Never place your baby's crib or furniture near window blind or curtain cords. This will prevent babies from strangling on the loop of the cord. To prevent burns, check bath water temperature with your wrist or elbow before putting your baby into the bath. Be sure to use safety straps in strollers and baby swings. Use your stove's back burners and keep pot handles turned to the back of the stove. Keep toddlers away from tablecloths, so they can't pull down hot foods or liquids on themselves.
