Kids are curious by nature so childproofing helps in creating a safe environment for them to explore

Here are some tips to help you childproof every corner of your home:

Child proofing your baby’s nursery: 

  • Position the crib mattress as low as possible to eliminate the probability of your baby climbing out.
  • As your baby learns to stand, make sure the mobile from above the crib is removed.
  • Don’t forget to secure heavy furniture and bookshelves to the walls to prevent the risk of tip-overs.
  • Keep the crib distant from the windows.

Child proofing all your rooms:

  • Install cordless window coverings.
  • Lock your medicines and first aid box in a cabinet.
  • Anchor your key stand at a decent height for hanging all the keys in one place.
  • Keep your washrooms locked at all times.
  • Keep breakables and other sensitive items away from your baby’s reach.
  • Use corner guards to cushion sharp furniture edges.
  • Install baby gates on the stairs.
  • Keep plants out of your baby’s reach.
  • Position wobbly items like lamps behind heavy furniture.
  • Anchor TV to the wall and keep the cords away from your baby’s reach.
  • Keep sharp objects away from the reach of your little one.
  • Use outlet covers or furniture to cover electrical outlets.
  • Remove anything that could act like a potential choking hazard.
  • Ensure your baby doesn’t have free access to any risk-oriented place and substance. 

Childproofing your Kitchen:

  • Keep cleaning products out of your baby’s reach.
  • Objects like fridge magnets should not be accessible to your baby.
  • Plastic wraps are required to be locked away to avoid the probability of your baby getting strangled.
  • Your cabinets, drawers, oven, and refrigerator should have a safety latch installed on them.
  • Install baby gates at the entrance of the kitchen.

Childproofing your Washroom:

  • Keep the washroom gate locked at all times.
  • Use a safety lock to secure the toilet seat.
  • Keep the toiletries away from your child’s reach.

Child proofing every corner of your house before your baby learns to self-move is as important as taking care of their day-to-day care needs. It will help you keep your baby safe and allow them to excel at their mobility skills while you chill and stay at peace.
