Household accidents

Act immediately and calmly

 

Falls

For babies the biggest danger is rolling off the edge of a bed, or changing surface. For toddlers it is more about falling from furniture or down stairs.

Prevention

Make sure baby cannot roll off any surfaces, put pillows around them. Do not put a bouncing cradle or car seat on a surface where they could wriggle off.

What to do

Use stair gates for toddlers. Make sure balconies are locked and fit restrictors and safety locks to windows.

If your child has a serious fall dial 999.
