From toxic products to general safety hazards–one of the most dangerous places for babies can be their nursery. The Consumer Product Safety Commission declared September to be National Baby Safety Month in order to raise awareness about this issue. Just because a product has been tested and found to be safe does not mean that it is attractive for parents or complements the room. It’s possible, fortunately, to strike a balance between safety and style. Here are eleven must-haves every nursery needs for a more secure, less toxic, and far more stylish space.

The neutral aesthetic is sleek which keeps play spaces clutter-free.
