My 4 year old's toys are dangerous for babies. How can I keep our baby safe without banishing his sister?

In brief: Better choices

Fortunately, manufacturers know there may be problems when there are older children in the family.
They now make toys that are great for the 4 year old older child, yet not harmful to the younger child. Look for purchasing safer toys initially. Also helpful is to put the older child in charge (with parental supervision) in purchasing toys. That way the older child will help with the safety.
