The edges must be made harmless with special protections, better to avoid carpets unless they are non-slip. When the child is very young, avoid leaving potentially dangerous objects around unattended, such as ropes, strings or other toys that can become dangerous, such as very large or very small objects.

Cleaning and hygiene

Cleaning of the room must be frequent, the first thing to do is to air the room in the morning to get adequate air exchange. Pillows and blankets will need to be shaken and aired at least once a week and the mattress should also be aired and turned periodically.

The furniture should be vacuumed and dusted at least two or three times a week to keep the area tidy. When washing linen and baby items it is advisable to use special products and proceed with an adequate rinse to avoid the persistence of residues. On moist surfaces, germs can survive and multiply rapidly, you can help prevent germs from growing by keeping surfaces, toys and clothes clean and dry.
