Happy Holidays! In the words of Andy Williams, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” As you prepare for the holidays Safety 1st and Consumer Safety Expert, Julie Vallese, are here to share a few tips to help keep your little one safe from hidden hazards in the kitchen and beyond.
Tips to keep your child safe this holiday season
– Attending a holiday party? Foods like grapes or tomatoes left out on a low table can become choking hazards. Speak with your host to see if these can be put out of your child’s reach.
– Ask that your host not put lighted candles on a table cloth or anything else that a child could pull down.
– For infants, make sure your child is always buckled in their car seat, even when not in the car. You never know who will pick up a car seat with a sleeping baby and you don’t want to risk your child slipping out.
– As family and friends come and go from your house child safety gates may be left open. Always make sure you, a family member or a friend is always watching your child.
– Ensure that your stove has knob covers to protect kids from turning it on and off as you cook. As an added safety measure, try to use the back burners as much as possible.
– Opening and shutting the fridge as you make your holiday meal? A fridge lock makes it difficult for your child to open, but still convenient for mom or dad.
