Your baby’s curious mind wants to experience everything in the world around him/her. Your baby wants to discover, learn and try new things and your outlook on life has also changed with the birth of your baby. Your coffee table, which was once nothing but a decorative object in your home, is, today, a barrier that you have to remove to ensure that your baby can move around comfortably. It is important that he/she is safe in his/her pursuit of discoveries and experiments in order to ensure his/her development is a happy and healthy one.

Ensuring Your baby Sleeps Safe

It is essential for your baby to sleep deeply and comfortably to achieve happy and healthy growth. Most mothers use bed or crib safety rails of sufficient height to prevent the baby from falling or climbing out of the bed/crib, thus ensuring that the baby’s sleep is not interrupted. The foldable safety rails that are available for most baby beds offer a convenient solution as they provide secure bedding for your baby. Taking sleep safety a step further, you can also lay down soft cushions beside your baby’s bed to soften the impact if he/she rolls down or, if necessary,  place the mattress on the floor.

Does your baby have a soft and cuddly toy to hug before falling asleep peacefully? Games and toys are the best tools to establish a connection between your baby and her world and teach her the things she needs to learn regarding life. That is to say games are not just for entertainment, but rather act like a stage on which life is played out. If your baby wishes to take some of the toys he/she plays with to sleep, then we recommend that you choose a soft toy that does not contain small parts, long ties, strings or anything too big that may interrupt his/her sleep.

Are you ready to go on the road with your baby?

As you may well know, it is important to transport your baby in a car seat. This is necessary to ensure the safe transportation of your baby.  However, it doesn’t end there, it is very important for babies younger than 1 year of age to have the infant carrier securely fastened on the back seat of your car facing opposite the flow of the traffic. If you have fastened the car seat for your baby on one of the rear passenger seats without an airbag, ensure you put on the child lock on the door and window adjacent to the car seat. Now you’re ready to safely embark on your journey.
