new parents when your baby first comes home.A Parent's Guide to Kidsafe Homes cover

As a new parent, we know that the first 12 months of your baby's life can be a whirlwind of new information. One of the most important things to think about is safety and how to protect your baby from injuries at home, on the road and at play.

Injuries are the leading cause of death and hospitalisation in Australian children. While children at all ages are at risk of injuries, babies and toddlers are particularly vulnerable in their first year of life. Most injuries that happen to children under 12 months old occur in the home, where they are likely to spend most of their time.
The good news is that there are lots of ways you can watch out for your baby and reduce the risk of injuries. This guide provides a range of information on common injuries that can happen to babies and toddlers, and simple safety tips to help you provide a safe environment for your baby's first 12 months.
