The best place to put the crib is near the door of your baby’s room so you can quickly reach them when you’re stumbling around in the middle of the night, or in case of an emergency. Also, follow these safety guidelines as you place the crib. Never put your baby’s crib near a window.
Can you put a crib in the corner?
If the crib has corner posts, they should be flush with the end panels, or they should be very, very tall (such as posts on a canopy bed). Clothing and ribbons can catch on tall corner posts and strangle an infant. All screws, bolts, nuts, plastic parts, and other hardware should be present and original equipment.
Can you put a crib in the middle of a room?
Avoid placing the crib too close to the door or directly in line with it. Ideally, position the crib with the head against a solid wall so the bed’s length is perpendicular to the wall. Do not place the crib in the middle of the room with no support, or under a window.
Is it safe to hang a mobile over a crib?
It’s best not to hang hard-edge, glass-encased pictures over your baby’s crib or changing table. Put them elsewhere. Mobiles, another common fixture in baby’s rooms, should not contain small parts that could become choking hazards, and should be hung out of the baby’s reach.
How far away should a crib be from a window?
In fact, more than 3,000 window fall-related injuries are reported each year in the United States for children under the age of 5.
Some hazards to consider are:
- Power outlets: All outlets in the room should be covered or use safe plates.
- Cords and draperies: Crib should be at least a foot away from any windows.
When should I start the nursery?
Between 2 and 3. The majority of children start nursery between the ages of 2 and 3. By this age children are independent and curious, and are growing more interested in other children. These are all signs that your child is ready to start nursery and begin socialising with other kids.
