Health Tip: Protect Children During Holidays

(HealthDay News) -- Visiting with friends and family is a joy of the holiday season, but a festive get-together can pose dangers for young children.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests these safety tips:

  • If you're a host, clean up right away so young children can't get into leftover tobacco products, alcohol or food.
  • Loved ones' homes may not be childproof, so watch for cluttered stairways and unlocked cabinets, etc.
  • On the way to the festivities, make sure kids wear seatbelts or use age-appropriate car seats.
  • The holidays can be stressful for children, so stick to your usual routine as much as possible, and make sure the kids get enough sleep.
