MAKING YOUR HOME BABY-PROOF.



MOST PARENTS ARE HOUSE- PROUD.YOU HAVE YOUR FURNITURE WELL ARRANGED AND LITTLE FITTINGS AND FIXTURES TO MAKE YOUR HOME LOOK NICE.ONCE YOU START HAVING KIDS,IT WONT BE THE SAME ANYMORE,MORE SO WHEN THEY START CRAWLING.

WHEN YOUR BABY STARTS CRAWLING, HE IS LEARNINGABOUT THE WORLD, EXPLORING BY TOUCHING, TASTING EVERYTHING THAT HE CAN GET HIS TINY HANDS ON.

AS THIS IS A HEALTHY AND NATURAL BEHAVIOUR, IT'S   VERY IMPORTANT THAT PARENTS MAKE THEIR HOMES SAFE FOR THEIR EXPLORERS.
LISTED BELOW ARE SOME WAYS TO KEEP YOUR BABYS ENVIROMENT ACCIDENT FREE ZONE-


  • ALL SOCKETS SHOULD BE COVERED FOR ALL ELECTRICAL OUTLETS AND ALL SHARP FURNITURE EDGES.SAFETY LATCHES SHOULD BE USED ON ALL LOWER CUPBOARDS.MOVE ALL CLEANING PRODUCTS TO A HIGH CABINET OUT OF REACH OF THEIR LITTLE HANDS.PUT UP A FIREGUARD.
  • ALL KNICK KNACKS, BOOKS AND PLANTS FROM SHELVES AND LOWER TABLES SHOULD BE REMOVED. THEY CAN VERY INTRIGUING.
  • CURTAINS AND BLINDS ARE VERY TEMPTING AND SHOULD BE KEPT AWAY FROM BABIES.
  • REMOVE ALL INSECT TRAPS, REPLLENTS AND POISONS ON THE FLOOR.
  • THE CARPETED FLOOR SHOULD BE CONSTANTLY KEPT CLEAN.THE BARE FLOORS SHOULD BE CONSTANTLY MOPPED AND WITH NON-HARDOUS CHEMICALS.
  • PLACE DOG, CAT FOOD AND THEIR LITTER WAY OUT OF REACH. (I PERSONALLY DONT MIX BABIES WITH PETS.)
  • MAKE SURE BUCKETS AND OTHER LIQUID CONTAINERS ARE EMPTIED BEFORE THEY CAN BE LEFT LYING AROUND.
  • LOCKS AND STOPS SHOULD BE ON THE WINDOWS AND SCREENS TO PREVENT THEM FROM BEING PUSHED OPEN.
  • MOVE INDOOR PLANTS OUT OF REACH AND FIND OUT WHICH OUTDOOR PLANTS ARE POISONOUS.
  • SAFETY GATES SHOULD BE USED ON KITCHEN DOORS, ON THE STAIRS TO PREVENT THEM FROM WANDERING INTO DANGER ZONES.

Great post. Babyproofing seems to be an ongoing thing around here. I keep finding little things I missed or didn't think of. These boys get into everything it seems, even with access to 100 toys!
