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.
Play time is important for children to develop skills, to learn how to share and to use their imaginations. One way that young children explore the world is by sucking and chewing on those toys. Unfortunately, many toys have hidden hazards within them. Choosing the right toys that are fun but also safe is an important part of parenting your children.
