Safety Aspects for a Child's First Bedroom

April 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 234

Is it time for the toddler to move into his own room and out of the cot into a real bed? Then there are certain things you have to take into consideration if you want to keep them safe and secure in their new surroundings.

Most people aren't too aware that they should foolproof their home if they have children, and the younger they are the more careful you have to be, particularly when they move into their own bedroom where they can get into all kinds of mischief that you've probably never even thought about.

Youngsters are known to be really accident prone as they have no sense of danger; this is something that has to be learnt as they grow. Falling out of bed is just one of the most common accidents that occur when first sleeping in a new 'grown up' bed. But don't despair as there are various ways to avoid and minimize the mishaps in a toddler's life.

If it's your toddlers first time being in a bed rather than a cot, and the first time they sleep alone in a room of their own, then it can be an exciting time for them although a worrying time for you. The best way to avoid them falling off bed when asleep is to buy a product with rails along the side, place the single bed along the wall on one side and pull up the rail when they are tucked up and about to go off to sleep.

Very simple to fit with minimal assembly, the mechanism ensures a snug fit and can be folded down so the sheets can be changed and the bed accessed. They come in various sizes and heights, can be used in pairs, and are available in wood.

Now the bed is sorted out it's time to check the rest of the furniture in the room to ensure it can't be pulled or tipped over easily and hurt the child if it should fall onto them. This might seem unlikely to you but consider how a child likes to climb on everything and see that tall chests of drawers with the big handles? Now have a rethink!

Those bedside tables might look like ordinary pieces of furniture to us, but to an inquisitive miniature toddler, night stands and dressers are temptations waiting to be climbed up and perch on the top as if on a mountain!

As well as buying furniture that is solid and heavy and isn't likely to be going anywhere unless two big strong men are involved, there are also straps you can buy and attach that hold the piece to the wall. Wall straps are designed to keep furniture, even heavy items like an oak chest of drawers, in place and come with two adjustable nylon straps that are simply attached to the back of the item and to the wall, creating a hidden restraint.

The main worry about your young child having a bedroom of their own is that you can't keep an eye on them 24 hours a day, and unless you demand they keep the bedroom door open are constantly worrying about what's going on in there! Kids seem to like to do things like stick their fingers in electricity sockets, one sensible buy are those outlet plug covers that will stop them even contemplating this.

Wire guards are great if there are lots of wires hanging around as they tuck them all away neatly and conceal them, lamps, CD players, TV, and anything else that may interest a toddler. Generally the less temptation in front of the child the less mischief they can get into!
