Baby-Proof Your Home

baby-safeKeeping your baby safe during the toddling stages of her life are essential. Here are some tips for baby-proofing your home:

ŸWhile cooking, keep pan handles turned away from the edge of the stove, as baby may get curious and pull down a hot pan.

ŸKeep blind cords tied up safely out of reach.

ŸPut “slam-stoppers” on doors so little fingers don’t get caught when they close. One handy tip: cut a pool noodle to size for use in this way.

ŸAffix bookcases and dressers to the wall.

ŸKeep cleaning supplies and other harmful products out of reach and/or locked away in a cabinet.

ŸPut “edge-cushions” on sharp corners, like coffee tables.

ŸPlace proper safety gates at the top and bottom of every stairwell.

ŸUse electrical outlet covers to protect against shock.

Baby-proofing your home is an on-going process. Continue updating as your family needs demand.
