Furniture- Any furniture that baby has access to that is taller than it is wide has the potential to tip over and cause injury

How to Make Your Nursery a Safe Haven for baby! Step Three

Cords- Both window cords and electrical cords pose a hazard to baby.
 Tape down all electrical cords, or for more protection, run cords through electrical cord covers and then secure to the wall.
 Avoid using window covers that have long cords that hang down. If your window coverings do have long cords, tie them up so those are not with reach of your baby. Keep all furniture away from the windows, so that when your child starts to climb, they cannot reach the window.
Crib bedding bumper pads, if the breathable kind, should contain strings no longer than 7-9 inches.

How to Make Your Nursery a Safe Haven for baby! Step Two

Baby’s Toy Storage- It is recommended that open storage containers be used to avoid injury.
 Open storage bins.
 Toy boxes without covers.
 Look for soft smooth edged storage. Avoiding storage with sharp edges or if needed add safety edge guards.
 Per American Pediatrics the best toy box is one without a lid. If it has a lid it should have hinges that stay open at any position, so not to pinch baby’s skin. It should be sturdy and have ventilation holes, should your child get trapped inside.

How to Make Your Nursery a Safe Haven for baby! Step One

The Crib- First and foremost you want your baby’s crib to be a safe place. The choices you make in regards to their crib, crib bedding and crib mattress will aid in your baby’s safety and will reduce the risk if (SIDS) Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. These suggestions are not guarantees of your baby’s safety but helpful suggestions to providing a safe environment for your baby.
 A Firm mattress for the crib and that it fits tightly against the slats of the crib
 No pillows, stuffed animals or other soft, puffy items in the crib. Don’t add extra blankets.
 No more than two and a half inches between the crib bars- Baby’s body can fall through and the head stops the body from falling completely through causing strangulation.
 When selecting crib bedding make sure that your crib bedding set has a thin breathable bumper if included in the crib bedding set.
 Keep your baby comfortable and be sure not to overheat your baby with
too much crib bedding.
 When your baby begins to stand up and climb around, remove all bumpers from inside of the crib, since they provide an easy step-up to help them get out.
 Also, remove any mobiles that maybe hanging above the crib, if pulled down baby can become entangled in them.
