Downhill Sledding Can Be Dangerous for Toddlers

Posted by

Infants and toddlers under the age of 2 should not participate in downhill sledding or tobogganing, even as a passenger accompanied by an adult.  The risks are many for a fragile young child of that age.  It is better to take your child for rides by pulling them on a sled or snow disk on flat ground. Once your child is old enough to participate in downhill sledding they should be closely supervised by you until about the age of 6 or 7.  You should also teach them the proper safety rules for sledding.
