In honor of Child Safety Month, we wanted to share a few child safety tips to avoid turning small accidents into more serious injuries. Learn 10 child safety tips to keeping your kids happy, active and safe!

  • Lay your baby on his or her back to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
  • Look for age-appropriate equipment and hazards, such as rusted or broken equipment and dangerous surfaces on playgrounds.
  • Before you’ve settled on the perfect toy, check to make sure there aren’t any small parts or other potential choking hazards.
  • Wait until your child reaches the weight or height limit of the car seat before moving them into a booster seat.
  • Use brackets, braces or wall straps to secure unstable or top-heavy furniture to the wall.
  • Keep toilet lids closed and use toilet seat locks to prevent drowning.
  • If you are placing your child in a shopping cart seat, use a harness or safety belt to prevent falls.
  • Keep small objects such as buttons, beads, jewelry, pins, nails, marbles, coins, stones and tacks out of reach and sight to prevent choking incidents.
  • Talk to your kids about medication safety and do not compare it to candy.
  • Install smoke alarms on every level of your home and in every sleeping area.

Folsom OB/GYN is always here to help provide important tips and information to ensure you and your family live a long and healthy life!

In honor of American Heart Month, we want to ensure you have you and your baby stay in the best health! View our healthy heart tips for expecting mothers, below:

Folsom OB/GYN would like to wish our wonderful patients a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We would also like to take this time and thank everyone who participated in the Christmas Around Towne holiday gift drive and help Folsom families in need as it was a huge success! We were able to partner with 65 other Folsom Organizations to help others whose lives have been disrupted to make their holiday season much brighter.

Big thank you to those that donated or purchased gift cards to the Camp Fire Victims FUND in the town of Paradise and surrounding areas who lost their homes and businesses. We will continue to collect and donate gift cards, throughout the next few months. These gift cards have gone directly to those who have been impacted. It will be an ongoing effort to do whatever we can to help those devastated by this tragic fire. We encourage you to stop by our office and donate any amount that you can.

Once again, we thank you for all the support you’ve given us. May you and your families enjoy peace and happiness through this holiday season. We look forward to another incredible year with our amazing patients!

Sincerely,

Folsom OB/GYN
