Winter Safety Tips for Children

December 4, 2015 at 6:53 pm Leave a comment

Follow these valuable tips to help keep your children safe and warm during this cold weather.

  • Dress infants and children in several thin layers to keep them dry and warm. Be sure they also wear warm boots, gloves or mittens and a hat.
  • Older babies and young children should have one more layer of clothing than an adult would wear in the same weather.
  • Blankets, quilts, pillows and bumpers and other loose bedding should be kept out of an infant’s sleeping environment as they may contribute to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Use sleep clothing like wearable blankets or one piece sleepers.
