Safety for baby should be an on going issue. Of course it is, just sometimes we need to have reminders.
The Department of Motor Vehicles, has a question to remind us. What is the correct way to place an infant seat in your vehicle? Some will disagree that such a question should be asked on a test when not all drivers have or ride with a child in their vehicle. That's okay. Safety for babies aren't only a consideration for the actual biological parent, it is an issue we all need to consider.
Safety for baby is an endless consideration as baby becomes more physically active.
Placing baby on a changing table- make sure you are right there, they can flip and slide without a moments thought.
When baby is in the bath it is important to give him or her your full attention- forget the cell phone, or any phone for that matter. Baby's safety is your life for many years to come.
Don't fret- if you are pregnant, early preparation for baby is the way to go. If baby is already here - get moving, get baby safe.
Watching what you do while pregnant is the first step to a healthy baby. Proper nutrition for baby's growth is a great beginning. Talk with your doctor. Make sure you are getting the appropriate nutrients. You'll feel better,too.
Taking care of you while pregnant and after baby will help you to care for baby.
Care for baby's safety includes mental and physical strength on the part of baby's caregivers.
New studies show it can be best for baby to "cry it out." Sometimes that can be hard to do, listening to sweet baby's shrilling cries.
If you need a time out- take it. When you are tired and lacking time for self a crying baby can add a lot of stress.
Have you heard of Shaken Baby Syndrome? People who lose it under stress and lack knowledge on baby safety, may think shaking baby, may shake him or her to stop the tears, rather shaking baby can cause brain damage that can affect baby through life.
Baby safety starts within mom, beginning with early development within the womb. Don't smoke, drink or take any drugs without consulting with your doctor first.
As baby enters the world, Dad, grandma, other care givers enter the picture.
As baby matures into the toddler phase, the home environment can become a danger zone. Electrical outlets need to be covered. Dangerous items that can be ingested need to be kept out of baby's reach. Locks for cupboards might make it a little harder to get out items when needed, but will help keep baby safe.
Baby gates, provide protection from stairs and others dangerous areas such as the kitchen when you are cooking.
Be thankful your child is healthy. Keep him of her that way by providing a safe protective world, where exploration can help develop their need to learn and experience.
