Your Baby’s Safety
The kinds of injuries a baby may experience change with age, so you need to consider and adjust your safety efforts continuously. No one can protect a baby from all hazards; but there is a lot you can do, starting the day your baby comes home from the hospital.

Car Safety
Always use a government-approved, rear-facing car safety seat in the back seat of your car. In an accident, a baby held in a passenger's arms can strike parts of the inside of the car or be thrown from it. Make sure that there is NO air bag protecting the seat where your baby is placed. Ask me for information to help you buy, rent, or borrow an approved car safety seat.

Be sure your dashboard and back seat shelf are free of all objects that could fly off if you hit the brakes suddenly. Never leave your baby alone in a vehicle. Keep the vehicle at a comfortable temperature and well ventilated. On hot days, check the car seat surface before placing your baby in the seat. Cover a leather or plastic seat with a towel to avoid burning the baby. On cold days, bring an extra blanket to cover your baby.
