Your baby is growing and getting bigger. This is an exciting time for both you and your child, as you get to watch the baby learn and explore the world. This is also the time to take some steps to keep your child safe in the nursery. As your child continues to grow, so does the importance of safety. Your child will want to touch and taste everything, without any awareness of potential danger. Put yourself in the perspective of your child and consider what areas or items in the nursery may be risky. The important thing is your child’s safety, rather than how the room looks. These ten simple steps will help you transform your baby’s room into a safe haven for fun, play and exploration.
Last night when Miles Storm finished up bath time and was getting towled off, he slipped on the wet floor, fell backwards and hit his head. I tried to catch him but didn’t make it in time. He was really upset, but eventually calmed down and went to sleep for the night. This morning when he woke up, I breastfed him and not long after that he started vomiting every 10 minutes. After about an hour of this we knew we had to take him to the hospital. One thing you learn being a new parent is that children fall, and they are usually okay. When he was born we freaked out about everything and have been known to take him to the ER for things that seem a little silly, (in retrospect).
