How to Babyproof Your Home

To safe guard, your little ones Use safety plugs in unused electrical outlets. Repair damaged electrical cords. Be sure and Run cords behind heavy furniture.  Invest in good, sturdy doorway gates if there are areas you wish to keep your little ones away from.

Install latches on all drawers, cupboards, closets, and cabinets.

Buffer sharp furniture corners and edges.  

Be sure to store knick-knacks away for awhile or display on high shelves because little hands always have a way of getting them.

Use knob covers for the stove, barriers that keep hands off the hot surfaces, oven and refrigerator latches.  

Dispose of plastic grocery sacks and produce wrap immediately.  

Keep important phone numbers tacked to the refrigerator.

Store all medicines above the floor in a latched cabinet and household cleaners as well.  

I have found that using non-skid tub mats or appliques helps to prevent slipping when it's bath time. It may be a good idea to use tub faucet covers to protect little hands from turning on the water.

Well, there's my list of things to do to help Babyproof your home.  Please be sure and check out the internet for more helpful ideas and places to shop when it comes to Your Precious Little Ones.
