Nearly every child hammock warns parents not to let a child enter the hammock feet first. The major safety issue concerns the shifting center of gravity. It's very easy for someone, adult or child, to fall and injure themselves by entering feet first. For this reason, children should always be supervised getting in and out of a hammock. Kids get caught up in whatever play they are engaged in at the time and often forget basic safety rules. This is how tiny fingers get pinched in doors, and also how children can fall out of a child hammock without proper supervision. Make the hammock a parent-and-child moment every time it is used-this will reduce the temptation to get in and out unobserved.
