Plunket is encouraging families to keep an eye on the kids while they make the most of the summer holidays. Plunket National Advisor on Child Safety, Sue Campbell says “Summer is all about fun, family, friends and hopefully some sunshine. But it’s also a time when sunburn and accidents are all too common.
Plunket is encouraged by a recent slight decline in the number of babies dying suddenly and unexpectedly. “Any decline is good news. We believe the years of safe sleep information promoted by Plunket and other community organisations are taking hold.
