Parents know how important it is to correctly baby-proof your nursery to avoid tragic consequences, and as parents we think we’ve done the best we can.
Alison Johnson, mum to 18 month old twins Caleb and Lilly discovered all too tragically just what happens when you but the two cots them up back to back.
Like so many parents of multiples before her, she keeps her kids in the same room, with their cots side by side. What she thought was a safe and secure nursery setup, ended her in a very dangerous and frightening situation, which she shared on her Facebook page.
“This morning I put Caleb down for his nap,” she said. “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.”
“When baby proofing, I never in a million years would have seen this as a potential danger,” she explains. “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.”
