Are stuffed animals baby safe? How do you clean them?

They can be safe depending on how they are made. Stuffed animals can get really dirty. Very loved stuffed animals are the worst of all. If you are going to get a very young child or baby a stuffed animal, get a baby safe one with stitched eyes or eyes that are very well anchored and won’t come off to be ingested. Test the eyes if they are a button type eyes, by pulling at them and twisting them to make sure they are safe. Also pick a stuffed animal that is fully washable and made from a smooth fabric that doesn’t have pieces that can be pulled off. Look in the baby departments of any store that carries baby clothing and you may find a selection of baby proof stuffed animals. Make sure you remove loose bows and decorator items from any stuffed animal that you give to a baby. Stuffed animals designed for babies are often less ornate without accessories or detachable parts. They are also often smaller for their little hands to be able to grip. A good quality stuffed animal for a baby is squeezable and easy to grip too. Just because a stuffed animal is sold in the baby section of a store though, does not necessarily mean it is baby safe. Some are sold as d�cor only. Others will specifically have a label that is marked baby safe. Be aware when you buy a stuffed animal for a baby. Don’t get one that is so big that a baby could smother against it if it is going in the bed with them. Mama Nono
