Babies are absolute miracles, and there is nothing more joyful and rewarding than watching them grow. From the very moment they are born, parents anticipate at what age their newborn will grow strong enough to sit up, crawl, and walk. As exciting as it is to witness your baby zigzag the house solo, this recently discovered independence comes with a whole host of trouble and complication! However, unattended newly mobile babies can cause considerable destruction to both themselves and your house. Therefore, ensuring your home is suitably secured before your bundle is on the move is essential for protection and safety. Babyproofing is a project that can feel daunting and overwhelming, but rest assured following this checklist will keep the job simple and straightforward.

1. Be Observant

Even before children become mobile, be uber observant of their surroundings. Never leave your baby alone, even if he or she has yet to show signs of movement. Further, maintain your first aid certifications, and remember to always post emergency numbers throughout the house in the event of an accident.

As your babies grow older, they begin to understand your cautionary warnings. Even though it might seem like they don’t understand, babies are incredibly astute. Indicate to them that the oven is hot and the buttons on your solar battery are off-limits. These house rules will sink in sooner than you think!

2. Maintain Safe Spaces

Babyproofing your entire house is an undoubtedly intimidating task. That said, initiate the project by securing only the rooms where your child spends the most time. Their bedroom and the family room are great places to start, and baby gates are a perfect way to enclose these rooms temporarily.

Make sure these areas are free from electrical harm by covering the reachable outlets. Additionally, ensure all furniture and shelving are secure and unable to be moved or dismantled. Finally, cover sharp corners and hard edges with soft material to protect your delicate infant from injury.

Once these havens are secure, allow your youngster to roam freely and experiment with this newfound portability. Remain vigilant as a parent, but give your tot freedom to learn and experiment unassisted.

3. Hide Breakables

Decorative objects elevate the style of a home. Family heirlooms add a personal touch that is impossible to replicate. Unfortunately, these valuables are easy targets for speedy, crawling babes. Until your children are old enough to resist your fragile, sentimental decor, store your treasures in areas that are out of their reach.

4. Tuck Away Toxins

Take a walk around your house, and lock away substances that could potentially harm your baby. Many products such as cleaning agents, medication, and alcohol contain toxins that are unsafe and potentially poisonous if ingested by an infant. Therefore, while you have tiny tots crawling around your home, ensure these products are locked and out of reach.

5. Beware of Problem Areas

Remain acutely aware of specific problem areas around your home. Ensure that all doors and windows are closed and locked, and carefully secure all loose cords attached to your window coverings.

The kitchen is a potentially dangerous location for a toddling youngster, so be sure that knives are unreachable and all cooking pots’ handles face inward. Babyproof the knobs on both the stove and the oven to avoid accidental ignition!

In the bathrooms, attach a lock to all toilet seat covers, blocking your tot from accessing the toilet water. Keep all cleaning supplies locked or out of reach, and be sure to cover the bath spout with a soft, protective pad. Reduce the potential for drowning by never leaving your baby in the bathroom alone!

On-the-go babies can get their hands, mouths, or feet on just about anything; they are capable of the unimaginable and often cause harm in the blink of an eye. Babyproof your home before your child becomes mobile to reduce the risk of injury or destruction. Hopefully, these simple tasks make securing your home quick and painless!
