Buying a crib must grasp the three hidden dangers

- May 15, 2019-

Hidden danger one: mattress

The mattresses that suffocate and trap the crib must be the size of the crib. A mattress that is too small is easy to move and may cause a gap in the bed. Excessive gaps can cause your baby's arms or legs to break into it. Your baby's arms, legs and face are buried in a soft mat that may become trapped and suffocate.

Defense preparation:

1. Push the mattress to one end of the bed and check that the remaining gap can exceed 4 cm. If you can put two fingers between the mattress and the edge of the bed, this clarifies that the mattress is too small.

2. Regularly check the support system of the baby mattress. Any hooks that are not in a reasonable position must be repaired or changed.

The hooks and bed plates supporting the mattress should be securely embedded in the grooves by the safety clips.

Note: The baby should not be placed on any soft surface. The water bed, the cloth bag containing the beans, the wrinkles and gaps of the soft and loose appearance will keep the air around the baby's face and hinder the baby's breathing.

Hidden danger two: rope

A strap that is tied and suffocated may entangle the baby's body. If you accidentally tie your neck, there is a risk of suffocation.

Defense preparation:

1. If the baby's bed is bundled with a bumper, be aware that the straps that are bundled beyond the bumper should be cut short and cut to prevent the baby from chewing or being entangled.

2. Toys, pneumatic accessories, pacifiers and bedding should also be checked to ensure that there is no rope that exceeds 18 cm long and may suffocate the baby.

Note: Baby who can sit up, do not install bumpers on the bed.

Hidden Three: Bedding

Obstacle breathing, suffocating soft bedding certainly looks comfortable, but once the baby is hugged, it may block the head and affect breathing.
