  1. Never leave your baby unattended on any surface above the floor. Infants as young as one month old have been known to extend their bodies and flip over the edge.
  2. Do not use baby or talcum powder on the baby. If inhaled, powders can cause severe lung damage and breathing problems in babies.
  3. Keep the crib free of all small objects(small toys, safety pins, buttons etc..) that he could swallow.
  4. Never leave plastic bags or wrappings where your baby can reach them. He could inadvertently suffocate himself.
  5. Never ever leave your baby alone anywhere.
  6. Dont place a string or necklace around the baby's neck(especially true for the indian community). He could strangle himself.
  7. Do not shake the baby. Read the SHAKEN BABY SYNDROME post.
  8. Always support the baby's head and neck when moving her body.
