Home safety basics for parents

  1. Cords from curtains, electrical appliances and exercise equipment are dangerous, so position cribs and playpens away from windows and keep cords tied up.
  2. Make sure the gap between the crib and the mattress is no more than 4cm, so your baby won’t get his head stuck.
  3. Avoid using tablecloths as a crawling baby could easily pull them off.
  4. Keep the bath sides clear from toiletries. Things such as small bars of soap can be a choking hazard.
  5. Put non-slip pads under rugs so a baby on the move won’t slide on them.
