Parents issue a warning about a dangerous detail in this baby’s nursery – but can you spot what it is?
- Parents voiced concern after a mum shared a photo of her baby’s nursery online
- The image shows a large canvas painting hanging above the cot
- Worried viewers warned the child could pull the artwork on top on themselves
- Each year 150 Australian kids under 14 are killed by unintentional injuries
Parents have issued a warning about the danger of hanging artwork near cots after a mother shared a photo of her daughter’s nursery online.
The image posted to the Australian Facebook group, Kmart Home Decor and Hacks, shows a neatly decorated room with white furniture, a grey rug and a large floral canvas hanging above a cot.
Many were quick to point out the child could easily pull the painting down on top of herself once she grows older.
‘I don’t want to be a negative Nancy, but I highly recommend you move that picture to a different wall. That’s just a disaster waiting to happen,’ one woman wrote.

Another added: ‘It looks absolutely stunning but be careful with the picture hanging above bub’s cot.’
A third said ‘having a bare wall is better than a smothered baby’.
Each year, 150 Australian children under 14 years of age are killed and more than 68,000 hospitalised as a result of unintentional injuries including accidents involving household items, according to KId Safe Australia.
The most common cause of childhood injury include falls from furniture such as cots and changing tables, and large fixtures like bookcases and televisions crashing down on top of kids.

The mother who posted the nursery photo hit back at critics, saying: ‘I am a parent myself already too and will always ensure my children’s safety is at the forefront.’
She continued: ‘She won’t be in there to start and will need to make adjustments as needed to keep it a safe space for her.’
And despite the criticism, some simply raved about the style of her little girl’s room.
‘Prettiest nursery I’ve ever seen,’ one woman replied.
