September is Baby Safety Month

During the month of September safety groups throughout the country will be promoting baby safety, focusing this year on the importance of properly using straps on all juvenile products.

Falls are the number one cause of non-fatal injuries for all young children, and one of the easiest ways to prevent a fall is by properly utilizing safety straps.

“Child safety devices, like safety belts and straps, should always be used when available. Straps, safety belts, and harnesses on baby gear reduce the risk of infant fall injuries.

Whether it’s in the home or on the go, learn how to properly use straps on a variety of products and the importance of correctly using them EVERY time in order to keep baby safe.”-Baby Safety Zone.

Additional baby-related safety tips:

  • Never leave babies unattended on furniture (like beds, chairs, or sofas).
  • Make sure your home is baby-proofed, adhere heavy furniture (like TVs, dressers, and shelfs) to walls or use safety straps.
  • Use safety gates at the top of your staircase and at the landing.
  • Use an oven latch to secure your oven door
