Your Baby & Toddler - - Health Notebook -

Model the fol­low­ing be­hav­iour and teach your chil­dren to do the same: • Don’t let an­i­mals lick you in the face, and dis­cour­age lick­ing else­where on the body too. • Al­ways wash your hands thor­oughly af­ter a stroking and play­ing ses­sion with your pets. • Pick up pet poo in the gar­den ev­ery day, us­ing a poop scoop or plas­tic bag, and then wash hands too. • If your baby is mo­bile, make sure your pet’s food and wa­ter is kept some­where your child can’t get to it, for ex­am­ple in a closed scullery or stoep.
