Safe Baby Nursery Guide
Tips to create a nursery that looks good and is also safe and cozy for your little one.
In this blog post, I am taking you through steps to create a safe nursery for your baby champ!
You will be exploring the safety measures that ensure millions of moms (that includes me too :P) can workaround daily chores without any hindrance for about 7-8 hours. Of course, your baby takes a break from nursery space in between for feeds.
Creating a safe play area & space for your baby can end your stressful daily marathon behind your champ. You can experience a focused & productive work schedule as before having your kid for at least an hour or so!
However, it becomes a mandate to child-proof your space entirely after your baby has turned into 5-6 months old!
Let’s begin to architect your baby’s play area with the best nursery safety tips & tricks!
Cribs are the primary shelter space for your baby in his/her room for the first few years of their life. You can explore a variety of features while purchasing the crib for your baby. Choosing a wiser one will save your spending on baby’s bedding options every year.
Babies can bump around while rolling over here and there in the nursery space. Hence, fixing the baby crib in the appropriate corners of the nursery room can safeguard them from unnoticed bumps and other traps, also these comfort cribs can act as sleep sacks for your babies.
Crib safety is vital for babies and as suggested by pediatric sleep specialists they insist on proper crib arrangements to prevent crib death and safe sleep time.
Heavy furniture, decor, mobile, or even the essentials organized over the baby’s head can fall off anytime due to glitches in nails, slurries, cracks. So, it’s better to stop from placing these items near or above the crib to safeguard your champ’s witty head & brains!
Babies explore new things with determined acts. If there are any toys or leftovers below the crib space, they try to roll down or put their heads into the slats to get what they want.
This can end up in risk of strangulation and entangling of the baby’s head. Ensure your baby is protected in every element while they’re into the crib space as minor errors can lead to crib deaths or infant death syndrome(SIDS).
A separate crib doesn’t render ultimate comfort to your baby. Including a perfect fitting comfortable mattress is a must for a baby nursery. But, the wrong choice of mattress can end up in head injuries, suffocation & strangulation risk.
Babies are so small and are prone to be entangled within bedspreads over the mattresses. Unorganized bedspreads can result in suffocation hazards. So it’s vital to fix the bedsheets without any accidental injuries.
As said earlier, you will find cribs with three distinct positions for fixing the mattresses. Babies can make you wow by climbing or standing in the crib with the help of just a crib mattress sometimes. Adjusting the crib height as your baby grows saves your baby from head bumps.
In the first few years of a baby, the favorite spot to sleep and have comfort is at mommy’s breast. Arranging a comfortable nursing space with cushioned sofa, footrest, a small table to organize water bottles & snacks in your baby nursery can make your mommy life easier.
Parenting is the toughest job that requires 24/7 dedication and consciousness for which they do not get any salary! This routine task can be made simpler and go-lucky with simple easy-peasy changing-table hacks.
Child experts reveal that most of the babies are suffering from stomach upsets and toxicity by exposure to their essentials, baby care items & cosmetics. In specific, babies are prone to lung infections when they consume or inhale these particles with close contact.
From the above safety concerns, you’d have explored the toxicity of cosmetics and medicines that are placed in the top drawers of the changing table. Now, what if this drawer itself causes harm for your baby with entangling risks.
Windows are another key player in causing domestic accidents even for adults. It becomes mandatory to secure your baby from window risks with guards.
Window curtains are not only for décor purposes but also to curate the lighting of the room. But, sometimes these curtains may turn out to be causing strangulation hazards, suffocation, and domestic accidents.
Furniture is designed to comfort us. Sometimes, unnoticed pop-ups such as furniture straps, nails, slurry, repaired ones and other pieces of furniture can cause domestic accidents to babies.
The baby nursery includes a baby monitor, TV, speakers, mobiles. Mobiles are usually hanged above the crib spot. However, these bulky features can be highly risky in your champ’s room if placed carelessly.
Electric sockets are a high-risk factor in the baby’s space. Before your newborn arrives, you must secure the electric sockets, unused outlets & other pointers as child-proof to avoid electrical shocks.
It is essential to ensure proper lighting even when the babies sleep in the nursery. If there are any emergencies or they wake up suddenly, we should not stumble without proper vision. At the same time, the lights shouldn’t be brighter while your baby is sleeping.
Right from gestation, parents are excited about shopping for their favorite toys for babies in the womb. But, the real fact is most babies don’t love their playtime with these toys and are prone to cause suffocation. Hence, it becomes mandatory to organize the unattended toys in the nursery space.
Your baby is an extraordinary wholesome human being who has no fear or care about anything in this world. Their only aim is to explore all the new things around them and your courtyard space is one among them. Hence, courtyard safety also comes into play for baby nurseries.
Every parent is excited about decorating their baby nursery with fantasy characters, chimes, hangings, decorative cutouts, and other items. But, going for minimalistic décor is the expert suggested safety measure for nursery rooms.
Babies are a bundle of joy and amusement. They can make you weird and dumbstruck sometimes with potential accidents. Hence, you have to prepare for emergencies in advance, even though you create a safe nursery by predicting the common dangers.
There you go with 21 essential safety measures to set up your baby nursery!
Just try out feeding your baby and leaving in the nursery space with safety gates & some harmless toys after fixing the baby monitor! Sure, you’d find at least a minimum of productive 30-60 minutes. If your baby has any choking hazard, seek advice from doctors than elders or other persons nearby.
