Becoming parents is not an easy job since you need to be constantly on the alert about your child’s well-being. Try as much as you can, you cannot keep up with them all the time, thanks to the bundle of the curiosity and energy they come with.
Here’s a look at some useful tips to ensure the safety of your child:
Experts say that the baby’s neck is too weak and delicate to support the weight of their head. When they are shaken even playfully, it can cause injury or death. Babies under the age of 6 months are most vulnerable, but it is better if you take care of it till your baby is of 2 years. The infant should be made to sleep on their back for reducing any minor risks even. Remove toys and other objects from crib to avoid suffocation.
As a toddler, the child`s world grows bigger and they are looking to explore everything around the house. Ask the child care provider for ways and tips on child-proofing the house. You can put the corner guards, roof railings, childproof locks on cabinets and safety covers on the electrical outlets. Keep small items and toys away from the reach of kids for avoiding choking hazard as well as learn Infant CPR and Heimlich manoeuvre for preventing choking and breathlessness. A trained and professional nanny knows these practices and will be able to guide you.
Pre-school and Older Children
Teach your children how to dial the emergency number along with making them learn how to cross the roads. Explain them the safety precautions and why need to take care of these, and most importantly teach them how to differentiate between a good and bad touch. Ask them to stay away from strangers and tell them how to deal with the accidents of earthquake or fire. First Aid training, contact number of Ambulance and Fire Brigade services along with contact details of your physician should always be shared with them.
