Beware the Balloons

Beware of leaving latex balloons lying around as these can cause a real choking hazard. A toddler may be tempted to imitate blowing up a balloon and accidentally inhale it instead. The latex will attach itself to the throat, totally preventing the ability to breathe. If a balloon pops then make sure you clean away the pieces immediately. Try using Mylar balloons as an alternative and always supervise any balloon play.
