Nappy sacks

Nappy sacks pose a suffocation hazard as young babies naturally grasp anything and put it in their mouths, but they find it more difficult to let go.

Nappy sacks are also flimsy and are small enough to fit into little mouths.

Nappy sacks can kill, but making some simple changes can make a big difference to your children's safety.

To avoid suffocation or choking always keep nappy sacks and other plastic bags and wrapping away from babies and young children and buy them in a roll if possible.

Don't ever place nappy sacks in a baby's cot or pram.
