|Spend some time exploring your house as if you were a young child. This will show you the many potential dangers which, if not removed, could harm your child.
||Make a list of these potential dangers and remove them to safety or protect your child from them by using safety devices. Talk to the contacts list if you are unsure about this.
||With very young children the tone of your voice and facial expressions alongside explanations are extremely important. Children will begin to sense the warning tone in your voice over time.
||Remove dangerous objects like drugs, syringes, medicines and household chemicals out of the reach of children and lock them away safely. Do this before your child is exposed to any hazard.
||Talk to your health visitor or midwife.
