Store all household cleaners and chemicals in locked cabinets out of reach of your child. If any family member is on medication, it should be secured in its childproof container and then stored in an out of reach location. Be sure your baby sitter or day care provider also takes these precautions.

In case of an emergency, have the poison control center number near or in your phone. If your child should ingest a poison, call the poison control center at 1-800-222-1222 for further instructions.
