Always supervise a baby while they are playing in a playpen.
- Follow the manufacturer's instructions and recommendations regarding weight and age restrictions.
- Never leave a child in a playground with the side facing down; the baby can roll into the space between the mattress and the side slatted base and turn off
- Never use boxes with sharp edges or hinges that could pinch, scratch or cut your fingers.
- When adjusting the pen, make sure that the side legs in the position are fully closed. If the hips are not locked in place, a "V" shape can be created in which the baby can be attracted.
- Never put scarves, necklaces or ropes in the playpen or around the child's neck. These things can get caught on the playground and sofa.
- Remove mobiles and toy bars when the baby begins to push up on their hands and knees.
Some gates manufactured before 1990 have large V-shaped openings at the top or large openings in the sides and do not meet legal requirements. The openings in the gate should be small enough not to allow passage of your head or body.
- Choose a gate recommended for the child's age and suitable for the area of the house where it will be used.
- Install the security gates according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- Use a secure gate at the top of the stairs and a pressure gate at the bottom of the stairs and doors.
- After each closing, make sure the gate is secure.
- Do not use gates with openings through which children can climb through the gate.

Suspended Baby Jumpers
Children were injured by falling when the jumper was not properly fixed to the door frame, used in the wrong type of door frame, or when parts of the jumper broke.
- Keep an eye on the child wearing the sweater. If you have to leave the room for any reason, take the child with you.
- Look for a template that comes with well-written and detailed instructions. Do not use the product unless it can be repaired according to the instructions in the instructions. Keep them for future reference.
- Take down and store away the jumper when not in use.
- Adjust the jumper so that the baby's toes are touching the floor when they are not jumping.
- Follow all of the manufacturer's instructions when installing the jumper, including the guidelines for:
- age, weight and physical abilities of the baby.
- dimensions and strength of the door frame.
- Check all parts of the jumper regularly to be sure that it is secure.
Keep cosmetic products, such as nail polish remover, diaper creams, oral foods and perfumes, out of the reach of children. Some cosmetics can harm small children if swallowed.
- Keep powders such as talc and cornstarch away from the baby's face when they are reached to prevent inhalation, which can create breathing problems.
- Avoid excessive or prolonged use of bubble baths or bath oil. In case of rash, redness or itching, stop using the product and consult a doctor. Skin irritation and urinary tract infections can lead to the use of bath products.
- Use only cosmetics and other personal products that are suitable for your child's age. Adults should only use certain products, such as those containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), hair removal products (epilators, wax, etc.), hair dyes, and teeth whitening products.
