Choosing the Right Baby Gear: Prioritizing Safety!

Your baby’s safety is paramount. The right gear creates a secure environment that fosters healthy development. Here’s how parents can make informed choices:

Look for Certifications

A lot of baby gear brands come with safety certifications that you need to look out for. Some of these safety certifications include EN Certifications like EN1888, which is a European standard that you might see on strollers, ASTM international standards for cribs and other gear, BIS standards etc.

Consequently, ensure that you are up to date with different standards of safety while purchasing any baby gear.

Material Matters

The right material plays a huge role in any baby gear’s safety and comfort. Choose breathable, hypoallergenic and non-toxic materials. Additionally, when it comes to baby travel gear like strollers, baby carriers and car seats, make sure that the material is cushioned. Avoid items with loose small parts that pose choking hazards.

Age and Size Appropriateness

Opt for gear designed for your baby’s specific age, weight, and developmental stage. A snug car seat fit is crucial, and a crib mattress shouldn’t leave any gaps around the edges.

Subsequently while choosing the car seat, it’s also important to know which car seat facing position is right for your child.

  • 0-2 years: Rear-facing car seat position
  • 2-5 years: Forward-facing car seat position

Jollee’s Guide to Safe and Smart Baby Gear

Baby Strollers & Prams: Stability is key. Look for a stroller with a wide base and a secure harness system like a 5-point safety harness. Consider your lifestyle and terrain when choosing between a lightweight umbrella stroller or a feature-packed travel system. Shop Baby Strollers and Prams on Jollee

Car Seats: This is non-negotiable! Car Seats reduce the risk of injury to infants by 71% in case of an accident. Explore Safety Certified & ISOFIX car seats from top brands on Jollee today!

Choose a rear-facing car seat position for optimal protection until your child reaches the height and weight limits, usually after 2 years of age. Afterwards, you can switch to a forward-facing position. Therefore, while choosing a car seat, make sure that it has a 3-point or 5-point safety harness, a cushioned backrest & headrest and side-impact protection.

Jollee has a variety of car seats with features like easy installation and comfortable padding.

Baby Cribs & Cots: Select a crib with slats close enough to prevent your baby’s head from getting stuck. Also, choose baby cribs that have smooth surfaces and rounded edges to further reduce the chances of any injury.

Furthermore, avoid using loose bedding, pillows, and stuffed animals in the crib to minimize the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Explore a wide range of Cribs & Cots on Jollee that prioritize comfort and safety.

Beyond the Basics: Safety for every age & stage

Baby Palna / Jhula: Ensure the swing is securely mounted and has a sturdy frame. Opt for a jhula with a comfortable seat and a secure harness to prevent falls.

Tricycles, Baby Cars, and Walkers: These provide entertainment and promote active play, but do require supervision.

Therefore, choose age-appropriate models with stable bases and avoid using them near stairs or uneven terrain.

Baby Bathtubs: Select a tub with a non-slip surface and a comfortable recline for newborns. Never leave your baby unattended in the bathtub, even for a moment.

You can start using a baby bathtub after the umbilical cord stump falls off.
