With the holidays right around the corner we are getting ready to get all the decorations out, Julie Vallese, Safety 1st Consumer Safety Expert gives us the following safety tips to help keep our little ones safe this holiday season:
Dec the Halls…
The holidays are a time for food, family, gifts and decorations! For many families, decorations are the highlight of the holiday season, but there are some important things to consider to keep your children safe when decorating.
Once all of your decorations are up, keep a close eye on children and the decorations themselves. Your child will naturally be fascinated by lights. Before you put the lights up check each set, new or old, for broken sockets, and loose connections. Throw out damaged sets, and always replace burned-out bulbs with the same wattage bulbs.
Sometimes curiosity just gets the best of our little ones. Make sure to keep decorations high and out of reach of small children. I am always surprised how high children can reach when they really want something!
For a long time we had all been told that poinsettias are poisonous. We now know that is not true, but mistletoe berries are. It is best to avoid mistletoe completely with young children around.
