(HealthDay News) -- Keeping your toddler's bed safe will help everyone sleep more soundly at night.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these safety tips for your toddler's bed:

  • Remove bumper pads and stuffed animals from the crib, as the toddler can use them to climb out.
  • Take out any objects with strings that could accidentally become wrapped around a toddler's neck.
  • Inspect the room for anything close to your toddler's bed that is within reach, including blinds, curtains, objects on the dresser or wall hangings.
  • If your toddler is very active, consider moving him or her to a toddler bed from the crib.
