Injury Prevention

Arranging Your Baby’s Room

Arranging the furniture safely in your child’s room is a good way to prevent injuries. With a little planning, you can make your child's room hazard-free.

  • Do not place your baby’s crib or changing table near windows, curtains, blinds, pull-cords, lamps, electrical cords, outlets, appliances (such as fans, heaters or humidifiers) or any other piece of furniture that your child can use to climb out of a crib.
  • Avoid dangling electrical cords or extension cords anywhere in your baby’s room.
