Our Child Safety Guide is a new, fresh alternative Guide about Child Safety.
We have broken important child safety topics in our Child Safety Guide into age specific categories for your convenience.
Infant Child Safety Guide
Our infant child safety guide focuses on what to do before you give birth and in the first six months of bringing your infant home. Purchase a new infant car seat, a Babysense V infant movement monitor available on our child safety guide products page, and basic safety supplies like an infant thermometer. Visit your pediatrician before you give birth so you are comfortable with them and get the recommended tests and shot schedule. Our child safety guide recommends you also visit the hospital where you plan to give birth and ask questions per our child safety guide on what will happen to you and your child before and after the birth. Our child safety guide recommends you ask what tests will be run on your newborn and whether you will accompany them. For male infants, our child safety guide recommends asking questions about circumcision.
Toddler Child Safety Guide
Before your baby begins to crawl, our child safety guide recommends preparing your home, yourself, and other caregivers of your child for their new mobility. Babies will try to put everythign in their mouth, so our child safety guide recommends you pay particular attention to the floor. Simple things like a dropped pill or paperclip can be a serious hazard if your baby finds it first and puts it in his mouth.
Preschooler Child Safety Guide
Before your baby walks, you again are faced with new challenges to keep him safe. As babies learn to walk they are unsteady so falls are likley. Protect your baby from serious falls by covering corners on low tables, fire place bases and other places your baby may reach for and fall into. Babies like to steady themselves on furniture so you need to look around your furniture for things your baby could fall into if he lost his balance. Do not let your baby attempt to walk in the kitchen or other areas of your home that have tile, or other hard surfaces.
