Safety in Baby's Room

Planning a room for baby in your home is always fun and a great time to be creative but you should also consider some safety issues. The fun part comes from the shopping. There are a lot of items available from furniture to clothing and it is very tempting to mix and match them and create a perfect whole.

However, safety in a baby's room must be first priority, no matter how beautiful the items may be before you buy - or make - anything, make sure everything is 100% safe.

Crib safety

Make sure the baby can't get its head, or arm, between the slats. The space between slats should be no more than two inches apart.
Check that there are no missing, loose or cracked slats.
Make sure that the mattress fits into the crib properly.
Use only fitted-bottom sheets that are made especially for cribs.
Remove pillows, quilts and comforters. Your baby needs a flat, hard surface to sleep on.
Place the crib away from windows, cords, lamps, decoration or climbable furniture and do not hang a ceiling light fixture above the baby's crib.
Once your baby can stand remove any mobiles or toys that hang across the crib and adjust the mattress to its lowest position.
Place your baby on his back to sleep in order to reduce the likelihood of SIDS.

Nursery safety

Install window guards, and buy cordless window coverings if possible.
Avoid baby walkers with wheels especially if you live in a home with steps.
Always put plug protectors in electrical outlets.
Store baby powder, lotion, alcohol-based hand gel, and other supplies in a drawer or on a shelf beyond your baby's reach.
Use lightweight decorations, mirrors or heavy picture frames could seriously injure your baby if they fell.
Never leave a baby unattended on a changing table.
Store baby lotion, alcohol-based hand gel, and other supplies in a drawer or on a shelf beyond your baby's reach.
