Slide 11

By placing nonslip bathmats throughout the bathtub and in the surrounding areas, you can eliminate the risk of slipping.

Slide 12

Slide 14

The potential for your child to slam their fingers in a cupboard or in the toilet are great.

Invest in baby monitors

Fifthly, baby monitors are must.

Slide 30

Leaving your young child completely unattended is never advised—even if you think they’re in their crib and not going anywhere.

Slide 31

Particularly depending on your lifestyle, baby monitors have become increasingly important in today’s society where so many things can distract us from vigilance.

Slide 32

Buy stove knob covers

Slide 33

Sixth, the stove is a hazard that many parents don’t think about.

Slide 34

When your child reaches a certain height, and despite your best efforts, they still may view the stove knobs as something right at eye level that’s fun to play with.

Slide 35

Investing in stove knob covers is a smart preventive measure to take, particularly with something so potentially harmful.

Slide 36

Keep fire extinguisher in kitchen

Slide 37

Seventh, still regarding the stove, you should always keep an up-to-date fire extinguisher in your kitchen, and in various points of the house.

Slide 38

Remember, your child wants to get into anything and everything, and you are their only source of protection in this world.

Make sure you do your due diligence and keep them from getting into something that could really hurt them.
