Candles are pretty and very inviting to small children. Here are a few tips to keep your toddler safe.
Use candle holders that are sturdy, won’t tip over easily, and are made from a material that cannot burn and are large enough to collect dripping wax.
Place candles where they cannot be reached or tipped over by pets and children.
During an emergency, always use flashlights and not candles as light sources.
Never leave a child unattended in a room with a candle. Keep all matches and lighters out of reach and out of sight of children.
Keep all lit candles and other open flames away from any flammable liquids.
