You may not be aware of it, but being a young child can be dangerous. Children under the age of five ? babies, toddlers and preschoolers ? are injured and treated in hospital emergency rooms almost twice as frequently as the U.S. population five and older (on a per capita basis). Each year, approximately 1 in 11 children under age five are treated in hospital emergency rooms for injures. And for every 2 young children treated in the ER, 3 are treated in doctors' offices and clinics.Although there are many ways in which a young child can get injured, in the overwhelming majority of cases, there is one common and consistent element ? a parent or caregiver did not recognize the danger involved. Child safety is different from many other aspects of parenting. The way a young child interacts with his environment ? the home, furniture and fixtures, baby products ? must be fully understood in order to make his environment safe.Fortunately, most injuries are easily preventable when parents learn the child safety basics and become aware of the many subtle and unforeseen dangers facing their children. The Child Safety Guide for New and Expecting Parents enables parents and caregivers to learn about these important and critical elements essential for providing a safe environment for their children. Topics covered include childproofing, car seat selection, use and installation, child products, product recalls and hazards ? water, choking, window, poison ? which face our children daily. The content was selected to provide the most important information available to keep young children safe and focuses on safety issues for children from 0 to 5 years of age. The bookwas designed and organized for the sleep deprived and over-worked parent. We have useda larger than normal type face to go easy on the eyes (sleep deprived eyes) and have includedmany illustrations to visually portray safety concepts. The use of this book can and will go a long way in helping to reduce the many avoidable child injuries that occur daily throughout the U.S.It would be hard to overstate the importance of car seat safety.
