Supervision

As your baby grows, keep small objects such as buttons, pins, and toys with small parts out of the baby's reach so he cannot pick them up and swallow them. If you offer a pacifier, use only a commercially made one that meets safety standards and doesn't have a long cord that could wrap around his neck and cause choking.

Never leave your baby alone with a person you don't know. Never let any stranger take your baby from you, no matter what the excuse. Don't leave your baby alone with a pet, no matter how "friendly" the pet has been. Don't leave your baby alone with any young child.
