440-062414Unlike adults, babies love to move around and hold onto things, some of which may dangerous. Whether your baby is crawling or walking, you have to ensure that the environment in which they are interacting is safe. Maintaining a safe environment requires dedication and watchfulness on your part. Below are some of the ways in which you can enhance the safety of your home:

Remove items that could be falling hazards

Leaving things lying around could easily make your little one trip and fall. Ensure that if you have stairs that they are cleared of any clutter, and are well lit. Under rugs and mats, you need to put non-slip pads that will prevent the babies from sliding when they step on them.

Install cordless blinds

Blinds can be dangerous if they have cords that are hanging loose. The babies can either be strangled by the loose cords or they can start dangling and when these cords snap, they may fall and injure themselves. As part of safety measures, you can install cordless blinds or better still blinds that have concealed cords. Ensure that there is no furniture near the windows because the babies can easily use them to climb to the windows and they may end up hurting themselves.

Protect sharp corners to avoid head injuries

On your tables and desks, you can attach corner-and-edge protectors which can prevent the baby from slipping and falling.

Protect from electrical shocks

Children are fascinated by all kinds of things, one of those being those strange holes in the wall, that we adults know are dangerous electrical sockets. You can easily protect your little one and prevent them from accidents involving electrical shocks by using socket covers.
