Razors, scissors and nail clippers should be stored in a cabinet that is out of reach. Electric razors, curling irons and hair dryers should be unplugged in the bathroom. Any heating appliances can cause burns.
All medicine bottles and prescription drugs and cosmetics must be kept in a locked cupboard, or high up out of your baby's reach. Mouthwash is high in alcohol and even shampoo and liquid soap must be kept out of reach. Vitamins and herbal supplements can be poisonous to children, due to their size.
Avoid having any electrical appliances in your bathroom at all. Any socket outlets must conform to safety standards for bathrooms and should be fitted with earth-leakage protection, or be supplied from an isolated safety transformer. Do not use an extension cord in your bathroom that is plugged into a different room's socket outlet.
Non-slip mats on the floor are important, as well as a non-slip bathmat for the floor of the bath. You can buy soft covers for taps. Scald protectors are also available for the hot water tap.
Never leave your baby alone in the bath. Train your little one to remain seated when bathing. The constant repetition needed to get your child to comply is worth the effort.
