While there is nothing more urgent for you than your child’s safety, they are forever enchanted to explore exciting places and objects in your home – some safe, some not.
We understand your plight to be chasing around your little one everywhere. But that’s not the solution, right?
Here are a few tips to childproof your home and keep your children safe as they learn and grow.
Kids are prone to hold all furniture edges and end up hurting themselves. Get some foam edge guards for sharp corners of the dining table, center table, bedside table, cabinets or any other sharp furniture. Just keep all the fragile and potentially dangerous objects out of their reach and be sure to be tension free!
Make sure you keep all the candles in your home locked away as kids are likely to chew on a lose candle and choke on the wax.
Also, keep all the flammable things away. You don’t want your child to accidentally set things on fire.
TV stands are somehow a child’s favorite place to climb up. This increases the chances of your TV set falling super high. So take a little extra precaution and wall mount your TV immediately to avoid the mess. Easy tip- Anchor your TV stand with the help of an industrial-strength Velcro strap through air vent holes.
Open windows are the most dangerous things for a crawling or walking toddler. Make sure your windows either have a guard, or the windows do not open more than 3 inches. If the window is low to the floor, a grill or a guard is a must!
Although this doesn’t seem like a problem, there are extremely high chances of that your child may fall into the commode. Adding to the fact that kids aged from 1 to 4 are the curious most, keep them safe from such accidents. Do get a swing shut toilet lock to avoid your child from opening the toilet seat.
