Safe finishes for baby furniture



My husband has been making the furniture for our nursery (baby due 1/27/00!) and is at the point where he is going to be finishing it - staining and lacquering/polyurethaning. We are looking for information as to what would be safe/unsafe products to use - particularly on the crib. Any help would be most welcome! Thanks!

I would like the answer to the question--what is a safe finish to put on baby furniture. Is Tung Oil [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] safe or a fast drying polyurethane?

Through much determination my mother, bless her, saved my old baby furniture. I accepted the dresser and the crib and I am in the process of stripping and refinishing these pieces. By the way, my baby coming 10/4/07.
I have the same question as the original post (4216). What is a safe way to finish this baby furniture? Thank you. I look forward to your answer.
