It's nuts but I seriously almost forgot that Easter is coming up. Can you believe it!? Luckily, there's still time to plan a safe, and still fun Easter for your little one...
- Practice smart Easter egg safety during the holiday.
- Easter baskets are fun, but many of the items that go into them can pose a choking risk for your baby. If an item will fit through a common toilet paper tube then it's way too small to give your baby - this means no jelly beans, small candy eggs, or tiny toys. Also if you have older kids watch out for Easter egg shells as they may pose a baby choking hazard too. Learn how to make a totally safe Easter basket for your baby!
- Make sure your Easter dinner is a safe family get together for everyone, including your baby.
- Use colored shredded paper instead or plastic Easter Egg grass. Those small plastic pieces can choke your baby. Even if your baby eats a lot of paper; yup even colored paper, it's much safer for your baby to munch on than plastic grass.
- Be extra careful at the local Easter egg hunt. New walkers can be easily trampled on by excited older kids.
- Never give Easter chicks, bunnies, and baby ducks to a baby (or an older child for that matter). Not only is this unkind - many little Easter animals are forgotten after the holiday but also it's a safety risk. Many of these small animals carry salmonella and other diseases which can pose huge health risks to your little one and you.
