Nursey Safety Do’s
- Do make sure there is a working smoke detector in (or next to) baby’s room

- Do ensure your cot mattress is a tight fit and there are no gaps between cot and mattress
- Do ensure mattress protectors are a firm fit *Smart Dri Pic?

Nursery Safety Don’ts
- Don’t place cots or furniture under/next to windows
- Don’t use toy storage boxes with heavy lids as they can be hazardous to little hands or children may climb into them
- Don’t leave the cords for curtains/blinds where children can reach them
- Don’t choose heavy décor. Lightweight hanging items will prevent injury if they fall. *decals/canvas prints image?
