7 step guide
1. Baby’s movements can cause damage. Walkers and other movement toys can cause your child to end up in the hospital if unattended.
2. The bathroom is a fun place to bond with your baby. Bath time is always a sweet time, but make sure you have locks on all cabinets and other places they can open.
3. Baby choking hazards such as cords and small toys can cause serious damage. This one is very preventable by making sure toys are age appropriate and putting up blind and electrical cords.
