✗ Never conceal when the baby has had a hard fall, suffered a hard blow to the head or something strange happened during the day that could threaten her safety – even if it does not appear as if anything serious happened to her.
✗ Never leave the baby unattended on a high surface, even if she can’t roll over yet.
✓ If you walk down the stairs with Baby in your arms, make sure that you have one hand free to hold the rail.
✗ Never ever leave a baby alone in a bath or any amount of water – not even for a few seconds.
✗ Don’t leave buckets of water standing around when you’ve washed the floor – a baby can fall forward and drown in it.
✗ Never leave a baby alone in a bathroom or toilet – they can fall into the toilet and drown.
✓ Remember that babies stick everything into their mouth, so be on the look-out for small objects Baby might be able to lay hands on.
✓ Make sure there are no long ropes or electric cables that can strangle Baby or plastic bags that can suffocate her.
✓ If you’re busy cleaning house, make sure the cleaning agents are always out of reach of little hands.
✓ All medicines must at all times be locked away in a cupboard out of reach of children. Even mouthwash and perfume are poisonous.
✗ Never open the door for strangers.
✓ Keep important numbers next to the phone for emergencies.
