In brief: Check temperature
Never eat, drink, or carry anything hot near the baby or while you are holding the baby.
Turn down your water heater to 120°f (50°c). Check your smoke detectors to make sure they work. Check formula temperature carefully. Formula should be warm or cool to the touch. Try to keep your baby out of the sun as much as possible.  you may use small amounts of sun block on exposed areas, such as hands and face.
