Home Safety Tips for Parents
Smoke from a fire can kill very quickly. Sleep with bedroom doors closed at night to help keep smoke out and increase the amount of time you have to get yourself and your children out if you have a fire.
Secure purses out of children’s reach. They love to play with Mommy’s things. Some of Mommy’s things can be very dangerous such as medications, nail files, pens, cosmetics and small objects.
Use the sink when mopping floors. Buckets of water left unattended even for a few moments present a potential drowning hazard for babies and toddlers.
Keep high chairs a safe distance from tables and walls so that baby won’t be able to use them to push off with legs and arms and possibly push over the high chair.
Do a monthly check of your home. Check each room. If your child isn’t allowed in the room, such as a laundry room, make sure it is secured. Otherwise, check small or breakable objects and put them away. Check all furniture and lamps for stability. Make sure any safety devices you have installed are working adequately. Be sure to check down on the child’s level.
Regarding baby’s safe sleep:
Don’t place a baby to sleep in an adult bed. The baby could become entrapped between the bed & wall, or in headboards, footboards, bed frames. Babies could also fall or suffocate in soft bedding.
Place babies to sleep on their backs in a crib that meets current safety standards and has a firm, tight-fitting mattress. If you use a portable crib or playpen, make sure it meets current safety standards. Use only the mattress or pad provided by the manufacturer.
Babies should be placed to sleep on their backs, not their stomachs. According to the Back to Sleep Campaign, “Babies sleeping on their stomachs seem to be more likely to succumb to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).”
Don’t place a baby to sleep on soft bedding. The baby could suffocate. Do not use soft bedding such as pillows and thick quilts and comforters for infants under 12 months old. Crib sheets should fit securely.
