Preventing Baby Falls During the Postpartum Period

Preventing Falls

Never leave a newborn alone on any surface higher than the ground (such as changing tables, chairs, tables, sofa beds, or kitchen countertops). If the baby is on any elevated surface, always keep your hand on them. Even at a young age, babies can wiggle, move, or push against objects, which may cause them to fall. If you need to step away for a moment, always place the baby in a safe location, such as a crib or playpen.
