“I received the Child Proof Advice Gift Basket as a gift recently and my husband and I were so excited to unwrap all the goodies inside! We will be able to use all the products once our baby is born and was so glad to receive such a thoughtful and practical gift.”
Relationship Banker, Aquesta Bank
“I recently attended my daughter-in-law’s baby shower and presented her with the basket of Child Proof Advice’s products. My daughter-in-law is not the typical mom-to-be. She is also the chief pediatric resident at one of the top children’s hospitals in the country. And, many of the guests at the shower were not only new moms but also doctors. I thought the gift basket was awesome; however, I had no idea if this discerning group would agree with me. Well, the gift was met with lots of approval! Whew! Thanks Child Proof Advice!”

CHILD PROOF ADVICE
“Give the Gift of Safety”
The Importance of a Safe Father’s Day
Whether you are a first-time dad, an adopting father, a first-time grandfather, uncle, brother or son, if a new child has entered your life, be ready to think differently. This is the time as an adult when you learn to put the safety and protection of a child above your own preferences.
Traditionally, fathers have been excluded from the dialogue about safety issues for their children, letting mothers and other females worry about the details. However, a growing number of dads are now staying home to care for their babies or are being left in charge while the moms address other issues.
This audience of males needs to be engaged now more than ever. Men in our communities can really make a difference in protecting children from unintentional injuries and we are here to help you understand how.
Babies are safest when everyone in the household knows how to care for them. That includes feeding, bathing, safe play time, administering infant / child CPR, medications, and creating a safe environment. Thinking you will automatically react to a risk correctly is incorrect. The curiosity of a child is a powerful force and they move at rapid speeds to explore their new world. Adults cannot anticipate the risks a child is exposed to without additional training.
Also, the important role men have in teaching other men ways to reduce the risk of serious childhood injury and infant fatalities should be reviewed and discussed. Child Proof Advice at childproofadvice.org provides important details and directs fathers to websites like the following:

Holding Your Toddler’s Hand !
What is the best way to hold your toddler’s hand to keep them from pulling out of your grasp?
And they do like to pull away from you….
Hold them, not by the hand, nor fingers, but by the wrist. Your hold on their wrist is stronger and the baby’s whole hand cannot slip from your grasp as easily as their fingertips.
And Not This:
The #1 cause of childhood fatalities is unintentional accidental injuries in our own homes. Get safety tips from our website at childproofadvice.org and from Make Safe Happen http://makesafehappen.com/, join the movement and raise awareness to help keep all children safe.
Make Safe Happen is a 60+ year commitment of Nationwide Insurance which also supports Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus OH.
NCH is America’s 3rd largest pediatric hospital and research center and is nationally recognized as home to the Center for Injury Research and Policy; dedicated to reducing injury in children and adolescents.
