A baby is something considered as God-given. Some fret without having them, when others are happy but are sometimes really tired taking care of the infants. Fatigue at times can lead to carelessness or forgetfulness, which in turn can have devastating effects on a family where little children are concerned.
Consider the activity
Think about the activity your kid is doing at agiven time. It is estimated that almost 6000 children die per year in household accidents. Sometimes, places we think are safe, are not safe at all. People we think are Ok, can be really bad ones. So, make sure you have a situation under control by setting up all relevant and required safety features such as alarms, blinds North Brisbane, fences etc. You may assume that when the baby is sleeping there is nothing much to worry about, however, be very careful as unintentional suffocating has found out to be the leading cause of accidental death for children under 1 year. Close to one third of this occurs while the baby is in bed.
Prevent accidents at…
Kids are unpredictable. Parents find it surprising to hear that some of the factors that are so dangerous so as to kill a baby, even are pertinent when it comes to toddlers and infants. But you must be aware of things such as Batteries, tricycles or bicycles, boating or playing with boats and ships in water – even a small stream or a drain, possible situations where burns and scalding can happen, car seats, strangulation and choking hazards – take care of the toys you give them, places where they can fall from, fire threats, getting ready to start and drive a vehicle, adults using guns, in and around vehicles, adult medication, in the playground, possible threats by poisoning and last but not least, school playground, yard and bus.
Importance of safety for kids
It is heartbreaking to see so many children die of accidents, especially as they can be very easily prevented. It is just a matter of taking precautions by putting up prowler proof Brisbane doors and/ or windows, removing stuffed animals from the bed, not using the tub to bathe really small children and so on. How can a parent live with a baby passing away in front of their own eyes? It is also a reason for psychological issues among parents and has become a depression factor for siblings. This threat is increased in the holiday times when kids roam free and tend to play in parking lots, abandoned parks, underground car parks etc. Not only putting up safety equipment at homes, but also parents and adults must take care to look in to it when they are driving, backing up or parking.
Kids are the biggest asset we have. If we ignore their safety, it is us who will have to worry later.
