Pets can be of real help in the growth and development of your baby. How can you ensure safety of your baby when you have pets around? Read further to know more.

  • Maintain the distanceAs long as your baby is very young, introduce her to your pet from a distance. She may first feel frightened or amused and your pet also requires time to get used to the new member in the family.
  • Keep your pet clean: In case you have a dog or cat, ensure that it is well-groomed and free of mites and dirt. Your baby may develop allergies if she comes in contact with a dirty pet.
  • Monitor playtime: If you allow your pet and your baby to play together, monitor their games. Most pets are very tolerant towards small babies. However, if the pet is unwell or moody it can scratch or bite.
  • Let them sleep separately: If you let your pet and your baby sleep next to each other, your pet may accidently smother your baby. It is best to keep them separate when they sleep.
