Crib inspections can help prevent injuries
By inspecting your cribs daily, you can proactively reduce the likelihood of a child suffering a crib-related injury. The Safe Nursery Guide offers the following tips for maintaining a safe crib:
If you use crib toys, make sure there are no strings or cords dangling in the crib. When children reach the age of five months, or when they can push up on their hands and knees, remove crib gyms and mobiles to reduce strangulation and choking hazards.
Practice “Back to Sleep” for SIDS prevention. Always place infants on their backs for sleep, unless a note from the child’s doctor specifies otherwise. Seek written permission from both parents if they want to stray from this sleeping rule.
