on this article

Babies and toddlers have a sneaky tendency to get into all kinds of mischief, and it’s our job to keep them safe. Here, some baby safety information to help you make sure your living space is ready for your baby.

  • Cover all unused electrical sockets so your baby doesn’t try to put her fingers in them.
  • Remove rubber tips from door stops.Your baby could try to put them in her mouth.
  • Hide cords for blinds and electrical appliances (or place them out of reach).They are a strangulation hazard.
  • Place protective padding over sharp corners, like the edges of the fireplace or coffee table, where babies and toddlers could injure themselves.
  • Install safety latches on all doors and cabinets. Store medicines and cleaning products only in cabinets your baby won’t be able to reach.
  • To keep them from falling, secure heavy items like TVs onto furniture.
  • Install safety gates at the top and bottom of the stairs.
