Safety is such an important and often overlooked area of our job, probably because it’s uncomfortable to think about. Here are some quick tips:
- Take CPR classes at various stages & refresh your skills (infant, toddler, etc.).
- Maintain and update important information, and make sure babysitters know where to find it. Check out our Emergency Numbers Chart (PDF) that includes information such as 911, non-emergency police, poison control, pediatrician, dentist and hospital.
- Ask your local police department or baby store when the next car seat installations are taking place. An astonishing number of car seats are improperly installed.
- Teach your kids about safety. Let them ask questions – their areas of curiosity may surprise you!
