There are numerous child safety hazards to protect against in your bathroom. Never leave a child alone in the bathroom or let them play there. Below is a list of top hazards to protect.
1. Lock your toilet. Kids often like to play or place toys in the toilet. A Toilet Lock will keep them away from potential unsanitary conditions as well as the drowning hazard.
2. Move medicine out of reach, or lock it up in a Medicine Safe.
3. Supervise children while they bathe, never leave them unattended.
4. Make sure water temperature is safe for young kids. Set your water heater to 120 degrees or less to prevent scalding. You can also use a bath tub thermometer to check.
5. Safeguard toiletries and cleaners in cabinets and drawers with Cabinet Safety Locks.
6. Prevent falls with bath mats and safety grips.
7. Cushion or shield the tub spout to prevent head bumps with a Tub Spout Cover.
8. Make sure there are no dangling cords from hair dryers or other plug-ins. Put away if necessary.
9. Do not place used razors or other dangerous items in a accessible waste basket.
10. Consider using a door top lock to keep the child out altogether.

Between 2008 and 2010 there were 22,000 furniture tip-over injuries to children younger than 9 according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Furniture safety is not hard and it is not expensive.
A simple strap attached to the wall and the furniture will take care of tip-overs. An “Anti-Tip Furniture Strap” made by Kidco will do the trick and put your mind at ease when it comes to a large piece of furniture possibly spilling over onto your child.
For more ideas on furniture safety please go to “Home Furniture Safety”.

Baby Gates, Baby Safety

There were 1,900 gate related injuries requiring emergency room care in 2009. Older accordion style gates with diamond shape openings are a main culprit because they can entrap a baby’s head, hand or arm. It is better to use a gate with vertical bars.
It is very important to use the right gate at the right location. Using a pressure mounted gate at the top of a stair is inadequate. A screw-in hardware mounted gate is much safer at a stair.
Baby Stairway Gate
You also have to install the gate in a proper manner, by securely attaching it to the wall with screws that reach the underlying wall stud, or by using hollow wall anchors. Follow all manufacturer instructions when installing.
It is also good to be mindful of the small plastic parts on a gate that may break over time. Small pieces could be a choking hazard, and the gate may not work properly if a part is broken. It is a good idea to monitor product recalls in case your gate is recalled for safety reasons.
Kidsafe has put together a guide to help you choose the right gate. Guide Link

A federal health panel for the first time acknowledged concerns that BPA , a chemical found in thousands of plastic products like baby bottles, may cause cancer or other serious disorders.
Public health advocates said the report should spur the government to ban BPA, at least in baby products. Formula-fed infants are most vulnerable to the chemical, because it is found in baby bottles as well as the linings of canned powdered and liquid formula. They get a double exposure.
The FDA has been under pressure from numerous studies to regulate this chemical but so far has not taken action.
You may want to consider using non-plastic bottles to lower the potential risk of exposure to BPA.
