BABY SAFETY CHECKLIST

Bedroom:

Put your baby to sleep on her back in a crib with a firm, flat mattress and no soft bedding underneath her.
Make sure your baby's crib is sturdy and has no loose or missing hardware.
Never place your baby's crib or furniture near window blind or curtain cords.
Make sure all power outlets are covered or plugged with the safety plugs.

Bathroom:

Keep medicines and cleaning products in containers with safety caps and locked away from children.
Always check bath water temperature with your wrist or elbow before putting your baby in to bathe.
Never, ever, leave your child alone in the bathtub or near any water even for a second.

Kitchen:

Don't leave your baby alone in a highchair; always use all safety straps.
Use your stove's back burners and keep pot handles turned to the back of the stove.
Lock household cleaning products, knives, matches, and plastic bags away from children.
Lock other cabinets that you donít want the baby getting into since babies love opening up cabinets.

Living areas:

Install smoke detectors on each floor of your home, especially near sleeping areas; change the batteries each year.
Use safety gates to block stairways and safety plugs to cover electrical outlets.
Keep all small objects, including tiny toys and balloons and plastic, away from young children.
Keep doors to the outside locked and closed at all times since babies love to explore.
