Safe4Baby recognizes that having a baby is the beginning of one of the most exciting journeys in life. Babies bring with them the excitement of watching a new person grow and develop, the love that comes with caring, and the responsibility of knowing that someone depends on you. Unfortunately, many parents and caregivers are not aware of some simple things that they can do to help ensure the safety and health of babies and small children, and the result can lead to tragic injury and sometimes even death.
