Babies and Bath Water

Babies and bath water. You have to be careful.

If you have small children, then you should have concerns that they will not be burned by the hot water coming out of your faucet. Set the thermostat on your hot water heater to below 120 F (48.9 C). Consider installing anti-scald devices on bathtub faucets and shower heads. Always test the water temperature before your child gets in the tub.

Babies and young children are especially¬†susceptible. They’re curious, small, and have sensitive skin that needs extra protection. Burn safety is a concept that most small children just don’t understand. In fact, one of the most difficult lessons young children might learn is that water can sometimes be painfully hot. Take these simple burn-safety precautions to help prevent injuries to the children that may be in your home.¬†
