Start from the bigger things

Let's focus on a microwave or any electrical appliances in the approach of your kid. Put all these things in upper cabinets or shelves. If you have electrical heater or gas appliances, try to keep them out of range for your kid. Today’s kids are very active and they have many ideas to access the things they like. So you have to think from all aspects when you are buying any new thing for your home. Let's discuss all the areas and aspects where you should have to apply security and safety gear to avoid any type of incident and inconvenience.

·         Living room

The nightmare of living rooms is having furniture with sharp edges. Most toddlers jump at the bed which results in any injury because of collision with the sharp end or falling from the sofa or bed. Buy stick-on corner cards at the edge, it will reduce any accidents. And also try to buy the furniture that has a round shape rather than square or rectangular. Door jammers and baby monitoring cameras should be present in every single room to protect them. Put drawer and cabinet lockers that are adjustable and you can also disable them when needed.

 

·         Kitchen

Most dangerous items for kids are easily available in a kitchen. Make sure you put knives and other cutting accessories, and delicate crockery out of the range of crawling/ walking kids. If you have an open kitchen, then you should take some important precautionary measures to stop your mobile child to wander around in the kitchen and getting in contact with dangerous items. First of all, buy baby-proof cabinet locks, especially magnetic ones. You can also put the lock on the refrigerator. The second main thing is the stove knob cover, it will prevent your kid from accidentally turning on the burner. These gas stove switch covers will help you a lot and you will not regret buying them.

 

·         Baby playing room

The baby nursery should be designed in a way that it doesn’t have any harmful objects in it. For example, if the baby diaper/cloth changing table is not in use now then pack it up or your walking/crawling toddler will try to climb on it. Put a thick carpet, if your toddler falls he will not get easily injured. A home security baby monitoring camera should be placed. If there are any stairs then place foldable safety barriers. For hour kid sleep alone then you can also put a night vision video monitoring camera for their sleep analysis.

 

·         Laundry area

The door to the laundry and bathroom should be closed and locked for crawling and walking babies. The poisonous cleaning agents are present here so put door lock and jammers and everything should be organized in cabinets. These cabinets should be out of reach of small kids.

A toddler spends most of his time at home exploring new things and discovering home items. So you must put them in safe places and keep an eye on your kid either through mobile monitoring or CCTV cameras.

One another important thing for a crawling baby is knee pads and hand gloves. So his knees and hands will not get hurt while crawling. Make sure to put a vest harness on your toddler, when you are taking him outside with you. All these safety gears are an essential part of your and your baby’s life. Do not think and don’t compromise on the safety and security of your little ones.
