Baby Safety Tips for Visiting Family this Holiday Season

Posted

(NewsUSA) - With winter holidays approaching, families are planning long-delayed visits. Adding to the excitement, many grandparents and relatives may be welcoming babies and toddlers into their homes for the first time!

Keeping young children away from potentially unsafe areas in new settings can be a challenge. Simple tips and baby-proofing solutions can help give families and caregivers peace of mind while socializing during the holidays. Dreambaby® Co-Founder and Product Development Director, Carolyn Ziegler shares their child- safety essentials for holiday visits.

1. Dreambaby® Outlet Covers and Dreambaby® Safety Catches are easy to slip into a purse, diaper bag, or suitcase, for easy access when staying in a setting that is not already childproof.

2. Whether staying in a hotel or with friends or family, a reliable and simple booster seat is a must-have for caregivers with little ones. The Dreambaby® Grab 'N Go Booster Seat is lightweight, compact and comes with a storage compartment for bottles, diapers, wipes, and snacks.

3. When it's bath time and bedtime, babies and toddlers thrive on routines. The Dreambaby® Room and Bath Thermometer is small and easy to pack, and the duck will bring a smile to a young face in an unfamiliar bedroom and bathroom. The thermometer rechecks temperature every 10 seconds and makes a great stocking stuffer for new parents. Additionally, the Dreambaby® Savoy Bed Rail helps keep bedtime stress-free and provides extra security for your young children as it suits mattresses up to queen size.

4. When traveling by car, many drivers appreciate being able to see their babies in rear-facing car seats. The Dreambaby® Car Back Seat Tablet Holder & Mirror is an ideal solution for any road trip. The extra-large mirror offers a wide-angle view and attaches easily to the headrest of a back seat or elsewhere with various attachment options. The reverse side of the mirror is an iPad holder that is essential for long trips with children who are forward-facing.

5. For added safety in any setting, traveling families will love the Dreambaby® Royale 3-in-1 Converta Play-Pen Gate, a combination play-pen and gate that helps keep children safer in any room. The sturdy metal design shifts from a hardware-mounted barrier gate to a defined play space, and it packs away easily for travel or storage.

6. And finally, what is a holiday without a delicious meal? To keep babies fresh in their holiday outfits, the deluxe Dreambaby® Character Bibs will protect kids from spills and messes and has cute themes, such as princess, fairy, doctor and veterinarian. The bibs cover the full torso and arms, so no need to worry about sleeves in the sauce or condiments dripping onto their holiday outfits. Other key features include a crumb-catcher pocket and waterproof, wipeable material so they are ready to go immediately after mealtime.

Dreambaby® is a family-owned and internationally renowned company with more than 20 years of experience in developing affordable, high-quality child-safety products.
