How to Childproof Your Bathroom

By Jakemontgomery @LTDOnlineStores

Bathroom safety is important for everyone, but for babies and toddlers the bathroom can be the most dangerous room in the home. Drowning is the leading cause of death for children between the ages of 1 and 4 years old. Therefore it is very important for parents to be aware of the potential dangers in the bathroom. Toddlers are very curious and will eventually find their way into everything. So it’s up to parents to make sure that hazardous items are kept out of reach. The temperature of the water needs to be controlled because the skin of babies is highly sensitive. Burns are one of the most common types of preventable injuries. After every safety precaution has been taken, parents must still be extremely vigilant and never leave a child unattended. There are several things you can do to prevent accidents, and BabyCenter.com is a great source of information.
