What precautions should be taken when using a playpen?

A playpen is used to keep the baby safe and provide a controlled space for movement. Here are some precautions you should take when using a playpen:

Choose the right playpen: Make sure you choose a playpen that meets safety standards. The playpen should be strong, stable, and have no sharp edges or protruding parts that could cause injury to the baby. Additionally, the gaps in the fence should be small enough to prevent the baby's head or body from passing through.

Safe installation: It is important to install your playpen correctly. Install according to the manufacturer's instructions or installation guide, and make sure the playpen is securely fastened to the floor or wall to prevent it from being pushed over or moved by the baby.

Monitor babies: Babies should always be supervised by an adult when in a playpen. A playpen does not mean that the baby can be left alone in the playpen, but it does provide a safe environment, but someone needs to keep an eye on the baby's activities.

Regular Inspections: Regularly check the stability and safety of your fence. Make sure there are no loose parts or damaged sections of the fence, and feel free to repair or replace those that need repair.

Avoid placing dangerous items: In the enclosure, avoid placing dangerous items that babies can reach, such as small toys, cables, power sockets, etc. Make sure there is no pull-over furniture or other unstable objects around the fence.

Prevent fence climbing: Some babies may try to climb or use items on the fence to climb over the fence. Make sure the playpen does not have horizontal bars or supports that the baby can use as a climbing support. Also, place the playpen away from other furniture and surfaces to reduce the chance of climbing.

Not for long-term use: The playpen should not be used as a substitute for long-term use, babies need enough time to explore and develop in free activities. Use of playpens should be temporary and for reasonable periods of time and need.
