Children like to keep playing always. When they are babies, they are satisfied to play by themselves and when they get a little bit older, they start playing with other kids of their age. When they have crossed about 1 year and even before that, the baby can be put inside a playpen or a play yard that is made specifically for the child.

In the years gone by, this was a very great investment, but now with advanced technology, good playpens are available at a cheaper price. The play yard has to be very safe for the child if it has to keep the child from injuring itself. There are many safety features that you should look for in the play yard, as a parent. You can make a few more additions to the play yard to make it safer than what was present already.

The safety ideas are:

1. Cover sharp edges:

One of the most common reasons for children hurting themselves is the sharp edges that can be present in the play yard. Injuries can occur because of the open sharps present. The best safety feature that can be done by parents is to give a layer of extra padding with a soft material. This will prevent sharp injuries that usually have a potential of causing bleeding injuries.

2. Close all openings:

The parents should make sure that the area of the play yard are closed so that the child does not move out of the play area. When the child moves out, it is exposed to many other risks.

3. Watch:

When the child is in the play yard, one of the parents or a baby sitter should keep watch over the child. This is because when the child is left unattended, it can lead to various problems. Any child should always be attended. It just takes one minute for a child to get injured in any incident. Sometimes accidents can even be fatal. So one person should always keep watch over the child at all times.

4. Ropes and clothes:

Make sure that there are no ropes or plastic material inside the play yard. Ropes can lead to strangulation when a child tries to play with the rope by putting it around the neck. Similarly, the child should not be allowed access to any plastic, as the plastic materials can be toxic at times. Even otherwise, it can cause asphyxiation a times unless the plastic is of very good quality.

5. Area for play:

Make sure that the area of play for the child is adequate. If it is a very small area, the child will try to climb out of the play area and it can lead to injuries.

There are many readymade play yards available. The parents can also custom build a play yard for their child. This will help to make the child be more creative and also help the parents to keep the child happy and playing. Adequate toys and other materials can be kept in the area inside the play yard for the child to have a nice time. These safety features mentioned above should be taken care of by parents to help the child have a safe play area.
