Soft Snacks Only
Harder foods present a choking hazard for babies - make sure their food is soft and easy to swallow. You should cut food into small, thin pieces.
Medicine Isn’t a Spoonful of Sugar
Beware of teaching children that medicine is candy, as this could lead to them taking your medicine when you aren’t around.
Don’t Toss the Baby
Shaking a baby or tossing him in the air can cause blindness or brain damage.
Watch for Broken Toys
Even baby-safe toys can present a hazard if broken. Be on the lookout for any of your child’s toys that have been damaged or come apart - make sure all pieces/toys are larger than the child’s mouth.
Baby Gates Everywhere!
Baby gates can be heavily employed to keep babies away from the many things that pose hazards to them - drawers with sharp objects, rooms with open electrical sockets, pools, and more.
Pets are very adorable and cute
But they always come with both fangs and claws. Therefore, do not leave a baby alone with pets.
Keep household cleaning products locked up
Keep toxic substances, chemicals, medicine, or pills in cabinets, drawers, out of reach. Use magnetic locks or other child safety locks so that your toddler can't access them.
NEVER leave your child alone in the bathroom
Even for a few seconds, always watch them. Check bath water temperature by hand or bath thermometer before putting the baby in.
