The Definitive Guide to Child Safety During Child Safety Week

This week marks the celebration of Child Safety Week, where we focus on ensuring the safety and well-being of your little one in various situations. We'll discuss essential tips and products to help you keep your child safe and secure, whether at home or on the go.

In this comprehensive guide, we'll cover a range of child safety topics, including:

Car Seats

Car journeys can be daunting for parents due to various risks on the road. Choosing a reliable, well-tested car seat is crucial to safeguard your precious passenger. 

Rear-facing seats are recommended for their safety benefits, significantly reducing neck strain in the event of a crash. Brands like Cybex advocate for extended rear-facing options, promoting safer travel for children up to seven years old. Consider the Cybex Anoris T2 with built-in airbag protection, designed for children from 15 months to seven years.


Ensuring a secure highchair setup involves using a sturdy design with a five-point harness to keep your child safely seated during meals. Products like the Kinderkraft Highchair offer comprehensive safety features for growing infants.

Safety Around the Home

From sharp corners to steep stairs, your home presents numerous hazards that require baby-proofing. Products like stair gates from For Your Little One are essential for restricting access to dangerous areas, and ensuring a safe environment.

Sun Safety

Protecting your child from harmful UV rays is critical, especially during outdoor activities. Baby sunglasses and sun hats, such as those from Babiators, offer stylish protection with 100% UV coverage.

Sleep Safety

Creating a safe sleeping environment is vital for your child's well-being. Ensure the crib is clear of blankets and pillows, maintain a suitable room temperature, and position your baby on their back. Products like the Glow Dreaming air purifier help maintain clean air for a restful sleep.

Here are five key considerations when preparing your baby for sleep:

  1. Ensure the sleeping environment is safe: Remove all blankets, pillows, and soft toys from the crib to prevent suffocation hazards. If using a swaddle, ensure it is securely wrapped to keep your baby's head uncovered.
  2. Maintain the right room temperature: Ensure the room is neither too hot nor too cold. A comfortable temperature range for babies is typically between 68-72°F (20-22°C).
  3. Position your baby correctly: Always place your baby on their back near the base of the crib. This position reduces the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
  4. Dress your baby appropriately: Choose clothing suitable for the room temperature and season. Overheating can be as dangerous as being too cold, so dress your baby in layers that can be easily adjusted.
  5. Consider air quality: Clean air is essential for your baby's health. Using an air purifier or humidifier, such as the one offered by Glow Dreaming, can help maintain optimal air quality in the nursery.

By addressing these five factors, you can create a safe and comfortable sleep environment for your baby, promoting restful sleep and peace of mind for you as a parent.
