How to childproof your bathroom

Sharing what I read in the papers today:

Accidents do happen, and they can happen in the bathroom. While taking efforts to childproof your bathroom, remember that no safety device outweighs the importance of adult supervision.

Set water heater to 120°F (49°C) to prevent scalding.

A moment's inattention can result in tragedy. Keep toilet seat cover closed to prevent drowning.

Medications, toiletries and cleaning supplies should be kept out of reach. Tablets and pills may look like sweets to a child.
