Dangers involved with leaving your baby alone with a sibling, a pet, in the bath, or on a changing table, include: Being fallen on by siblings or bitten by pets.
It is tempting when you are busy to leave your baby alone just for a moment with their bigger toddler sibling, or a pet dog or even in the bath while you reach for a towel.
Katrina Phillips, the chief executive of The Child Accident Prevention Trust outlines some of the unseen dangers of leaving your baby alone in a variety of situations.
These range from babies being given inappropriate objects that they might put in their mouth and choke on, to inadvertently provoking a pet dog.
Babies often have no idea that they are in danger and even as they slip under the bath water would not know to shout out or cry.
