As a parent we look for the safest car seat, some make homemade baby food, look for BPA free plastics, refuse plastic toys, cloth diaper, selectively choose vaccines, use outlet covers, baby gates, coffee table bumpers, fireplace gates, door knob covers, window locks, play yards, bike helmets, knee and elbow pads and the like. One thing that is often overlooked is tipped tvs or furniture.
SafeKidsworldwide shows a clip of the today show showing video of tip overs and how dangerous they can really be. They have a point of view camera showing the impact which is equivalent of an infant falling 10 stories. A mother who lost her child at two years old to this tragedy speaks.
