Baby-Proofing Your Home

While anticipating the arrival of a newborn in the house, parents may prepare for every item from their checklist, but they often forget to take care of one important part of bringing a baby home: making the house safe for the coming little one. This especially happens with first-time parents as the ones who already have infants at home tend to have already taken care of all the baby-proofing measurements early-on. 

Along with providing surveillance to the baby, it is also important to make sure the baby isn’t, directly or indirectly, exposed to any unsafe or toxic environment inside the house. While strict baby proofing may not be mandatory, it is necessary to create a safe environment for the baby so that you don’t have a panic attack every single time you’re focusing on something else rather than the baby. 

Have a look at these Baby Safety Products in order to get what you need for your baby-proofing tasks.

Basics of Baby-Proofing:

While a newborn won’t move on its own for a while, some babies start crawling as early as seven months. This means you can’t exactly delay baby-proofing until the very last minute. Get an early head start so that when your baby does start experimenting on crawling and touching stuff around the house, they won’t end up harming themselves in the process.

Socket Covers

One of the first things a baby’s curiosity is aroused towards is electric sockets and switches. They simply can’t stop themselves from putting their tiny fingers inside the socket holes and getting a shock in return. I’ve seen a few babies who have learned a lesson not to touch the sockets through their own practical experience of doing so, but it’s better to keep them safe than make them sorry for their experiments. Because a minor shock may be a lesson, but there have been increasing reports of infant death by electrocution which needs to be looked into by all authorities. 

Babies get increasingly fascinated by electric sockets from the age of crawling. Make sure all your electric sockets are covered so that the baby doesn’t have access to touching them. Have a look at this Socket Cover with Key for your baby proofing needs.

Carbon and Fire Detectors

If your house has an attached garage and/or you use gas and oil appliances and equipment, it’s recommended that you have carbon monoxide detectors installed in the house. Apart from that, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers are a must-have for every household. It’s not just for the baby but for your own safety as well. If you haven’t been committed to safety before, now would be the perfect time to get started.

Table Corner Guards

The most common injuries acquired by children are ones they get through getting hit by table corners. I can certainly vouch for those. The most severe of these injuries occur in the form of lip, forehead, head and jaw wounds but other parts of the body don’t have them easy either. In this case, Table Corner Guards will be highly effective for providing safety to the infants. 

They’re easy to apply, gentle for the baby on impact, and provide a subtle outlook without ruining your furniture’s style. Take a look at Silicone Safety Guards to satisfy your demands.

Window Locks

Window locks are important to be installed in a house with infants. They love playing with windows, closing and opening them over and over again. This creates a risk of getting their hand caught in the window and ending in serious injuries. It also gives way for mosquitoes to enter the house at times when you’d rather the window be closed. The baby can climb outside the window risking their fall. Effective Window Locks in place prevent kids from all these and other scenarios that can be a risk to their well-being, and life as a whole.

Door and Cabinet Locks

Babies are always curious about looking through drawers and cabinets and throw out all the stuff being stored there, just for the sake of it. This also puts them at risk of injuring their tiny sensitive hands and fingers. For this purpose, Cabinet Protectors do a good job of ensuring safety for the baby and making you feel comfortable when the baby roams around exploring your wardrobe in detail.

Door Stoppers

We’ve heard quite a few horrifying tales of injuries for adults and infants alike, as a result of their hands being caught in the middle of slamming doors. Door Stoppers make the impact slower by preventing the door from slamming, which keeps the baby and even others safe from getting seriously wounded because of a severe impact.

Secure all the Heavy Objects

Baby’s start practicing rolling over, crawling and walking after the 5-6 month mark. For this purpose, they get their support by holding on to cupboards, tables, and chairs, etc. Therefore, it is important to keep all the heavy objects stored in a different room to which the baby doesn’t have access to ensure nothing falls on the baby’s head and result in severe injuries. Also, any wobbly cupboards and chairs, etc that are easy to fall should be kept out of the child’s reach. 

Keep Chemicals and Soaps Out of Reach

Babies are extra-curious toward tasting soap, detergents and washing pods. Their delightful odor and powdered and colorful forms rouse the baby’s interest and he may end up wanting to taste them. It’s important to keep any kind of chemicals and detergents, shampoos and soaps out of the child’s reach so that they don’t end up eating them or throwing them over themselves. 

This also means any kind of hair oil or lotion you have that is kept at a spot easily accessible to the baby. The last thing you need is for your little one to spoil themselves and their clothes with oil and lotion.

Baby proofing the home is an important task. This doesn’t only protect the baby from any harm, but also makes your job easier; once the apartment is properly babyproof, you won’t have to worry about letting the baby go around freely exploring around the house. To make this an even safer measure, buy a tiny nursery for the baby where he can be put in to play on his own when you or the baby’s caregiver at any moment is busy performing house chores. Keep any tiny, swallow-able toys away from the little one to avoid choking hazards. 

All of this may not mean you can let the baby go without monitoring him, but it does make most of your worries stop from taking any practical shape. For more information on this and other topics, visit Little Angel Baby Clothes.
