How can I make the house safe for my baby?

Postnatal, Your questions

Is it normal that I hear about all sorts of things to avoid to make sure my baby is safe, say in their bed? I don’t know what to believe because the information I hear is not always the same. Can you tell me what I should be careful of in general? It’s my first baby and I really have a lot to think about…

Thanks, Sonia


Sonia, the arrival of a baby leads to many questions on a range of topics. Your baby’s safety is essential, and you are right to look for information about adapting your home for when the baby arrives. A safe home means fewer worries about potential dangers. Please read my article about how to prevent emergency situations with a baby.
