Do you know how to fill a bathtub? First turn on the cold water. Then add hot water. When the
tub is almost filled, turn off the hot water. Then turn off the cold water.
Remember: don't put your child in the bathtub while the water is running!
Check the water with your hand! Children have sensitive skin. It can burn easier than adult's skin.
That's why you should always check the water.
Put your hand all the way in the water.Spread your fingers. Move your hand back and forth throughout
the length of tub to check for hot spots. Then put your child in the tub.
Always stay with your child. Do not answer the phone or door. If you must leave the bathroom, take
your child with you.
Why?Some kids can turn the hot water on by themselves. It only takes seconds for small kids to drown
or burn themselves.
How hot is your water? The water from your faucet should be no hotter than 120ºF. If it's too
hot. . .
Turn it down:
The most painful burn is the one you could have prevented.
