Baby Safety Month with Safety 1st + Giveaway

You may assume your child is always safe at home, but there are dangers in every room that you should look out for. Did you know September was Baby Safety Month? While you’re busy keeping your little one safe year-round, September is a great time to take a closer look at safety features in your home. No matter how your child has grown in the past year these tips are a fit for children at any stage - the crawler, the climber and even the on-foot explorer.

Child Safety Baby Proofing Advice Tips

Home Safety Tips to Remember for Baby Safety Month From the experts at Safety 1st

As a parent every month is Baby Safety Month, but with little ones growing up fast September is a great time to take a step back and make sure your home safety efforts are up to date. From the crawler to the pitter patter of little feet Safety 1st has tips to make sure your child has the freedom to explore your home safety at every age and skill level,

For The Crawler

Outlets, drawers and sharp corners. Many of the hazards in your home are below your knees and directly within a little crawlers reach. Getting down on your hands and knees to view your home from your child’s perspective is a great way to begin childproofing. Seeing the world from their view can give perspective to the potential hidden dangers in your home.

· Whether it’s the kitchen or the play room, sharp corners are inevitable. Soften the edges with Foam Edge Protectors or an Expandable Table Edge Bumper from Safety 1st.

· Outlets are another danger at eye level with your little crawler. Outlet plugs are an easy and effective way to avoid electrical dangers.

· Pay close attention to the cupboards that are the easiest for your crawler to open and make sure the items in that cupboard are safe for your child to play with – if not make sure you put a lock on it.

For The Climber

New climbers bring home safety checks to a whole new level. While we pass quickly through hallways and stairwells, they are a climber’s favorite place to play.

· A climber has to climb! It's OK to teach your child how to climb the stairs but she should only do so when you're right behind her, every step of the way.

· At the top of the stairs, always use a gate that can be installed with hardware, rather than a pressure fit gate. For the bottom of the stairwell try Safety 1st’s Lift, Lock & Swing Gate.

· Also, make sure to move potentially dangerous items out of reach, especially in the kitchen and bathroom.

· Keep toy bins away from a window. Children will find a way to climb on top of the toy bin or stack toys on top of one another to look outside. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) one of every three children required hospitalization after falling from a window.

· Secure TVs and furniture to the wall using Safety 1st Furniture Wall Straps to prevent tip-overs. These kinds of accident happen more than you might think so take a few minutes, secure your TV and furniture, and then never worry about it again.

For The On-Foot Explorer

From kitchen appliances to bathroom cabinets, the on-foot explorer loves to find trouble anywhere it is available. Walking toddlers call for undivided attention at all times - or locks, latches and covers of all sorts.

· Ovens and stoves are hot and can burn your child. It is a good idea to use the back burners of your stove whenever possible and remember to turn pot and pan handles in, and away from the edge of the stove. Reinforce with your toddler that the oven is hot and he or she should not touch it.

· Cabinets and drawers contain many hazards, such as cleaning supplies, plastic bags, breakable and sharp objects, and food that can be a choking hazard. Be sure to lock all cabinets and drawers to keep your child away from the contents. Multi-Purpose Appliance Locks and Press ‘n Pivot Latches are great for keeping hazardous items out of reach.

· Exploring is good but some adventures shouldn’t be taken without a parent. High Door Locks help keep on-foot explorers from wandering into unwanted areas.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have a very adventurous toddler who loves to explore. The one thing I still need to secure is our TV. Until then, I make sure I'm near when he is by the TV. We have told him several times not to climb onto the coffee table that it is sitting on, and he is doing a lot better following that direction. But it still makes me nervous. Thanks for the reminder to get that taken care of!

    We have baby proofed, but my toddler is into everything!!! I need a gate to keep her in one of our rooms which has an open doorway (the homeschool room)! She gets out and wants to climb on things, so I have to teach my older daughter and keep the little one occupied!

  45. I would use this gate at my house for when my niece comes to visit. She is 15 months old. I have two large dogs, and the gate would be perfect to keep them separate. Although, my doggies are friendly, they're a little too hyper for her. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  46. My brother in law is expecting his first child in April. I think this will be a must have especially since they have a lot of stair cases around. You can never be too careful when it comes to little ones, better to be safe than sorry! Thank you for the chance!

    My sister has the youngest out of my whole family. My nephew is just 4 months old. He is an active little guy though -- or should I say big guy since he is over 20 lbs. He's rolling over already so she'll have to start really baby proofing everything soon.

    ReplyDelete
