Sitting Up In Tub

The most crucial piece of advice: Don't leave your child alone in here, and especially don't leave your child alone in the bathtub, even for a second. Babies can drown in a few inches of water; don't run out to answer the phone or do anything else unless you pull your child out and take him with you. Then, as you did in the kitchen, move harmful products to high shelves, and remove all electrical appliances and their cords to avoid electrical dangers. Some more purchases to put on your shopping list:

  • Latches for the medicine cabinet.
  • A toilet lock.
  • A thermometer to ensure baby's bathwater is a safe temperature.
