There’s always something to worry about if you’re a parent, but making sure your home is child-friendly is one stress you can wave goodbye to with our quick safety guide.
Here is a quick rundown of the potential risks of each area of the home, and what you can do to minimise the dangers:
Medicines should be kept at a stable temperature, therefore it is advisable to store them in a room other than the bathroom or kitchen, where temperatures tend to fluctuate.
Young children shouldn’t have access to the bathroom at all, unless you are present, so if you can install a latch at a suitable height then do. If not, follow these simple tips instead.
Use a thermometer to ensure that the room is kept a suitable temperature for your child – this is really important as babies can’t tell you when they’re too hot or too cold.
The kitchen is the most dangerous room in the house for young children, presenting all sorts of potential health and safety hazards, so follow these tips to minimise the dangers.
Please note, this article is intended as a guide only. Parents and carers should undertake all relevant checks themselves to guarantee the safety of their child.
