Test your knowledge - How safe is your home?
When was the last time you crawled around your home on your hands and knees? As strange as it sounds, give it a go. Your baby will be crawling and exporing every day so why don’t you take a look at what and how they see things.
Half a million children under the age of 5 have to go to A&E due to an accident in the home. Young kids have the highest risk of being injured at home because that's where they spend most of their time and they are at an age of wanting to be into everything.
Curious children left unattended, even for a moment, will wonder into rooms that hold potential dangers. All parents wish to provide the very best possible environment for their young children to grow up in and any unnecessary bumps, tumbles, burns, fractures, and even more serious injuries can easily be avoided with a little understanding and common sense of the dangers and how best to avoid them.
Supervision is the best way to prevent injuries, in the home and out, but even the most watchful parents can't keep kids completely out of harm's way every second of the day.
