To new parents, it sometimes seems as though there are life-threatening safety hazards lurking in every room in the house. Fortunately, there's no need to panic. In The Safe Baby, Debra Holtzman takes us on room-by-room tour, thoroughly and calmly identifying problem areas and offering specific, easy-to-implement solutions. No home should be without a copy.

Debra Holtzman's columns have interested my readership for years, and I am exceptionally happy that she has put this book together. What a wonderful resource for parents, and what interesting reading!
—Phyllis Juried, publisher, Today's Parent
The only book parents will ever need, The Safe Baby is the most comprehensive book I’ve ever seen on the topic of home safety. I can think of no better gift to the new family than a copy of this book. Even if you have already raised several children, there are topics in this book that will be new to you or pages you turn down because you’ve forgotten to be as safe as you should. It was a good refresher for our family, and we have a five year-old!
