Safety Measures for baby

Caring for young children is one of the biggest responsibilities you’ll ever have. You must protect yourself, as well as the children.

Here are some of the baby safety measures:

*Never underestimate what a small child can do in a split second to injure themselves or extinguish their own life.

*Use Safety Latches and Locks for cabinets and drawers in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas to help prevent poisonings and other injuries.

*Use Safety Gates to help prevent falls down stairs and to keep children away from dangerous areas.

*Use Smoke Detectors on every level of your home and near bedrooms to alert you to fires.

*Use Outlet Covers and Outlet Plates to help prevent electrocution.

*Use a Cordless Phone to make it easier to continuously watch young children, especially when they're in bathtubs, swimming pools, or other potentially dangerous areas.

*Use Door Stops and Door Holders to help prevent injuries to fingers and hands.
