come off on your fingers as you played with the puzzle.

MilkPaint and Shellac. You won't get any safer. Buy powders/flakes and mix it yourself to insure you don't get any chemicals that might have been used for shelf stabilizers.
