Home Safety Ninja Checklist:

Safeguarding Your Little Explorer’s Haven!​

Welcome, vigilant parents, to the Home Safety Ninja Checklist within Parenting Genie! As your trusted guides, we are on a mission to transform your home into a secure haven for your little adventurers. Our comprehensive checklist covers every nook and cranny, from the kitchen to the outdoor spaces; ensuring your child’s safety is our top priority

      • Safety Precaution: Never leave your baby alone on elevated surfaces, such as changing tables, sofas, or beds.
      • Rationale: Babies can move unpredictably, and even newborns may roll or wiggle, risking accidental falls and injuries.
      • Safety Practice: Always keep one hand on your baby while using the changing table. If you must step away, ensure your baby is placed securely in a crib or safe surface.
      •  
    • Designated Changing Area: Set up a designated changing area with all necessary supplies within arm’s reach to avoid leaving your baby unattended.
    • Safety on the Change Table: Always use the safety straps or harness provided on the changing table to secure your baby in place.
    • Keep Items Out of Reach: Keep potentially harmful objects, such as diaper pins or small toys, out of your baby’s reach during diaper changes.
    •  
    • Back to Sleep: Place your baby to sleep on their back in a crib with a firm mattress and fitted sheet, without any soft bedding, pillows, or stuffed animals.
    • Safe Sleep Space: Avoid co-sleeping with your baby on a bed or couch, as it increases the risk of suffocation.
    •  
    • Support Your Baby’s Head: Always provide adequate support for your newborn’s head and neck when carrying or holding them.
    • Be Mindful of Hot Beverages: Avoid holding hot beverages or cooking while carrying your baby to prevent accidental spills or burns.
    •  
  • Never Leave Unattended: Never leave your baby unattended during bath time, even for a brief moment.
  • Secure Bathing Equipment: Use a non-slip bath mat and ensure all bathing equipment is within arm’s reach.
  • Proper Car Seat Usage: Use a rear-facing car seat designed for newborns and always buckle your baby securely before driving.
  • Temperature Control: Avoid overheating your baby by using appropriate clothing and not covering the car seat with heavy blankets.
  • Handwashing is Essential: Always wash your hands before handling your baby, especially during cold and flu seasons.
  • Cradle Your Baby Safely: Use proper hand positioning to support your baby’s head and neck while holding them.
      • Secure heavy appliances and cabinets with safety latches.
      • Keep sharp objects and utensils out of reach in locked drawers.

      •  
    • Install nonslip mats in the bathtub and shower.
    • Keep medications and toiletries out of reach in locked cabinets.
    • Set the water heater temperature to prevent scalding.
    • Place toilet locks to prevent accidental drownings.
    •  
    • Back to Sleep: Place your baby to sleep on their back in a crib with a firm mattress and fitted sheet, without any soft bedding, pillows, or stuffed animals.
    • Safe Sleep Space: Avoid co-sleeping with your baby on a bed or couch, as it increases the risk of suffocation.
    •  
    • Childproof electrical outlets with safety covers.
    • Use cord organizers to prevent tripping hazards.
    • Keep electrical cords out of your child’s reach.
