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.
When you put your baby down to sleep or nap in her cot¯ always lay her on her back to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Refrain from using a pillow with your child until at last two years of age and keep toys with small parts or elastic cords out of the cot. Always leave the drop sides locked in the up position and lock any rolling casters as well.
The placement of your baby`s cot in the nursery is another important safety factor. Avoid placing the cot near windows¯ especially those with curtains or blinds. Cords on window coverings are a leading cause of strangulation in young children.
