Bathtime Safety – Seven Life Saving Tips
# Always have a bath mat or appliqués on the bathtub floor.
# Cover the spout with a soft sponge-like cover to prevent burns from hot faucets and injuries caused by bumping into them.
# Teach your child never to touch the spigots to avoid accidentally turning on the water.
# Keep all adult bathing items, shampoo, shaving cream razors etc. out of your child’s reach
# Never have any appliances, such as a hair dryer, radio, curling iron, razor, or the like plugged in when your child is in the bathroom.
# Clean up any spills and dry your child’s feet immediately after a bath to prevent slips.
# Never leave a child under the age of 6 unattended in the tub. Don’t ever make older siblings who are bathing with younger ones responsible for their little sisters and brothers.
