Drowning can occur in less than 2 inches of water. NEVER leave a child unattended in a bath tub; nor should a child be left in the bath tub in the care of an older sibling.
Set your hot water heater to 120°F or lower. Always check water temperature before placing your child in the tub. Swirl water around with your hand to eliminate any hot spots.
Keep cabinets and drawers locked to prevent access to perfumes, soaps, lotions, deodorant, mouthwash, medicines, vitamins, etc.—all of which can be unsafe if ingested. Store razors and razor blades in a locked cabinet or drawer. In the tub, keep soap and shampoo out of your child’s reach.
Place slip-resistant mats in the tub and a slip-resistant pad under bath mats.
