(HealthDay News) -- Baby pools can provide cool summertime fun, but parents should take steps to prevent dangerous accidents.

The Waterandhealth.org website offers this advice about baby pools:

  • Never leave a child unattended around a pool, no matter how little water is in it.
  • Adults supervising children who use the pool should be trained in CPR, and emergency phone numbers should always be nearby.
  • Frequently change the water in the pool to prevent buildup of bacteria and germs.
  • Dress children in swim diapers or tightly-fitting pants over their diapers.
  • Always empty the baby pool when not in use.
