Designing a nursery for your baby is not all about painting different colors and putting cute designs in the room. It is also essential to prioritize safety.
Here are some tips to keep the nursery comfortable and safe for your baby:
Crib Style and Design Safety
There are guidelines when regard to the construction of the crib. The safety standard about the slats is that is must not wide enough to get the child stuck its head. They should not be wider than the width of a soda can.
A simple crib has a lower risk of hurting your child or causing an accident. Do not put cutout designs particularly on the end panels of the crib. Knobs are a no-no as they can snatch babies' clothes and cause strangulation.
In addition, always check the bolts and screws if they are not broken or loose.
Baby care products may help in the hygiene of your child, but they can also poison your baby when ingested. So, keep alcohol, lotion, powder, baby oil, and other personal-care products out of the child's reach.
Another thing to check is the safety strap on the changing table. A baby can easily wiggle out of it. It is much safer to hold your Baby with one hand especially when you are not looking.
The things you decorate in the nursery can hurt and injure your Baby, for example, large picture frames and heavy mirrors. Take extra care when choosing furniture. Plywood, particleboard, and pressed wood may have formaldehyde content in them that can bring about breathing problems and irritation of the throat and nose.
