Easter can be a fun holiday for your whole family, including your baby, but make sure you keep it safe with the following tips...
- Make sure you use basic Easter egg safety during the holiday.
- Never put anything too small in the Easter basket. That means nothing that could fit through a toilet paper tube. Jelly beans, small candy eggs, tiny toys, and even halves of those smaller plastic eggs can be baby choking hazards. Also look out for open Easter eggs - the shells pose a choking hazard too.
- If you're holding a big Easter dinner event make sure it's a safe family get together for everyone, including your baby.
- Skip the grass in the Easter baskets. Your baby could choke on the grass and it'll get everywhere which means later your baby could find some. Use colored shredded paper instead. Paper, even colored paper, is a much safer non-food item for your baby to munch on than plastic grass.
- If you let your baby attend an Easter egg hunt keep a super close eye on him. Older kids don't mean to be mean, but when over excited they might dash right over your little one.
- FORGET Easter chicks, bunnies, and baby ducks. One, it's not kind; many little Easter animals are forgotten after the holiday. Also many of these small animals can carry salmonella and other diseases which can pose huge health risks to your little one.
