Some are relatively minor issues such as sharp edges or protrusions to bump themselves on, to major life threatening problems such as a gate that the child could easily open, climbing footholds and gaps that can trap a head or limb.

The Number 1 Mistake Parents Make
Since I began selling playpens about 10 years ago the most common message I get is How Fast can I get It. Parents suddenly wake up one day and their gorgous cute child hyas turned in to a mobile mischeif make requiring constant watching every second of every minute. Without a playpen you need eyes in the back of your head.
The stress caused to new parents who dont have aplaypen to safely secure their baby is enormous Parents should plan ahead and order their baby playpen well ahead of the time they are likely to need it. Check Out all the various types of playpen available on the market and have it in the garage ready for when you need it.
Peace of Mind
A good baby playpen can bring peace of mind to busy mums and dads. If your child is staying with a Grandparent its almost essential. When your previously immobile child becomes, a fearless explorer grabbing on to anything that presents in its path a playpen can bring some peace of mind. Crawling babies have been known to pull TV sets down on themselves, or sustain injury when encountering all manner of other potentially dangerous household items.
Australian Standards for Playpens
Some parents would end up in the Loony Bin if they were not able to place their crawling child in a place of safety like a baby playpen. A parent needs to have eyes in the back of their head and be 100% alert to baby danger at all times. The answer for many is to purchase a baby-playpen however, in Australia there is currently no mandatory or voluntary standard for baby playpens so what do you need to know?
About a Baby Playpen What You Need to Know
Playpens come in many shapes and sizes: square, rectangular, hexagonal octagonal and lots more. They can be constructed from different types of timber (wood), metal, or plastic; some have mesh or fabric walls. Many are modular, so you can add extra or subtract panels to make the playpen to a size that will suit your room and circumstances. They can sometimes be used as a fence to screen off a section of the room, or to protect your toddler from a fireplace or other no go area.
