The Nurses from Nurse Response Share Tips During Baby Safety Month
As the provider of multilingual telehealth services for more than 3 million lives - including many young ones - Nurse Response is sharing tips for National Baby Safety Month.
ST. LOUIS, MO, September 13, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- September is National Baby Safety Month, and as the provider of multilingual telehealth services for more than 3 million lives - including many young ones - the RNs at Nurse Response have put together some tips for improving the safety of babies in the home.
• Babies spend a lot of time sleeping. To help reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), always make sure baby is on his or her back when asleep.
• Make sure baby's clothing is fire retardant and free of loose buttons and strings that could be a choking hazard.
• When traveling in a car, the best protection for baby is to have him or her in a rear-facing child safety seat in a back seat. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents keep children rear facing up to at least the second birthday or up to the height or weight limit of the seat.
• If baby is in a carrier, be aware of where you place it. Babies can wiggle and knock the seat over, so avoid countertops and other high places.
• Always keep baby within arm's reach when bathing. Don't leave to answer the phone or door, or for any other reason. Remember that a bath seat is a bathing aid, not a safety device. Babies can slide out of bath seats, risking the chance of drowning.
• Take a CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) class specifically for babies and young children. In case of an emergency, you'll be glad you invested the time learning it.
