    Hi. I'm Lisa Wilson, Family Health Counselor here from Northern Virginia, talking to you about safety tips for baby. You never want to give baby something so small it can get logged in his throat like, raisins, crackers, biscuits, even things that are marketed towards kids, like goldfish. Second tip is you always want to go ahead and taste the baby's food you can just touch it to your lips or you can go ahead and taste it, then you are going to want to discard the spoon because you don't want to share your germs with the baby. You want to always keep your working area, and the baby's tray clean, a clean towel when you working, not wiping down utensils with the towel that's dirty and you have used when you are preparing the food. Last, never leave your baby unattended in a high check, accidents happen more frequently than you think, and safety is our number one priority.
