Baby Safety

-Before you begin, have all supplies within arm's reach and in front of you.

-DO NOT leave a baby unattended for even a second. Baby bath seats and baby bathtubs are not a substitute for supervision. All warnings and manufacturer’s instructions should be strictly followed when using a baby bath seat. They are only bathing aids, not safety devices.

-If you need to leave the bathroom, take the baby with you. Do not rely on older children/siblings to watch the baby for you.

-DO NOT use a baby bath seat in a tub with a textured or non-skid bottom – the seat's suction cups may not stick. If the bath seat moves or tips while your child is in it, stop using it.

-Never leave a child unattended while filling the bathtub and always empty bath water immediately after use.

-Fill bath with no more than two inches of warm water. Test temperature with your elbow or a thermometer. Temperature should be between 90 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

-Consider placing a latch on the bathroom door to keep children out of the bathroom when unsupervised.

-Keep the toilet lid down to prevent access to the water. Consider using a toilet seat lock to prevent children from opening the lid.
 
 The following points are what every parent and caregiver should know:

General Water Safety

-Maintain constant supervision. Watch children around any water environment (pools, streams, ponds, lakes, bath tubs, hot tubs, toilets, buckets, sinks, coolers and fish tanks), no matter what skills your child has acquired and no matter how shallow the water.

-Don't rely on substitutes. The use of flotation devices and inflatable toys cannot replace parental/caregiver supervision. Such devices could suddenly shift position, lose air or slip out from underneath a child, leaving the child in a dangerous situation.

-Parents/caregivers should take a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course. Knowing these skills is important around the water and will expand your capabilities to provide care for your child. It can be a lifesaver when seconds count.

-Never leave a container with even a small amount of liquid unattended. When finished using a container, empty it immediately. Do not leave empty containers outside in the yard or around the house, where they may accumulate water and attract young children.

-Store containers where young children cannot reach them. Use safety latches on lower drawers and cabinet doors to ensure they cannot be opened by children.
