Purchasing Decent Furnishings For A Baby’s Play Room

By Patricia Soon

Today, so many parents are concerned about the safety standards in baby furniture. It’s not surprising as in the past, products such as badly made high chairs and cots have led to many serious injuries and even death. So when it comes to buying furniture for your child, make sure you put safety first!

To begin with, knowing what to look out for as likely safety hazards is the key to picking the right products. Here are a few key factors that you should be considering.

Do these products meet the age and also height requirements of your baby? Check the labels of the product for safety guidelines. Are the materials used safe for babies? In the past there has been recalls for many baby-related products made in China due to the lead poisoning scare. Which products have bad reviews and if so, why? These are a critical list of things you need to find out before you go shopping.

You will find reviews for most popular baby products left by others who have purchased in the past on large shopping sites such as and so forth. That should be your first stop when it comes to doing your own research.

Bassinet & Cot Safety

Thinking of buying a bassinet? Bassinets are extremely popular these days due to the fact that it can be easily moved from one room to another whilst also being detachable off its legs so u can transport your baby around in it.

Some bassinets come with wheels that make mobilizing a lot easier but these can also become a safety hazard. Look out for models that give you the option of locking its wheels, or wheel removal when not required.

How about a cot then? While bassinets are generally suitable for newborns, cots are for the larger infants who can move around in bed. Because of this, bassinets are no longer safe to use and cots are a more sturdy option. If you decide to purchase a baby cot that requires you to assemble it on your own, then make sure you read the instruction manual very carefully to ensure that you have put everything together the right way, or it could be a potential safety hazard to your baby.

It’s not safe to put wall cushions or bumpers on your own into the cot. The reason for this is that you may increase the risk of cot death.

Keep the cot clean and clear of any items that could potentially suffocate or choke your baby. Such things include pillows, cushions or toys that may end up covering your baby’s face or strangling its neck.
