As a parent of a baby or toddler, you may have many questions about your young ones’ development. Whether your questions are about safety, nutrition, growth, development, or sleeping through the night, we’re here to help.
Nothing is more important than keeping your child safe from harm. As your little one grows and begins to explore the world, you want to do everything possible to make sure that she is safe and secure.
No child escapes the minor bumps and scrapes that are just part of growing up, but unfortunately, accidents are the most common causes of childhood injuries. You can’t prevent all accidents from happening, but you can take steps to reduce the risk.
Babies and toddlers are at risk for some accidents and injuries at certain stages. Whether your little one is mobile or not has a lot to do with the kinds of safety concerns you need to focus on. For example:
Read on for our top tips for keeping your little one safe and sound. We also encourage you to use our child-safety checklist to see which areas you might need to focus on to keep your child safe. As always, if you have any concerns about your child’s safety, please don’t hesitate to discuss them with your child’s doctor.
Your safety is important, too. If you are being hit, hurt, threatened, or put down by anyone at home, you and your children are at risk for other health problems. There is help available. Call the National Domestic Violence hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).

You're using a car seat for every ride to help keep your baby safe. But over time, your baby grows.
Straps need to be adjusted for your baby's height, and latches need to be checked regularly to ensure that your safety seat will protect your child in the event of a collision.
Keep your child in his or her rear-facing car seat, in the back seat for every ride. Your child should ride rear facing for as long as his or her seat’s height and weight limits allow, at least until age 2.
You might be surprised to learn that up to 70 percent of children ride in seats that are not installed correctly. To be sure your child’s seat will protect him or her in a crash, we encourage you to get your seat checked by a professional.
Visit Seatcheck.org to find a child seat safety inspection station near you and get help installing and using child safety seats. You can also call 1-886-SEAT-CHECK to find an inspection station or to make an appointment to have your seat inspected.
Toddlers are naturally active and curious, and at points they will test limits. Children this age are at risk of certain kinds of injuries. Learn more about the biggest risks and the steps to take to help keep your toddler as safe as possible, as he or she explores the world.
