Blogging Parenting Magazine: Baby Gear Dangers

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Sure, modern parents love their gear, but it’s somewhat surprising how many thousands of children are injured by this gear every year. Parenting has a great list of ways to protect your child whether they’re in the car seat, stroller, or crib.

Here are just a few of the safety tips:

• Don’t put car seats on high surfaces or anywhere they might tip over.
• Make sure your child’s safety belts are secured before you pick up the seat.

• Always buckle your child into the stroller
• Lock the stroller in the open position so it doesn’t accidentally close up while your child is in it.

• Make sure your crib mattress fits snugly.
• Keep the crib away from windows with blinds and long cords.

All of this might seem a little obvious, but it’s good to be reminded.
