Childhood poisonings are a frequent source of illness and death during the toddler years. Keep all medications in a locked cabinet.
Keep all toxic household products (polishes, acids, cleaning solutions, chlorine bleach, lighter fluid, insecticides, or poisons) in a locked cabinet or closet. Many household plants may cause illness if ingested, and toad stools and other garden plants may cause serious illness or death.
Obtain a list of these common plants from your pediatrician.
