It seems as technology progresses, there are more and more products out there that we as parents need to be cautious about. One of the items that has changed over the years is the battery. There are batteries that last longer than they did before, and with the coin sized lithium batteries, they become more enticing to little eyes. As a mom, I find that keeping items up and away from my little ones to be more and more of a task, especially when it comes to items that contain these smaller batteries that the kids play with. There is also the concern with the packaging. We have a drawer for our batteries, that for now, is out of reach for Wyatt, but I know it will not be long before he can reach it. Even with the child safety locks, if Wyatt is anything like his older brother, it will not be too much time before he too can figure out the locks and get into the things that we want to keep him out of. As for the batteries, well, if Wyatt does somehow get into the drawer, I want the packages with the batteries to not be easy for him to get into. To help me find those coin batteries that have that packaging that is not easy for little ones to get into, I was sent a great pack of products from Energizer. In this pack, they included a pack of the competition, so that I could compare the two on packaging to see which is one I would feel better about having in my home. I found that when I went to open the competition pack, it was not too hard, in fact after opening it, I thought about the fact that if Wyatt got a hold of the pack, it would not take too long for him to open it either. With the pack from Energizer, I was not able to open it without the assistance of some scissors, so personally, that puts me more at ease knowing that if Wyatt were to get a hold of a pack of the coin lithium batteries from Energizer, he will not be able to open it without assistance. This for me, is a way to ease my mind, and also help prevent my children from swallowing those batteries that are small enough for little ones to swallow as well as extremely dangerous if they do get swallowed. This past week was National Child Injury Prevention Week, and to continue the awareness for parents and caregivers, the people from Energizer want to share the 4 S’s of Coin Lithium Battery Safety:
STORE devices that use coin lithium batteries out of reach of children
SECURE the battery compartments of devices
SELECT battery packaging that meets federal guidelines for child resistance, such as Energizer’s coin lithium battery packaging
SHARE this information with your friends and family
Also, to help keep the children of my readers safe when it comes to the coin lithium batteries, the wonderful people from Energizer would like to give one of my amazing readers a great Energizer Prize Pack!
