HOW PARENTS CAN REDUCE THE RISK OF BABY & # 39; S COMING ON NAPPY & # 39; S
Sheila Merrill, public health advisor at the Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents, recommends parents and caregivers to minimize the risk of suffocation by:
- Keeping diaper bags and all plastic packaging from young children
- Never store diaper bags near a cot or pram
- Be aware that diaper bags can easily be moved due to drafts
- Buy diaper bags on a roll, if possible
She continued: & # 39; She had only allowed Baby Holly to sleep for 30 minutes while she showered and changed and forgot to remove her headband and is totally broken. & # 39;
The post quickly gained nearly 90,000 shares and 10,000 responses from shocked parents.

Sheila Merrill, RoSPA & # 39; s Public Health Advisor Manchester Evening News: & # 39; Children can easily swallow, inhale, or choke objects that are still within their reach because they naturally pack everything and put it in their mouths. Once in their mouth they find it difficult to remove the item.
& # 39; Parents can prevent the risk of suffocation and suffocation by keeping small items or items out of the reach of children under the age of three. & # 39;
