Tips for Electricity safety :

Children are very curious; they love to explore everything which is new for them. Likewise, when they see their elders switching lights on and off using electrical wires for their chores, they also want to copy them. But instead of copying them they start playing with electricals.

Immediately wrap blow dryers, toasters, and other cord appliances after use. Don’t fly kites near power lines. Never let your child climb on power poles.

Safety during Sleeping :

Good sleep is very essential for a baby’s health and well-being. Sometimes it happens that a baby feels uneasy when he is not finding a suitable atmosphere to sleep. Then, it becomes important to give a soothing environment to a baby so that he can sleep comfortably.
