Health Tip: Make Sure Baby's Crib Sheets Fit
Baby shouldn't be able to pull them off the mattress

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Your baby's safety begins in the crib, and among a parent's easiest chores is to make sure the crib sheets fit properly.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission offers this advice:

  • Crib sheets should always fit snugly on the mattress.
  • Crib sheets should overlap on the mattress corners, so the sheets cannot be pulled off by baby.
  • Do not use an or adult-size sheet on a crib mattress. Doing so poses an entanglement hazard.
  • Place baby on his or her back. Make sure the crib meets government safety standards, and that the mattress fits snugly in the crib.
  • Do not place any sheepskins, blankets, comforters or pillows in baby's crib.
