Prevent Falls

As your baby learns to pull up on furniture and walk, they will fall often.  

Here are some ways to prevent dangerous falls: 

  • Install gates on stairways and doorways. 
  • Install operable window guards on all windows above the first floor. 
  • Remove sharp-edged or hard furniture from the room where your baby plays. 
  • Do not use a baby walker. Your baby may tip it over, fall out of it, or fall down the stairs in it.  

If your baby gets hurt in a fall and starts acting differently after a fall, call your child’s provider.
