Your baby`s cot should meet the current infant bedding safety standards. The bars should be at least 45mm apart to prevent your baby`s arms and legs from becoming trapped between them¯ but no more than 65mm apart so her head will not slip through.
To prevent burn injuries¯ never use electric blankets¯ heating pads¯ or hot water bottles in your infant`s cot. Once your infant can sit up on her own¯ you should move the mattress to the lowest position to keep her from falling over the edge when she begins to pull up. After she learns to lift herself to a crawling position¯ it is time to remove any hanging toys like mobiles that could strangle her. When she is pulling herself up to a standing position¯ remove any large toys or bumper accessories in the cot that may serve as climbing aids. Once your little one starts climbing¯ or when her chest is above the cot`s top rail¯ it is time to move her to a toddler or standard sized bed.
You should as well as consider placing the cot away from other nursery furniture that may help your little one climb out of her bed in the future. Lamps and heaters can also pose dangers if they are left to close to your baby`s cot. Do not hang pictures¯ mirrors¯ or other objects that may fall on your infant directly above the cot.
