Baby proofing a Play Room

The play room is probably the area of the house in which your child will spend most of his awake time, so it’s important that it be baby proofed well enough to allow your baby the freedom to explore the world without the fear of him coming across something that may harm him.

First of all start by installing blind cleats to keep cords away from reach as children could easily get them wrapped around their necks, or chew on them. Same thing applies to cords from phones, or other small appliances with plastic wire ties. Babies are smarter than one may think, and they quickly figure things out, so place a secondary protection on windows, such as locks or guards, and install self-closing outlets on frequently used outlets and all outlets with something plugged into it. Install a Carbon Monoxide Sensor and make sure that once your baby is placed in his play room, there is no way for him to get out of that space without your knowledge.
