Children can drown easily in little water, hence make sure that you empty the bath tub or water buckets after using them.

Never leave your child alone in the bathroom and always keep the
bathroom locked when it is not in use.

Keep your bathroom floor dry to prevent your child from slipping in the bathroom. Place rubber mats or any kind of foot mats on the floor next to the bathroom door. To prevent slips, make your child to dry his or her feet after bath.

Teach your child to stay seated while bathing. Encourage him or her by providing bath toys or a bath seat.

Keep cleaning products such as shampoos, soaps, and medicines and other bathroom accessories such as shaving razors, blades, etc. in locked drawers.

Place a lid lock on the toilet to prevent your toddler from getting drowned in the toilet.
