Getting Started

The greatest way to childproof your house is to get on your hands and knees and look around. This way, you will see what a baby sees. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

Are electrical outlets covered? Are cords from electrical items or drapes hanging down so your baby can reach them? Are there any sharp corners from furnishings or other items? What small items could be a choking danger?

Outlets and Electrical Items

Electrocution is also one more danger that may be prevented. Covering electrical outlets with safety caps will prevent little one from sticking his or her fingers or additional objects in them and getting electrocuted. Ensure small appliances such as curling irons and blow dryers are unplugged and out of reach as well.

Cupboards

Keeping locks on your cupboards can prevent brood from getting into poisonous household cleaners. For All time keep medicine out of reach, still if they have child safety caps on them. Child safety caps are not certain to keep your child out.

For all time keep the number of your local poison control center helpful for emergencies. If you don't know the number, you can find it at the National Poisons Information Centre (NPIC) of cupboards must be cushioned to prevent injury to your baby when they run into them.

Blinds and Drapes Can Cause Disaster

To prevent strangulation forever make sure blind and drapes cords are out of reach. In the nursery, ensure that your baby's crib is not near any of these items.

Plastic is Dangerous!

Keep plastic substance such as garbage bags and shopping bags out of reach. They can simply cause suffocation. Keep in mind that any vinyl items such as mattress covers may also be a hazard.

Final Check

While you are checking your residence ensure baby does not have access to swimming pools, toilets and bathtubs.  Never leave buckets with water or cleaning solutions out. Bear in mind, babies may drown in less than an inch of water. Use safety gates to keep baby from falling down stairways or just to keep them confined to a particular room or area.

 Keep in mind, even the finest childproofing does not warrant leaving any baby unattended. Doing this is a great recipe for serious injuries!
