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.
