September Tips of the Month: Keeping Baby Safe by Water
  • Before you begin, have all supplies within arm's reach and in front of you.

  • Do not leave a baby unattended for even a second. Baby bath seats and baby bathtubs are not a substitute for supervision. They are only bath aids, not safety devices. Follow all manufacturer's labels and warnings.

  • If you need to leave the bathroom, take the baby with you. Do not rely on older children/siblings to watch the baby for you.

  • If the phone rings, let the machine get it, or bring a cordless phone into the bathroom with you.

  • Check that the hot water heater is not set any higher than 120.

  • Never leave a child unattended while filling the bathtub and always empty bath water immediately after use.

  • Fill bath with no more than two inches of warm water. Test temperature with your elbow or a thermometer. Temperature should be between 90 and 100 Fahrenheit.

  • Consider placing a latch on the bathroom door to keep children out of the bathroom when unsupervised.

  • Do not use a baby bath seat in a tub with a textured or non-skid bottom. The suction cups may not stick to the bathtub. If the seat moves or tips while your child is in it, stop using it.

  • Keep toilet lid down to prevent access to the water. Consider using a toilet seat lock to prevent children from opening the lid.
