September is Baby Safety Month
Did you know that household injuries are among the top reasons that children under 3 years old visit the emergency room each year? Young kids spend most of their time at home, so it is the place where they have the highest probability of sustaining an injury; however it is also the place that parents have the most control over the environment. In honor of Baby Safety Month, Boys Town Pediatrics compiled a list articles written by Board Certified pediatricians with guidance on keeping your little one out of harm’s way at home and on-the-go.
Here are a few tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics and Boys Town Pediatrics to make car travel safe and smooth at any age.
