So it is important that the sides of the bed, when the baby is inside, are always raised. And they should have a distance from the mattress of 60 cm. The mattress must be rigid and have the same dimensions as the cot so that the baby cannot fall into the slots.

It is always good not to use the pillow and in winter cover the baby with various blankets and not with a duvet. Also when you put him in his bed it is good to put it in half and never too close to the railing because he could bang his head or get stuck. Another thing to keep in mind is when you put it down: avoid putting it on your stomach, but on the side or belly up.

In case he sleeps with you in the room, in your bed, place it on top of the covers and cover it with lighter covers. This prevents it from falling to the bottom of the bed under the covers.

Regarding the layette always privilege simple and not too complicated clothes that they can easily meet you in dressing and undressing the child.

Also it would be good to buy clothes made with natural fibers such as: cotton, hemp, linen, silk.

Consequently don’t dress the baby too much, this will not save him from any colds or fevers, on the contrary it could contribute to make them have them. Precisely for this you try to keep at home a temperature between 18 and 20 degrees, always circulating the air.

Finally, if you have pets at home, don’t worry too much about their reaction. First of all vaccinate them and keep them clean and then to avoid jealousies introduce the baby to the dog or cat so that they both get to know each other.

You will see that after a while they will become inseparable and then, in the growth of a child, pets greatly improve the quality of life as well as for adults. In fact, an animal at home can be an excellent example of life for the baby, especially in the moment of growth.
