How to avoid preventable accidents
One of our favorite tips to give whenever someone starts the process of baby proofing a home, is that of getting down on your hands and knees to look at your surroundings from a baby’s perspective. This method can help spot what objects, for example plants or wires, need to be removed from that particular room as they are in easy reach of a child’s curious hand.
This type of exercise is extremely important and should be carried out regularly as the baby grows and evolves. In fact, according to statistics, each year approximately 6,000 children die and another 120,000 children are seriously injured or permanently disabled in the U.S alone due to PREVENTABLE household accidents, which means that keeping your baby proofing standards up to date is as essential as ever. Some dangers, for example stairs, are easier detected than the possible accidents involving the tip over of a flat screen TV or the risk of drowning brought on by leaving a bathroom door unlocked.
