Having a new baby is a wonderful experience but it is not without its responsibilities. Every parent knows the value of keeping the home safe for their little ones, at every stage of their life. Find out how you can do so early on, with these baby-proofing provisions for your home.
Set up barriers inside the home like baby gates and fireplace screens. They work particularly well at the top and bottom of the stairs and the entrance of any doorless room within the home, especially the kitchen.
Moreover, assign a specific play area in the middle of the living room or your bedroom and set up a play fence to keep your baby in that safe spot. If you have a pool on your property, always keep the door to the area closed or install a pool fence around it.
Install Safety Devices for Doors and Windows
Keep those curious baby hands safe by making a habit of keeping doors closed inside the home. You can also install pinch guards to prevent your doors from slamming shut. We all know how painful this can be and certainly don’t want that happening to our child. You may also install a soft close door damper to prevent doors from closing fast.
Install window safety products, such as window guards and locks to keep kids from opening them, even for the windows on the first floor of your home.
Install Child Monitoring Devices
Need to work in the kitchen while the baby sleeps? Need to leave the baby with the sitter for a short time? Set up a WiFi baby monitor with audio and video that you can access through a home monitoring device or an app on your mobile device. Baby monitors are specifically designed for child safety and even have night vision so you can see baby even in a dimly lit room.
Take the worry off your mind by installing safety devices around your home and provide a safe environment for your child. Investing in your child’s safety by installing these baby-proofing equipment today.
