Annual Babyproofing Fair

Childproofing the home

What?

Babyproofing fair is for parents female and male that have any children under the age of six to come and learn a little extra about "babyproofing" their home. Household injuries are one of the top reasons kids under age 3 visit the ER, and nearly 70% of the children who die from unintentional injuries at home are 4 years old and under. Young kids have the highest risk of being injured at home because that is where they spend most of their time. To ensure the safest environment for your family. Take the ammunition out of the gun. Lock the gun and keep it out of reach of kids. Hiding the gun is not enough.Lock the ammunition and store it apart from the gun.Store the keys for the gun and the ammunition in a different area from where you store household keys. Keep the keys out of reach of children.Lock up gun-cleaning supplies, which are often poisonous.When handling or cleaning a gun, adults should never leave the gun unattendedThe temperature of the water is important, too. Enter the water slowly and make sure it feels comfortable for you and your child. A temperature below 70°F is cold to most swimmers. Recommended water temperatures vary depending on the activity, swimmers age, and whether or not they are pregnant. In general, 82°-86°F is comfortable for recreational swimming for children. . If you live in a building constructed before 1978, it may contain lead paint. Lead paint is especially dangerous to your child if it's flaking or peeling. Lead can also be found in tap water from older pipes that are lined or soldered with lead. If your home was built before 1978, or if there's any other risk of lead exposure, talk to the doctor about getting your child’s blood tested for lead.Here are just a few key things that will be taught for you and your little one.
