- When Reagan was a newborn I would not let her sleep in the crib because I thought that she might get her little arm caught in the rail so she slept in her bassinet until she learned to sit up.
- I would not allow bumpers in the crib because it increases the risk of SIDS (it is recommended that bumpers are not put in the crib for this reason, so this one was practical).
- The main toilet has to have a latch on it because the baby might crawl in and drown. The door has to be securely shut EVERY TIME because she might still get in there and figure out that latch and drown.
- Every door has to be checked several times to make sure that it is locked because I don't want the Reagan crawling out of her crib at night and then finding her way to the door and then getting trapped outside (she has never climbed out of her crib).
- Nothing except for a blanket can be in the crib because anything else could be used as a stool to climb out of the crib.
- Every outlet has to have a plastic cover on it.
- A carbon monoxide detector has to be in the babies room (practical because we had a carbon monoxide leak at our old house and almost died)
My main point is that we have to protect our little ones. At this age, they depend on us for everything. I could not live with myself if something happened to my daughter because of my negligence.
