Child Safety Informatics


Over the years, has taught us that 13 is an unlucky number: Do not go to the 13th floor of a building and not out on Friday the 13th, our grandmothers used to say. However, 13 is also a sacred number due to its secret knowledge, mystery and tangible powers. This latest revelation has been taken with care by a professional who is known for its expertise in the study of child safety. Debra Smiley Holtzman The author brings a particular experience of the 13th to the pages of "The Safe Baby: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Home Safety." With this do-it-yourself manual, parents and the thought-to-be parents will learn the essential elements of child protection. I took from the book's publication. Here is the list Debra Holtzman, 13: 1. Balloons: More children have suffocated on uninflated balloons or pieces of balloons than any other type of toy. Ball-related deaths are more common among children of three years or more than among children smaller.

Keep balloons away from children under eight years old. 2. Storage Boxes: Suffocation deaths occur in those places when children crawl inside and can not escape. Your best bet is one without a lid or with a lightweight, removable. If the chest closes, make sure it has ventilation holes. 3. Bunk: To avoid the pitfalls, all the spaces between the guardrail and bed frame and head and feet must be less than three and a half inches and must not have guardrails on both sides. Children under age six should never sleep in the bed upstairs.
