Cribs We Dream About Aren't Always Safe

Dr. Rachel Moon’s study on parental beliefs is really enlightening for educators who are trying to make parents aware of the safest sleep environment for baby.

Our babies need to sleep on a soft cloud.  Where did this belief come from?  In the last 20 years, we have introduced more and more soft fluffy items into our infants world.  In an effort to make that world cute and inviting for our baby’s, we have forgotten that most basic tenet – keep them safe.

I blame product manufacturers and magazines.  For women, after we’ve finished dreaming about our wedding, we start dreaming about what our babies room will look like.  We pour through catalogs and wander through the baby section of stores dreaming and imagining how our precious dream baby will look.

The realities are much harsher.  The crib is the one place that baby spends a lot of unsupervised time.  It must be the safest space in your home to place a baby and leave here unattended.  Soft + Comfortable does not equal safe.
