Easy access: Most hardware-mounted gates swing open, but some pressure-mounted gates don`t (usually the basic models). If you need to move a gate a dozen times a day, you might be tempted to ditch it altogether. Slats no more than 3 inches apart: If the gate has vertical slats, Consumer Reports recommends that they be no more than 3 inches apart. A child`s head could get trapped in a larger gap, leading to strangulation. Fit: Most gates will block an average doorway. If you have a larger opening or area to protect, get a gate that stretches farther or has interlocking sections to encircle a bigger hazard. Safety standards: If the baby gate you're considering doesn't have a Juvenile Products Manufacturing Association certification seal on the packaging, keep shopping. Only models with this seal are guaranteed to meet voluntary safety standards for strength of materials, security of the latch, size of the bar or slat openings, and more. Don′t rely on the manufacturer′s name alone, because a company might not certify every product.
Rocking chairs have been a nursery essential for generations because babies find the back-and-forth motion soothing and sleep-inducing. They’re also a comfortable place to cuddle, feed, and read to a child. Today’s rockers have plenty of padding and often come with an ottoman for resting your feet. Some super-stylish versions look more like a cushy living-room chair. Comfort: Your rocker should offer plenty of back and head support, give you room to change position easily, and be the right size for your body. You′ll want your feet to reach the floor at an angle that feels good. Pockets to hold baby gear like burp cloths are in handy, and can hold your phone, TV remote, or magazines down the road. Wide padded armrests: Your arms will need plenty of support as you hold your child or it will get uncomfortable. If you′ll be using a nursing pillow, check that it comfortably fits over or next to the armrests (consider bringing yours to the store for a test-drive).
