Crib and Bedroom Safety Tips

Here are some safety tips to help make your baby’s bedroom and crib a safer place for her. It is important to note that this is not a complete list of baby hazards, but rather a guide to help you better understand how to better identify these hazards.

  • Locate the crib away from windows where broken glass and blind cords can pose serious threats to your baby.

  • Keep cribs away from any accessible electrical outlets.

  • The crib rail should require at least two movements to move it down. This helps prevent small children from opening the rail by themselves.

  • Prevent suffocation or entanglement. Never use a crib sheet unless it fits securely on crib mattress. Make sure the crib sheet overlaps the mattress so it cannot be dislodged by pulling on the corner of the sheet.

  • Never use an adult sheet on a crib mattress; it can come loose and present an entanglement hazard to baby.

  • Remove pillows, quilts, comforters, and sheepskins from the crib.

  • Place a baby on his/her back on a firm, tight-fitting mattress in a crib meeting current safety standards.

  • Keep pictures and other wall hangings away from cribs so they cannot accidentally fall into the crib, then hurt your baby.

  • Hanging toys in the crib can cause children’s clothes to become tangled.

  • Remove mobiles when your baby is 5-7 months old or sooner, if necessary.

  • Keep bedroom doors closed while baby is sleeping.

  • Use a monitor to listen for children if they sleep in another room.

Hopefully these tips could help you to provide safe bedroom and cri for your beloved one.

These are excellent tips on baby safety. When my oldest daughter was in the crib she used her crib bumper to hoist herself out of the crib and luckily she didn't get hurt, but she definitely cried loud enough to freak me out. I didn't do enough research to know that crib bumpers are a no-no! I'd recommend that all parents read up on baby safety info when it comes to cribs and other baby furniture and baby proofing. Here's a great blog with an excellent baby safety section
