Making the Crib Safe

Learn How to Babyproof Your Crib and Nursery

Babyproofing should be uppermost in your mind when setting up baby's nursery room. We recommend those who haven't yet created a safe and secure room for baby should take note of the following tips:

Ensure the Crib is Safe

A new crib will meet current safety standards whereas a five year old second-hand cot may not. For instance, the distance between crib bars should be no more than two and three-eighths of an inch. This is an area in which purchasing a new crib is more of a necessity than a luxury.

A baby under the age of six months could suffocate on a stuffed toy, or bedding including blankets and pillows. Ensure the sheets fit the mattress tightly and save the blankets, toys and pillows for toddlerhood.

Here is a list of items to help you outfit the nursery:

  • A safe toy box - open bin boxes are safer than those with heavy lids

  • Finger-pinch guards for door hinges

  • A thick pile rug to cushion falls

  • UL listed night lights and replacement bulbs
