Baby Furniture: Tips for Setting Up a Safe Nursery

Preparing a nursery is a crucial step in ensuring your baby’s well-being. This is especially important in your choice of baby furniture. From a crib to a compactum and a chair to a chest of drawers, selecting the right baby furniture is essential for creating a secure environment. Here are some valuable tips to guide you in setting up a safe and comfortable nursery that prioritises the well-being of your little one.

  • Choose a Sturdy Crib

When selecting a crib, prioritise safety features such as a firm mattress, slats spaced no more than 6 cm apart, and a stable structure. Ericssons offers a variety of cribs like the Willow cot and the Sleigh cot, ensuring a comfortable and secure sleep environment for your baby.

  • Invest in a Quality Mattress

A safety-approved mattress is crucial for your baby’s crib. The Safety Breather Cot Mattress from Ericssons provides optimal support and breathability. Remember, the mattress should fit snugly within the crib with no gaps on the sides.

  • Opt for a Compactum with Safety Measures

The small Lunar Baby Compactum from Ericssons not only adds functionality to the nursery but also incorporates safety features. Look for compactums with guardrails and a secure changing surface to prevent accidents.

  • Secure Furniture with Wall Anchors

To prevent furniture tip-overs, use wall anchors to secure items like a chest of drawers. Toddlers are little explorers and love to climb, and the possibility of furniture toppling over only increases as they grow. Ericssons offers the Holly 4 Drawer Chest and the Lunar Chest of Drawers, both designed with safety in mind.

  • Add a Safety Rail to Toddler Beds

As your baby transitions to a toddler bed, ensure it comes with a safety rail. The Single Lunar Bed with Safety Rails provides a secure sleep space for your growing child.

  • Prioritise Safety in Chair Selection

Whether you opt for a rocking chair or a glider, ensure it has a wide and stable base. Ericssons has a variety of chairs suitable for nurseries that are both safe and comfortable.

  • Keep the Nursery Well-lit

Proper lighting is essential for night-time diaper changes and feedings. Place a nightlight with a soft glow near the crib and other essential areas to navigate the room without disturbing your baby’s sleep.

  • Utilise Storage Safely

A chest of drawers not only adds storage space but also contributes to the overall aesthetics of the nursery. Ensure drawers have childproof locks to prevent curious little hands from accessing potentially hazardous items.

  • Regularly Check and Maintain Furniture

Periodically inspect all baby furniture for signs of wear, loose screws, or any potential hazards. Regular maintenance ensures the ongoing safety and functionality of the nursery.

Creating a safe nursery for your baby involves thoughtful consideration of every piece of furniture. Ericssons provides a range of baby furniture designed with safety in mind, offering peace of mind for parents. By following these tips and investing in quality baby furniture, you can create a secure, comfortable, and nurturing space for your little one to thrive.
