Preventing Injuries in Babies – 7 Ways

This month we are focusing on National Child Safety.  We will be hosting a Twitter Party next week with special guests @SafeKidsUSA  They are an amazing non-profit that provides so much education and information on keeping kids and babies safe!  Earlier this month they published a blog listing 7 Easy Ways to prevent injuries and keep your kids safe.  This post is chock full of information and video demos on how to install a car seat, secure televisions, prevent accidental choking or poisoning, consider your fire escape plan, avoid distractions when driving, and for the older child in sports, head injuries.

We love this organization and this post.  We are re-posting some of it here, and will link you back to the full article.

No one wants to think about accidents, especially a pregnant or new mom.  However, pausing to think through some of these topics, talking about them with your partner, and making some easy changes to your home and car can make a huge difference.  We thank Safe Kids for this info and for partnering with us this month on our September 15th Twitter Party:  #SafeBaby.

When it comes to safety for your children, you already know the basics: buckle up, wear a helmet, learn to swim, look both ways. Here are some lesser-known – but just as important – tips to help keep your family safe.

1. Tug on your kid’s car seat where the seat belt goes. If it moves more than 1” at the base, tighten it up. Need help with your child’s car seat?

2. Secure furniture and TVs. Mount flat screens and keep bulky-style TVs on a low and stable base.

3. Check smoke and CO alarms monthly.
