How To Babyproof Your Home

Person - How To Babyproof Your Home

While babies tend to sleep a lot when they are newborns and have restricted movement, this will change very quickly, and before you know it, they'll be crawling and walking all-around your home. Babies tend to be quite adventurous during their crawling stage and as parents we want to make sure they don’t fall into dangerous situations. In such circumstances, it's better to be safe than sorry, which is why it's important to babyproof your home before your child becomes mobile, and we have some helpful tips that can point you in the right direction when it comes to protecting your child by identifying danger zones in your home.

Staircases

If you have a staircase in your home, it can become a falling hazard for your child if they are crawling, which is why the staircase needs to be fitted with childproof gates that prevent them from going up or down the stairs. The Safety 1st Easy Install Metal Baby Gate with Pressure Mount Fastening provides the ultimate protection for your child and prevents them from entering areas that are dangerous for them. The pressure mount fastening can even be tightened over time to ensure the gate is secure and doesn’t budge when your toddler tries to open the door.


Doors and Windows

Doors and windows are attractive to toddlers looking to explore as they inspire their curiosity. It is essential to childproof their windows by installing window restrictors that allow them to open slightly for ventilation without giving your child enough space to squeeze through and hurt themselves. For doors, you can secure the handles by using childproof door locks such as the Safety 1st OutSmart Child Proof Door Lever Handle Lock, which does not allow the door to open, and it even comes with a decoy button to outsmart your toddler to keep them out of certain rooms in your home.  


Cupboards

Once babies learn how to crawl and walk, they will start grabbing things and opening cupboards to see what's inside. This can be a cause for concern as you might store dangerous items such as cutlery or harmful chemicals like bleach or surface cleaners that toddlers should not get into. The solution to your cupboard woes is installing babyproofing chords such as the Safety 1st Custom Fit All Purpose Strap that is strong and foolproof enough to prevent toddlers from getting into your cabinets and cupboards.


Furniture

Furniture items such as tables, specifically low-lying tables, such as nightstands and coffee tables, can be unsafe for toddlers as they often have sharp corners that can hit an unsuspecting child and hurt them. To babyproof furniture items with sharp edges, we recommend using corner guards such as Safety 1st Clearly Soft Edge Bumpers. The strong and easy to use adhesive strips cushion hard corners, and they can be cut to suit the size of your furniture while also protecting your baby from scrapes and bruises.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
