Eliminate poisons.: Keep all medicines, vitamins, cleaning fluids, and other chemicals locked away. Dispose of them safely. Install safety latches on cabinets. Keep the poison center number on all phones (1-800-222-1222).
Dr. Natalie Geary
Pediatrics 30 years experience
Poisoning: I am not clear what you mean by " poisoned" . At 12 months the most likely cause of ingesting toxic substances is beauty and health care products. . So just be cautious where you lay your infant down to sit or crawl or if he/she is walking. More dangerous is that he/she pulls on a cord and pulls a lamp or TV down on the head
Dr. Amrita Dosanjh
Pediatric Pulmonology 36 years experience
Avoidance: Avoid contact with cleaning agents, medications and other potential hazards by moving these to high locked cabinets.
