Health Tip: Toddler-Proof Baby's Bed
(HealthDay News) -- Keeping your toddler's bed safe will help everyone sleep more soundly at night.
The Cleveland Clinic offers these safety tips for your toddler's bed:
Remove bumper pads and stuffed animals from the crib, as the toddler can use them to climb out.
Take out any objects with strings that could accidentally become wrapped around a toddler's neck.
Inspect the room for anything close to your toddler's bed that is within reach, including blinds, curtains, objects on the dresser or wall hangings.
If your toddler is very active, consider moving him or her to a toddler bed from the crib.
