Health Tip: Use Baby Pools Safely

(HealthDay News) -- Baby pools can provide cool summertime fun, but parents should take steps to prevent dangerous accidents.

The Waterandhealth.org website offers this advice about baby pools:

  • Never leave a child unattended around a pool, no matter how little water is in it.

  • Adults supervising children who use the pool should be trained in CPR, and emergency phone numbers should always be nearby.

  • Frequently change the water in the pool to prevent buildup of bacteria and germs.

  • Dress children in swim diapers or tightly-fitting pants over their diapers.

  • Always empty the baby pool when not in use.
