BURNS & SCALDS……
Remember a baby’s skin is 15 x thinner than an adults, so even the smallest burn could penetrate very deep.
Hot liquids and hair straighteners (would you believe) are 2 of the most common reasons that children get burned/scalded.
• Never hold a child while you are drinking a hot liquid.
• Keep pot handles turned to the middle of the hob, out of reach.
• Do not carry containers of hot liquid when children are underfoot.
Learn the basics – it could prove to be invaluable.
