Choose a comfortable bed for your newborn baby
The bed of the newborn is the main “activity” place for the newborn. It has its own bed to develop the habit of sleeping alone from a young age. Therefore, it is very important to choose a comfortable bed.
Newborn beds are smaller than adults’ beds, but the length of the bed should be sufficient for children to use for at least the first three years.
The height of the bed should be on the same level or slightly lower than the adult’s bed after laying the mattress. The mother can see her baby when she sleeps on the bed, and can also communicate with the eyes anytime, anywhere.
For the safety of newborns, there should be a fence around the crib. The height of the railing should be proportional to the length of the bed. The longer the crib, the higher the height of the fence.
On both sides of the fence, there should be “sliding doors” that can be dragged upwards to facilitate the care of the newborn.
The “sliding door” of the fence should be sturdy and completely safe when closed to prevent children from falling into bed.
The railing of the fence is best to be embedded, and the corners of the crib should also be rounded to avoid hurting the newborn.
The width between the two railings should be appropriate to prevent the newborn’s head, hands, and feet from getting caught in the middle of the railing.
The bed of the newborn should be placed on the side of the rising sun and close to the mother’s bed, but not near the stove or radiator to avoid burns.
In order to avoid mosquito stings, mosquito nets can be put on a fixed bed on a small bed. Do not place the mosquito net directly on the small bed to avoid accidentally suffocating the mosquito net when it falls on the face of the newborn.
The bed of the newborn should be changed frequently to prevent the newborn’s eyes from fixedly looking in one direction, and strabismus may occur over time.
