Keeping Cats Out Of The Baby Crib

Many people, especially younger people have never heard about keeping cats out of the baby's bedroom or out of the crib because of the potential dangers that can result. I was very surprised to hear that my son and daughter-in-law had never heard anything about this danger.

Cats are drawn to the smell of breast milk or formula and the warmth of the baby and will enter the sleeping space of the baby to find the smell of the breast milk or formula. The cats lay on top of the baby while it is sleeping and can smother the baby. This is not a rare occurrence. It has been documented many times in history. Cats do not know they are doing anything wrong, they are just curious and loving.

If you have a cat that likes to sleep on you, they will more than likely want to sleep on the baby as well. This can be a very dangerous situation. It is always best to keep the infant in a room with the door closed while listening to a baby monitor to be safe. Your cat might not want to be around the baby, but some will. The chance you take is not worth it.

Once the baby starts growing and can move around by itself, then the cats will not be a worry, but until then, you must keep the cats away from the sleeping baby.
