Children have an interest in lots of things. The unexpected can happen and what we think is safe might not be. Whether it’s things like fire safety, risks of choking, or risks of burns or scalds, prevention and awareness is always key.
As a new parent you will want to do the best for your baby. Sometimes you may see advertisements, someone might tell you about a new product, or someone might give you a piece of equipment, or say ‘I did this and it was great’, but check it out – is it actually recommended? – and always follow the instructions.
Safety warnings are there for a reason. There are many hazards that can be avoided and there are steps that we can take to keep children and ourselves safe. There’s also learning from other people’s experiences, research and expert safety advice.
