How to Baby Proof a New Home

If you are looking to baby proof a new home, the first step is to get the right products and ideas in your head. Think about what you have and what you should be protecting them from! In addition to those ideas, keep these in mind when you are looking to baby proof a home:

  • Make Things Inaccessible to Them: Eventually, babies become toddlers. Once they start walking, it’s all over- they will be curious and get into everything! The best thing you can do is make things inaccessible to them. Keep drawers/cabinets/toilet lids locked with child locks. This is the first step to keeping them safe!
  • Get the Right Tools: Baby proofing your home starts with having the right tools! If you are moving into a new home, take a look at some tools you can incorporate into your moving process. Child looks, rubber stops to make the corners of cabinets soft, etc. There are many sites that cater towards audiences that need these tools!
  • Set Up a Play Room: Let’s face it- babies are messy. If you are choosing to move into a new home, make sure you get a home that has a play room! A play room can be the perfect place for your child to grow, in a safe environment.
