Child Proofing Tips for Christmas

Enjoying Christmas through your kid’s eyes is one of the greatest joys of the season. If you have a curious child in your house, Christmas trimmings become ten times more complicated. Keep the viewpoint of your little one in mind while decorating for Christmas. It will help you to avoid unintentional hazards.

In this blog we have discussed about some Christmas baby proofing tips to prevent your house from accidents.<?p>

Replace glass ornaments with resistant ones

Try to use unbreakable ornaments for the decoration of Christmas tree instead of glass ornaments. When a glass ornaments breaks it spreads into millions of pieces and it is impossible to find each and every piece. If you are using glass ornaments then you should keep them at the top of the tree to keep them away from kids reach.

Secure your tree well

Use extra tie down to Christmas tree to make it baby safe to prevent from tip over hazards. You can also use bricks or other heavy material to weigh down your tree stand. If you are using artificial Christmas tree than make sure that it is fire rated and if you opt for a real one, make sure that it is fresh.

Wires should be Dangerous

Kids are mostly attracted towards wires. To block kids to access wires, cover them with wire covers or minimize the strands hanging all around the house.

Replace Decoration Hooks with Ribbons

If you are using resistant stuffs for decoration, you have to hang them. Avoid using the hooks as they can pose a serious choking risk. In place of hooks, you can use ribbons to prevent risks.

Use outlet covers and never leave baby unsupervised

During the time of festivals, lights are one of the main decoration items. So make sure that you have used plastic covers on all unused electrical outlets and never leave your baby all alone near the tree or holiday decorations.

Put other decorations on tables or up high

Put the decoration material on the table or hang up around the house to keep your kids away from them. Not only will it help to keep kids away but also it will help to make cleaning easier before and after those inevitable holiday gatherings.

Vacuum right after you put up the tree and finish decorating

You should vacuum immediately after finishing the whole decoration of the tree to avoid any craziness like kids eating a Christmas bell or small ornament.

Christmas tree should be placed out of the reach of kids

Christmas tree should be placed in the lesser used room like in the study room where one can see the tree but it is not easily accessible. If you place the Christmas tree in the middle of a child’s play-space, it will attract little one and it tries to access it. If you are placing tree in the central location of your house you can use safety gates to make it inaccessible for the kids.

After the whole preparations of Christmas take a tour of your home and see the things form your kids view point to make sure that you didn’t miss anything.

Many people put-off baby proofing because they do not have the time- there is absolutely no excuse for that. I have taken care of patients who have their babies fall down stairs, choke on door stoppers, and pull down furniture onto themselves. This can be prevented. And the service is very affordable- the only additional cost versus doing it yopurself is the labor cost.Thank you to Baby Safe Homes for providing an excellent service to me and my patients.

Hi all. I just wanted to let you know that we recently used Baby Safe Homes to childproof our house. More than a few friends referred us to this company and I can’t speak highly enough it. They came to our house for a consultation, made recommendations, and did immediate installation. He was very honest and didn’t pressure us to buy or install anything we didn’t feel we needed to. If you have an infant ready to crawl (as we do) I’d highly recommend Baby Safe Homes.

Thank you very much for making my house a safer place for my twin girls. You did a wonderful job! Everything works great, and I’m starting to appreciate all the devices even more as the girls get better at getting into things. I will certainly recommend Baby Safe Homes to all of my friends with kids and my patients.

Baby Safe Homes was an absolute pleasure to work with. I felt so overwhelmed by the process of babyproofing I procrastinated until my 8 month old was on the go. Within a few short days of my initial call Baby Safe Homes came out, gave me the guidance I needed, and proofed my entire house with top of the line products all within a 2 1/2 hour period. I can actually get more done now without constantly stopping to chase my son!

Thank you for helping us babyproof our new home. I loved that you gave us all the options and didn’t push anything on us and allowed us to pick what we felt was necessary. Also, I couldn’t believe how quick everything was finished. Within a few days of speaking with you, you came out and installed everything in just 2 hours! Our stair gates look and work great! I wish I had heard of you before and I will definitely recommend you to all of my family and friends. Thanks again.
