New study finds 9,500 ED visits related to cribs, playpens and bassinets each year in US

rs to the crib
  • Crib tents and mesh canopies are not safe to use over cribs. Children can become trapped or strangle in them if they try to get out
  • Avoid placing the crib near a window to prevent falls and possible strangulation from cords from window blinds or shades

  • Monitor your child's developmental milestones and make changes to the crib as needed.
    • Once your child can push up on his hands and knees or is 5 months old (whichever occurs first), remove all mobiles and hanging toys
    • When your child can pull herself up or stand, adjust the mattress to the lowest position. Having the crib sides at least 26 inches above the mattress can help prevent falls
    • Check the manufacturer's instructions to know when your child will outgrow the crib. This generally occurs when your child reaches 35 inches in height

  • If using a bassinet or playpen, make sure they have a sturdy, wide base and that your child meets all height and weight limits.

    This is the first nationally representative study to examine injuries to young children associated with cribs, playpens and bassinets that were treated in United States emergency departments. Data for this study were collected from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, which is operated by the CPSC.
