Burns

A baby's delicate skin burns easily. When you take the baby outside, shade him from the hot rays of the sun. Set your water heater no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit (48.8 degrees Celcius). Always test the temperature of your baby's bath water to be sure it's not too hot. Smoking cigarettes while feeding or playing with your baby is harmful to his lungs. It is also dangerous because hot ashes could fall on your baby. Also, don't hold the baby while cooking or drinking hot liquids. Hot food could splatter on the baby, he could touch hot pans or their contents, or hot liquids could spill on your baby.
