To a baby’s eyes, your home is one big playground. He or she sees a lot of things to crawl under, climb on top of, pull down, touch, taste, and smell.
It can be fun to watch your baby discover new things as he or she learns to crawl and walk. But it can also be scary to think about what your baby might get into around the house. You can’t watch your baby’s every move. But there are steps you can take to keep your baby safe and still let him or her explore.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is an
independent federal regulatory agency. The goal of this agency is to save lives
and keep families safe by reducing the risk of injuries and deaths associated
with consumer products. CPSC develops safety standards, recalls products or
organizes how they will be repaired, researches possible product hazards, and
informs the general public about these and other safety issues. You can call
their toll-free number or e-mail them to report unsafe products.
