Protect Your Baby By Practicing Choking And Suffocation Safety
March 2, 2012
Preparing for a new baby into a home puts forth many challenges for fledgling fathers. Injuries happen but to lessen the severity, dads can begin practicing choking and suffocation safety early. Here are some handy tips to help fathers on this course.
- It's The Little Things - Keep small items out of reach. Anything that would fit in a cardboard roll of toilet paper or into your little one's able hands should be placed in areas where dads can monitor easily
- Check The Lids At The Door - Take the lids off of any toy boxes that your child could fit into. This includes boxes with lids that snap on or are hinged on. Put the lids in a safe place. Additionally, keep these boxes clear of small things such as accesories for dolls, toy cars and other such items.
- Paper, No Plastic - Keep all plastic bags away from your child. If your child likes the rustling noise plastic bags make, hand them a safer noisemaker.
Babies move fast as they learn how to control their movements. Along with heeding the suggested tips above, dads should also keep a watchful eye on their little ones at all times.
