Children 0-4 years old are constantly growing and changing. They love to explore, but are not able to understand or recognize dangers that can cause them to fall.
A child can fall when they are:

  • Jumping on the bed
  • Playing on the stairs
  • Climbing on furniture.

Supervision and making small changes to your home are the best ways to prevent your child from falling.
