BATH SAFETY MONTH
January is Bath Safety Month!
Why is National Bath Safety Month important? It reminds us to protect those we love. It’s a good idea to make sure your bathroom floor is clean, free of spills and has a nonslip rug or mat placed on the floor near the bathtub or shower for balance when exiting. Childproof the bathroom. Make sure items are stored properly-tweezers, clippers and razors. Test the temperature. Always wait until the tub is filling up before placing your child in the water, due to the temperature can change. Install a safety handle in the bath and near the toilet to prevent slips and falls. Bathing can be a fun and relaxing experience to help adults and children sleep better.
