Safety Guidelines

Never refer to medicine as any kind of candy since children often swallow pills since they look like candy.
Just to be safe, teach your child never to eat anything without asking an adult first.
Donít leave children in the tub or shower .small children can drown in two inches of water within seconds.
Put the baby to sleep on his or her back in a crib with a flat firm mattress with no soft bedding underneath. Doing so reduces the risk of SID (Sudden Infant Death ) syndrome
Keep button batteries away from your child; they can cause intoxication with mercury and acid. Button batteries can be found in watches, small toys, computer games and other small gadgets
When running a bath turn the cold water on first and always test the water temperature with your elbow first before letting a child get into the bath or shower
Avoid using table cloth or table mats as they and everything on them can be pulled off the table.
Knives and sharp objects should be kept towards the back of drawer even if latches have been.
Always fit a safety gate at the top and bottom of stairs. Make sure balustrades are strong and do not have any footholds for climbing.
Keep plants away from children .Not only are some poisonous but leaves and dirt are choking hazards.
