Mum’s urging others not to set baby’s bedroom up like this.
This Mother’s post has gone viral after she took the opportunity to warn fellow parents about the set up of her babies bedroom. The post is actually quite shocking so I thought I’d share it with you because I know some of my fellow mother’s will find it useful.
Alison Johnson shared a photo of her two babies cribs which had been set up with a small gap between them. The post has received over 34,000 shares.
The post says: ‘I have a lot of friends that have twins or kids close in age that may have a similar set up, so I wanted to share something VERY scary that happened today. This morning I put Caleb down for his nap. Shortly after he started to cry. After a few minutes, I went in to check on him. He had climbed out of his crib and was stuck between his crib and Libby’s crib. His body fit through, but his head wouldn’t. He was using every ounce of energy he had to hold himself up by his little arms. If they had given out, he would’ve just been hanging there by his head.
What’s even more scary is that like many moms, I generally use nap time as an opportunity to shower. Had I done that today and checked on him after five minutes, he would have literally hung himself. When baby proofing, I never in a million years would have seen this as a potential danger. Please consider sharing this post in case someone you know may have a similar set up. It’s incredibly heartbreaking to think of what the outcome could have been today. I’m still totally shook up over it and don’t think the vision of him stuck there will ever leave my head.’
I know this is quite scary, but definitely worth sharing if you have any friends or family with babies, especially little twins.
Many parents have already commented on the post thanking Alison for her warning and spreading awareness to them.
