6. Toy chests
If your child’s toys are kept in a chest with a heavy lid, it might be best to either remove the lid or use open storage boxes. Heavy lids pose an injury risk if the toddler were to have a body part reaching into the chest and the open lid wasn’t secured. There have even been cases of suffocation when a child has become trapped within the box.
Fortunately, most modern toy chests have added safety elements to help prevent injury. Open boxes and play areas can be a safer alternative.
7. Certain houseplants
Houseplants can be aesthetically pleasing for your home and garden, but some can be quite toxic and even lethal if eaten. Philodendron, oleander, and peace lilies are just 3 common examples. Check this extensive list here for toxic and non-toxic household plants.
Call poison control or an ambulance if you think your child has ingested anything unusual.
