• Keep young children out of the bathroom unless you are watching them closely. Even the few seconds you take to answer the doorbell or phone while a child is bathing can be deadly – a young child can drown in a matter of seconds in less than two inches of water. (Similarly, babies and toddlers can even drown falling into a toilet. Use toilet locks and latches to keep them safe).
• Childproof your bathroom. When designing your bathroom, make sure tub faucets are placed away from the spout and out of the child’s reach. Also, choose tubs with a nearly flat bottom and a nonslip surface.
• Cover the bathtub spout to prevent your child from banging his head against it by accident.
