Baby Safety Checklist is now available online, consumer protection officials report

In recognition of Baby Safety Month, the New York State Division of Consumer Protection has put together a Baby Safety Checklist to help parents maintain a safe environment for their young children.

The checklist features information on sleeping, feeding, dressing and more.

“The first year of a baby’s life is packed with milestones that are both exciting and sometimes overwhelming,” said New York Secretary of State Robert Rodriguez, who oversees the Division of Consumer Protection. 

“The Baby Safety Checklist provides an overview of safety tips to help parents maintain a safe environment for babies. As parents, we can do a lot to avoid common injuries and it’s important to know prevention tips during these first critical months of a child’s life.”

The checklist contains such advice as never leaving a child unattended while eating, keeping a baby’s crib free of pillows, stuffed animals and blankets and avoiding baby toys with long cords.

There are many potential hazards for babies, but parents can keep their child safe by finding out what the risks are, and then preventing or removing them.  

The checklist contains more than 40 entries of tips and advice for keeping babies safe. It can be found at the website www.dos.ny.gov/consumer-protection, the announcement said.
