Infant Health

Take you baby for regular health exams and vaccines (shots).

Do not shake, toss, or swing your baby in the air, even in a playful way.

Let your baby crawl in order to have stronger legs and arms. Do not use an infant walker, which may cause injuries.

Select a crib with nonlead-based paint and with bars no more than 2 and 3/8 inches apart.

Keep your baby's skin, hair, body and clothes clean.

Wash your hands with soap and water after changing diapers.

Keep your baby away from tobacco smoke. Try to stop all tobacco use.
