5 Tips When Baby Proofing {Update & Giveaway}

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial. All opinions are my own.

I did a post last year about Tips for Baby Proofing.
Child Safety Baby Proofing Advice Tips
One of the tips I gave was to look up, I also talked about how a TV mount was an ideal solution. And although I still feel like it is a great investment, it can be VERY pricey once you have paid for the mount and the proper installation.

That is why I am loving these Dreambaby's Furniture Anchors!

Dreambaby® Furniture Straps - 2 pack (L199) US$6.99
Easily to install, these heavy-duty straps help prevent flat screen TVs from dangerously tipping over onto unsuspecting young children. Attach the straps to the wall (all screws and bolts are included) or to the back of furniture they are resting on (as pictured) and remember to check the tautness of the straps from time to time to ensure their strength.

Dreambaby® Furniture Anchor (L830) US$10.79
They are ideal for securing furniture such as bookcases, dressers and cabinets to the wall with a high-strength stainless steel attachment. They are very easy to install and are perfect for use in many rooms of your house, including all living areas.

I read a story about a mother who had told her 3-year-old to go back to bed because it was too early o wake. When she did eventually wake up, she found her daughter lifeless with the dresser on top of her. So scary and could happen to anyone. It's so awful, we don't even like to think about it, but it happens.
Dreambaby® Flat Screen TV Saver (L860) US$10.79
They help prevent potentially serious accidents by securing televisions to the wall or furniture with adjustable, heavy-duty straps. Again, these are easy to install and give parents and caregivers peace of mind when little ones are at home.
According to a 2013 study by the American Academy of Pediatrics, “The number of children injured by a TV tip-over has increased 125 percent between 1990 and 2011. Each year, more than 17,000 children are treated in hospitals for TV-related injuries. That's one child every 30 minutes, and children ages five and younger are at the highest risk for injury”. Many of these accidents and injuries are minor – bruising, bumps and scrapes – they are also very preventable. Sadly, the most alarming statistic of all is that “once every three weeks in developed countries, a child is killed by a TV tip-over”.

  1. I think the "5. Look Up" tip is really important. It is much to easy for little ones to be crushed under TVs.

  2. I like #1 Get down on your child's level

  3. The curious mind to me is the most overlooked. How else do kids learn?

  4. Get down on the childs eye level is very good advice

  5. Outlet Safety.so important my sister put a key in one when she was little was ok but sparks flew out.

    I like #2. They grow and learn so fast it's smart to baby proof ahead if what they need so you get used to it being there

  7. I like the tip about looking from a child's eye level. They see things we may not notice from where they sit/stand.

  8. 2. Think About The Next Stage:

    This is brilliant. Babies will jump from crawling to walking in what seems like seconds!

  9. I like the tip about thinking ahead because babies advance so quickly and sometimes when you aren't looking!


Thank you for dropping by! I would love to hear what you thought. :)
