Home is where babies grow up. Apart from being comfortable, the most important thing is safety. Parents may know that they can’t use pillows and quilts on their baby’s bed to prevent suffocation accidents, and they know that they need to use safety car seats for their baby when they go out of the house, but they may not think that there are many other safety hazards that are very dangerous for their baby every day. So how to prevent baby home safety?
1. Cut / stab prevention
At this time, your child would like to do housework like an adult, and the kitchen utensils at home must be placed properly.
Household utensils and small items with sharp ends, such as scissors, knives, needles, pearl necklaces, pen caps, etc., should be placed in locked drawers (or places hard for children to get).
Teach children not to use scissors and knives as toys, but to use them under the care of adults.
Household food processing appliances, such as bean grinder, juicer, etc., can not be left by adults when they are in use. When adults leave, turn off the power supply.
When selecting toys for children, pay attention to the sharp edges and corners of the toys.
Special scissors can be prepared for children to facilitate children’s learning of paper cutting.
2. Burn and scald prevention
Now, you can talk with your child about your family’s escape plan and important contact numbers in an emergency.
Your child may come into the kitchen at this moment and extend his small hand to help you, but he may help you.
The handle of the pot on the stove and the table should be inward, not outward, so as to prevent children from reaching for it.
Don’t put any hot food where children can reach, such as the cup on the edge of the table.
Do not put any ignition equipment on the table, especially the lighter.
Don’t put the electric cooker on the ground.
When cooking in the kitchen, it is recommended to close the door and not allow children to enter.
It is recommended to install smoke detectors in the house. Check the batteries of the detectors monthly to ensure they work properly, and it is recommended to replace the batteries every year.
Don’t let children play fireworks alone.
If your child is scalded by hot water, wash with cold water immediately. Or put the scalded part in cold water and soak it for several minutes to help cool down, then cover the scalded part with dry bandage or cloth, and take the child to the hospital for further examination and treatment.
Therefore, for a baby, “home” may not necessarily be safe. Remember that children’s home safety can not be done all at once. As the child grows older, parents should re evaluate the risks at all stages of the family according to the growth process of the child.
