Preventing Burns and Scalds for Babies Aged 4-7 Months

When holding your baby, do not smoke, drink hot beverages, or cook near the stove. Place hot beverages, such as coffee or tea, out of your baby's reach. To prevent scalding, set the maximum temperature of your faucet water to 49°C (120°F).

Choking Prevention

Do not give your baby any food that might cause choking. Ensure all food given to your baby is mashed or sufficiently soft to prevent choking.
