Always remember

Buckle your baby into a car safety seat before you start the car. Keep the
seat facing backward until your baby is one year old and weighs at least 20 nds. The back seat is the safest place for babies and children.

Stay with your baby when he is playing near or in water. Never leave your baby
alone in a bath or a pool. Babies can drown in just a few inches of water.

Never, ever shake your baby.

Keep your baby away from things that could burn him. Don’t eat, drink,
smoke or carry anything hot while holding him.

Put your baby to sleep on his back unless your doctor has told you to do
otherwise. Insist that others who care for your baby do the same.

Serve healthy foods. Avoid sweetened, salty or fatty ones.

Lock up guns, alcohol, drugs and chemicals such as cleaning solutions.
These can kill your baby.

Put away knives, matches and other items that can hurt your baby. Put
them in a place your exploring baby can’t reach or open.
