You’ve been anticipating, for months, the birth of your child and it’s finally time to bring home the newest addition to your family. In addition to decorating the nursery, searching for deals on clothing that can survive a spit-up attack, and stocking up on cloth diapers, you’ll want to make sure your home is baby proofed to keep your infant – and soon-to-be toddler – safe. While you can find coupons and deals in most parenting magazines, keeping your baby safe should be your number one priority.
Every year in the United States, around 22 million children are injured inside their homes and in their yards. Nine out of ten of these accidents can be prevented if you practice household safety. You want to start babyproofing your home in the nursery, but be aware of other dangerous locations in your home. If there is a potentially deadly spot in your house, your baby will find it – once he starts crawling around. So, always be on guard and keep your baby safe at all times.
