After the birth of a child the parents’ biggest concern is keeping the child safe and away from harm. To achieve that parents go through a lengthy and step-by-step process of child proofing their home. They have to go through different stages of child safety as the baby grows up. But the first room that should have your complete attention, while baby proofing, is the nursery. After you have visited a baby furniture store and furnished the nursery you can take the following steps to make it secure for your baby:
The crib is the most important piece of nursery furniture. A baby spends most of his/her time inside a crib so choose a crib that is durable and safe. When buying a crib make sure to buy a modern design and not the old drop-side cribs which are considered to be harmful for children. The crib should be void of any sharp or jagged edges. The distance between the slats of the crib shouldn’t be more three inches. The mattress should fit snuggly in the crib and not be loose. Don’t use heavy bedding to avoid suffocation risk.
The Rest of the Room
Do a thorough examination of the room. Remove furniture that is unstable and has a risk of tipping over. Install window guards which restrict the opening of the windows. Crawling babies like put their hands on everything so secure any electrical outlets in the room to avoid the risk of electrical shock. If there are any loose wires or cables in the room remove them, don’t just run them under mats or carpets. Babies can easily lift these and get to the cables underneath.
Keep the Room Clean
Cleaning the baby’s room is an essential part of baby proofing. When performing the cleaning use products that are not harmful to the health of your baby. Because your baby will be crawling on the floor and touching everything he/she can reach.
After you are done with the nursery you can move your attention to the rest of the house and as your child grows up there will be newer risks that need to be eliminated, a parent’s job is never done.
