A baby play yard is one of the best things your baby can have for convenient play. It is quite comfortable for the baby to play in the play yard, and the fact that it is usually quite reasonably priced and is portable too, makes it quite a preferred baby accessory among parents as well. In fact it is not rare to find parents opting for well designed baby play yard in place of the tradition baby crib. However, to make sure you get the best out of your baby play yard, here are some safety suggestions to follow:

1. The baby play yard should not have any sharp edges. This factor should be ensured not only at the time of purchasing the baby play yard, but also from time to time, once your baby starts using it. Sharp edges can be quite dangerous.

2. It is also necessary to keep making occasional thorough checks of the baby play yard mesh fabric. Make sure that it stays free of any excessive wear or tear. In case wear or tear does happen, mend it immediately, or if required get it replaced. You don't want the baby to tear it down even more or start fussing with it, do you?! Maintaining the baby play yard well is a good practice.

3. If you have opted for a play yard that has been made out of wood, make sure that the wooden slates of the play yard are not more than 3/8 to 2 inches apart. Slates that are too wide apart allow the baby to slip out of the yard easily, or sometimes get the baby trapped as they make an attempt to slip out.

4. Though you would obviously like to fill up the yard with toys, avoid placing of too many padded objects that can be easily stacked. This helps to ensure that the baby does not stack up the toys to climb up on them to escape from the play yard. The worst case scenario is when the baby makes and attempt to climb out, and falls down instead, getting hurt.

5. Avoid the use of hanging strings. They pose the risk of causing suffocation to the babies, especially the much younger ones. Even if they do not really cause suffocation, they can sometimes be extremely irritating for the baby.

6. Generally it is better to avoid the use of loose bedding in the play yard as far as possible. They are messy and cause unnecessary trouble to the babies during their play time. Also, in the case of younger babies, loose bedding can even cause suffocation.

Keep the baby play yard clean and well maintained if you do not want the baby to start developing health hazards. Also it is important to bear in mind that no matter how careful you may have been while purchasing and maintaining the play yard, the baby should never be left unattended. You never really know what the baby might be up to, and what new tricks they might decide to try next. Keeping a close vigilance on them during their play time is a must.
