Babyproofing Basics: The Top Hazards in Your Home
6 of 12
A cord can easily become wrapped around a baby's neck, causing strangulation. Toys with a pull string should be kept away from your infant or toddler. Check all windows for blinds or shades with potentially hazardous hanging cords, and keep your baby's crib away from any window with a cord. Cord shorteners should be purchased for any blinds or shades that have a long cord.
Also, do not hang any toys or pacifiers on strings, ribbons, cords, or loops around your baby's neck or in his crib.
