Your child’s safety is your responsibility. The following series aims at providing tips to help you keep your baby out of harm from various situations & harms.

Baby Choking or Strangulation Prevention

  • NEVER put strings or cords around your baby’s neck (such as to hold a pacifier) or near baby’s crib.
  • Be cautious of strings or buttons on clothing; make sure they are not in danger of choking your baby.
  • Secure cords on blinds and drapes out of reach to prevent accidental strangulation.
  • Put away small objects — even display items — that can cause injury or choking if swallowed.

Baby Feeding Safety

  • Never prop up your baby’s bottle and leave your baby unattended; your baby could choke. Do not put your baby to bed with a bottle.
  • Avoid giving your child raw carrots, unpeeled apples, nuts, hard candies, and other foods that present a choking hazard.
  • In a highchair, always use restraining straps that run around your child’s waist and between his legs to keep him from sliding out.
