INF_CribSafety635x315_1.pngBabies falling out of their cribs account for 66 percent of crib injuries—but that’s not the only thing to worry about. Provide a safe place for your baby to sleep by following these simple tips:

  • Avoid blankets and pillows
  • Keep toys and stuffed animals away from the crib
  • No crib tents
  • Never use drop-down sides
  • A firm mattress is a must
  • Maintain at least 26 inches between the mattress and the crib rail

When your child reaches 35 inches tall, it’s time for a new bed.
