Child Safety Week June 18th-24th 2012


Childproofing your home is a challenge for all parents but with twin or triplet infants, the job is multiplied!

Child Safety Week June 18th-24th 2012 is organised by the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) and aims to highlight dangers to children in and around the home. The theme for this year’s Child Safety Week is Small steps to safety. Conveying a very clear message that it only takes a few small steps to help make a child’s environment safer, it’s also a reflection of the small footsteps taken by a young child.
 
In Twins Tips you will find a range of tips to help you make your home safe for your twins, triplets or more.
If you want to find out about child accident prevention - whether you're a parent, carer or professional concerned with child health - contact CAPT on 020 7608 3828 or visit www.capt.org.uk. CAPT also produces a range of publications covering many child safety issues.
