Family safety week – staying safe at bathtime

Bath time should be an enjoyable time for young children and is often a good bonding opportunity for the parents and somewhere to play, relax and unwind before bedtime. But the bathroom can often be a dangerous place and children need constant supervision whilst in there.

Staying safe in the bath 

  • its important to remember that children can drown quickly and quietly in just 3 cm of water, never leave children in the bath tub on their own, even just for a second. Accidents can occur very quickly, so even just turning your back might be for too long.
  • if you’re unsure about the temperature of the bath tub you can buy bath temperatures to check or equally use your elbow, which is more sensitive to heat.
  • run the cold water first and then add hot water and mix it well to prevent hot spots.
  • use bath mats to prevent any slips
  • keep bath products out of reach or in a locked cupboard, especially bathroom cleaning products.

 

Our next family safety week blog post will be posted tomorrow and is all about staying safe in the kitchen. . . stay safe!
