Health Tip: Toddler-Proof Baby's Bed
(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.
