Each year in the United
States, 2.8 million children head to the emergency room for injuries related to a fall and among babies younger than one, falls account for more then half of all non-fatal injuries.
Anyone who has watched an infant no doubt understands why tumbles are relatively common. Look away for a split second,
and a baby can roll off the couch, bed or changing table or slip out of his or her highchair.
Dr. Tony Woodward, chief of emergency medicine at Seattle Children's Hospital and a professor of pediatric emergency medicine at the University of Washington, told The Huffington Post. "Children are
usually one step ahead of where their parents think they are
[developmentally]." In other words, you may not know your son is capable
of rolling over -- until he does it while you're changing him, and ends
up on the floor. That's why it is so important for caregivers to keep
both a hand and an eye on their baby, Woodward urged.

"hand/eye" for those split seconds that you look away. Baby Catcher
