A safely made baby bed
Everything is almost ready. The baby's room is finished, all the clothes are hanging in the closet and the bedding has been washed. Ready to make up the crib or cot for the little sprout. But how exactly do you do that?
Follow these five steps
A crib or cot bed can be made in a safe way in the following 5 steps:
Take the bed sheet and the blanket and place them on top of each other. Let the sheet come out about 20 cm from under the blanket and turn this part over. This way there is an edge of sheet over the blanket.
Safely making the bed
It doesn't matter whether you make up a crib or a cot. The most important thing for both is that you make it 'short'. This means that your baby's feet are almost against the foot end. This way you know for sure that your little one will be safe in the bed. Your baby cannot slide down, which makes sure he does not disappear under the bedding.
Tuck in tight
Always tuck the bedding in tightly at the sides and the foot end. This prevents your baby from turning and from lying in a position that obstructs breathing. Of course, your little one can't turn back (well) on its own yet. Additional advantage: tucked in bedding gives a sense of security and safety.
