Things you can do to keep your child from being burned or scalded:

  • Test bathwater temperature before placing child in the water
  • Set water heater temperature to 120 degrees
  • Don’t hold or carry a child when using a stove or microwave
  • Don’t use microwave to heat bottles of formula
  • Use back burners on stove or make sure to turn pan handles to back off stove, out of reach
  • Create a “safe zone” at least 3 feet in front of the stove.  Don’t allow small children with in the zone
