Posted by Admin Dino, June 29, 2012
When welcoming a new member to the family it's important to baby proof the house. There are some simple things that you can do by yourself which can go a long way in keeping your cutie pie safe.
Do it yourself ideas
Make baths safe: One of the most important items to baby proof is the faucet. They are sharp and can easily injure the baby right under your vigilance.
Stop and go: Every door should have a stopper.
Corner rounder: There are a number of tables (coffee, dining, night, etc.) around the house with sharp corners. Soften the table corners using guards.
Shock proof: Cover your electric outlets especially the ones that are at ground level. These are simple devices which can prevent a dangerous situation.
Store away: Have a proper chest to store kids toys and your tools. There has been numerous cases where a baby got injured by a littered toy.
Ideas that may require professional help
Gate off stairs: Have a gate to prevent a baby from tumbling down the stairs. This is also a solution to keep babies out of dangerous areas (bath, toilet, kitchen).
Toilet lock: If you have an inquisitive baby its good to have the potty installed with a latch.
Latched: Have shelf and drawers latched. There is a large variety of options ranging from simple hooks to some aesthetically looking magnetic latches.
