In the bathroom:
1. Always test the water temperature before placing baby in the tub. Set your water heater to 120 degrees or install an anti-scald device to the end of the bath spout and sink faucet.
2. Safeguard from slips by using nonslip mats in and out of the tub as well as on any hard-surface floors near the bathroom — chances are you'll be chasing a naked, wet baby through the house at some point.
3. Install a toilet lock so little fingers don't get smashed, to protect from accidental drowning and to prevent any unsanitary exposure.
4. If you don't have an out-of-reach place to store medicines and supplements (for you and your baby), invest in a lockable medicine safe.
5. Keep looking like a hot mama, but always move the flat-iron cord (or any other appliance cord) out of baby's reach to avoid burns or strangulation.
6. Cover the tub spout to protect his head in case he falls.
