A child hammock is a lot of fun, but it's important that your child knows how to properly use the hammock-there are a few things you can teach your young hammock user to increase safety and enjoyment. Have your child inspect the hammock every day for frayed ropes or connections or other signs of wear. This teaches them to be mindful of safety and helps you keep tabs on the sturdiness of the child hammock. As you watch your child enter the hammock, make sure they sit right in the middle, which gives a more stable entry. Never overload a child hammock-if it is only rated for the weight of a single person, don't let two children use it at the same time.
