How to keep babies & toddlers gear clean & hygienic

 

Buggies & Strollers

 
  • Keeping your buggy or stroller clean will help maintain its life expectancy. Buggy or stroller liners are very useful for this and can be removed and washed when required.
 
  • Refer to the instruction manual when it comes to cleaning the buggy or stroller fabric and other attachments.
 

Car Seats

 
  • Your baby's or toddler's car seat can accumulate a fair amount of dirt from dust, spills and crumbs.
 
  • Try to clean the car seat at least once a month or more often if necessary.
 
  • Again refer to the manual with regards to the best way to clean the car seat.
 

Feeding Equipment & Highchairs

 
  • The best thing for keeping your baby's or toddler's highchair clean and sanitized is to use a gentle detergent with a warm cloth.
 

Mattresses

 
  • Turn your baby's or toddler's mattress over and rotate weekly if possible. This helps maintain the insides and ensures that damp and moisture are not trapped.
 
  • Also try and air the mattress in sunlight whenever possible to help stop the build up of bacteria.
 
  • Use on a slatted or aerated base if you can and do not use the mattress directly on the floor.
