People Magazine‘s photo spread of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony‘s twins Max and Emme revealed their lush and luxurious nursery that included two Bratt Decor Casablanca Cribs in slate, Art 4 Kids’ Madison Bedding and an ivory Max Daniel blanket. However, Parents Magazine is up in arms because they are concerned about what they say are major safety hazards in the room:
- The pillows, stuffed animals and blankets in the cribs and draped canopies are suffocation hazards
- Bows tied onto the crib slats are choking hazards.
- The open window doesn’t have a window guard.
While it’s true that these concerns are valid, I think the editors of Parents are jumping the gun. As we learned with Brooke Burke‘s nursery for daughter Heaven Rain and Baby Boy Charvet, the room was styled and staged for a beautiful photo shoot. Most likely, all hazards would be removed before the babies are put in the cribs. Also, Jennifer and Marc acknowledged in their interview that the babies often sleep with them.
What do you think? Did Parents magazine overreact or are their concerns valid?
