In the same way that parents buy special chairs to take the baby in the car and travel safely, it is important that the newborn's room is adapted to their needs and the furniture chosen is safe and functional.
Decorating the baby's room is a task that many parents are excited about, but in many cases more attention is paid to the decorative details than to the practical ones. It is important to know what kind of furniture the baby needs and how these should be.
Safe and functional furniture for the baby's room
Equipping the baby's room with furniture that is safe for the baby is fundamental. This is the basic furniture for the newborn:
Cradle. When choosing the best model, it is necessary to follow some recommendations.
- The bars must have a distance between them of less than 7 centimeters to prevent the baby from introducing the head.
- The mattress should have the same size as the mattress to avoid having side holes where the baby's head, hands or feet can fit.
- The crib must be solid and stable. We have to periodically check the screws, joints or bars to confirm that everything is in place.
- The height of the crib must be equal to or greater than 60 centimeters from the base of the mattress to the top of the bars to avoid jumping over them.
- The chichonera or protector that is placed around the cradle must be well secured so that the child can not get caught.
Changer. There are many models (with drawers, which fit on top of the crib, bathtubs-changers, only the canvas to put on it the baby ...) No - You do not need to buy a large changing cabinet if there is no space in the house to put it . In the absence of a place to put or budget, just a simple canvas that can be placed on the bed of parents.
- It is important to never leave the baby only on the changing table even if it is newborn, they can turn and fall.
. It is useful for babies from 6 to 12 months and is used for children to be entertained alone while parents perform other activities.- You must always be in the same room where the parents are
- Keep the corralito of curtains, plugs ... as the baby can stand and grab them.
- Make sure it is in perfect condition, to prevent the child from getting hooked or injured.
