Health Tip: Protect Young Ones From Suffocation

Health Tip: Protect Young Ones From Suffocation

06/12/13

(HealthDay News) -- Babies and toddlers are at higher risk for suffocation while they're sleeping. Parents can help keep their infants safe by following these guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Place an infant in a crib or bassinet with a firm mattress, without blankets, pillows or stuffed animals.
  • Do not hang objects, such as mobiles, above baby's crib.
  • Break up or cut foods into bite-sized pieces. Always watch your child carefully while he or she is eating.
  • Make sure your child carefully chews food. Don't encourage laughing or talking during eating.
  • Don't allow your child to run or play while eating.
  • Make sure all toys are age-appropriate and do not pose a choking hazard.
  • Take a CPR class, and learn basic first aid.
