Baby proofing and DIY

Baby proofing is not a one-time procedure, but an adopted way of life.

You can help keep your family safe by removing dangerous objects that your baby could easily come into contact with when crawling, for example poisonous plants, washing liquid, bleaches, and other items you keep on the floor or in low cabinets. You can also prevent accidents by asking visitors to leave their purses or jackets out of your child’s reach to avoid them getting a hold of prescription medication, lighters, cigarettes, or other everyday objects that could be dangerous if found by a baby.
You can lock doors to rooms that hold potential hazards, keep electrical cords and blind cords tied up to avoid choking incidents, and also adjust the water temperature to make sure the hot water doesn’t scald your child.

There are many things that can be done by a parent to avoid putting your child in danger, but certain things, such as installing baby gates on stairs or around pools, plexiglas on banisters, child safety locks and furniture straps, are a bit more complicated to put in place by yourself.
Products such as child safety gates and safety locks for example, not only come in different shapes and sizes, but in order to safely carry out their purpose, they need to be properly installed. From experience, when such tasks are attempted by non professional, the device is either set up wrong, and is therefore useless, or the walls and furniture are left with extensive damage.
