We were recently asked the question, “should I babyproof my hotel room?”  Our answer?  Absolutely!

  • When arriving at a hotel, babyproof the room first by:
    • Moving dangerous items including coffee pots, toiletries, hair dryers, and dry cleaning bags out of reach.
    • Ask that tables with sharp edges are removed, or cover them with a shield table cushion.
    • Cover exposed electrical outlets.
    • Tie up loose blinds and cords and install removable cabinet locks.
    • Make sure that all furniture and TV’s are properly secured to the walls.

If you have any concerns about the safety of your room, be sure to address them with hotel management!
