Accidents happen to everyone, but there are things we can do to make them happen less often and be less dangerous. To keep babies and infants safe, the first step is to know how they are most likely to get hurt. Drawing on data from the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, this guide gives information about the kinds of accidents that are the most common for children before age 1, and then offers suggestions about what dads can do to help avoid these accidents.
