Only online! Dr. Ari Brown's Top 14 Baby Safety Tips
"Remember, children start to explore their world as a natural part of their development," Dr. Ari says. "Make their world safer so they can accomplish their goals:
1 - Safety gates need to be at the top and bottom of the stairs. The best and safest option is to permanently install gates (instead of using pressure gates).
2 - Electrical outlets need to have plastic safety covers.
3 - Get down on the floor and look at the world through your child’s eyes. Electrical cords and telephone cords need to be moved behind furniture.
4 - Toxic cleaning products in lower cabinets need to be moved.
5 - Cabinet locks on cabinets with knives, glass containers, and china.
6 - Coffee tables and fireplace hearths with corners need safety bumpers.
7 - Anchor bookshelves to the wall.
8 - Get toilet lid locks so your baby cannot fall in.
9 - Set your hot water heater to 120 degrees or less.
10 - Get cord shorteners or wall brackets to avoid dangling drapery cords.
11 - Remove any toys hanging over the crib by the time your baby is five months old.
12 - Keep medicine out of reach. Be especially watchful of grandparents who come to visit. They are more likely to a) be taking a medication and b) be leaving it out on a bathroom counter.
13 - If you drop something, pick it up. Otherwise, your baby will do it for you and stick it into his mouth.
14 - If you are a gun owner, lock ‘em up. Guns should never be accessible to children.
