Children are also at risk with sharp edges which can cause injury if they poke themselves on any part of the play yard while moving around inside. The top surface should be constantly monitored to ensure that no items have been added that may lead to death by strangulation due to small parts being inserted into specific openings such as ventilation holes.

Once ready, press down firmly in all four corners making sure not to catch your finger between the mattress pad and frame which could result in pain or even worse injuries like broken fingers!

This will reduce the risk of suffocation but allow enough space for airflow through the fabric so that there isn’t a buildup of perspiration during warmer nights when you may need more covers than usual anyway.
It also ensures that your infant won’t kick off all of their covers in the middle of the night, which can cause them to become cold and uncomfortable.
