Resources for New Moms
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.
