Did you know that National Bath Safety Month is approaching? This is an opportunity to learn about how to keep infants and toddlers safe in the tub. Unfortunately, an estimated 58 children ages 1-4 drown in the bath every year. This tells you that bath safety is something that should never be overlooked.
Here are a few quick tips to help you keep your littles safe, sound, and happily splishing and splashing in the bath.
- Never leave your child alone in the tub/pay attention as your child bathes- this may seem obvious, but still super important. Don’t leave the room, answer the phone, or do anything else that can be a distraction during bath time.
- Always close the door when filling the tub.
- If adding toys to the bath, put them in after the child is in the tub, not before. When selecting toys, adhere to the three “S’” – squeaky, squirty, or spongy!
- Never leave buckets or large toys in the bathroom area that a child can use as a step.
