Safety Tips

* Even adults sometimes walk into closed sliding glass doors. To help youngsters to avoid this hazard, place a piece of colored tape on the glass at eye level to alert the child when the door is closed.

* Teach a child as early as possible that red means danger. Paint all harmful bottle caps with red fingernail polish. Red is a danger signal that he/she will recognize throughout his/her life.

* If your toddler likes to try sneaking outside when you’re not looking, tie a small bell to the door. You will always be able to hear when the door is being opened.

Baby’s First Pair Of Shoes

* For baby with his/her first pair of hard-soled shoes, walking on a ahrd surface is like walking on ice for an adult. If you glue a very thin strip of foam rubber to the soles of the shoes, the baby will gain much confidence when he/she is walking. When worn, scrape off the remains with a razor blade and apply a new piece.
