New baby on the way? Get your home ready!
There’s so much to do to get everything ready to welcome a newborn; from the essentials (baby clothes, baby toiletries, baby furniture) to babyproofing your home to keep your child safe.
Remember, babyproofing your living space is as important as having all the baby essentials ready. So, here are five tips to help you babyproof your home:
For the first few months, the baby crib is where your baby will be spending the most time at — napping during the day and sleeping at night. As a safety precaution, always place cushions or mattress around the crib. Make sure to do this, especially when your baby starts crawling and climbing.
A coffee table’s edges, for instance, is about the same height as toddlers, and they could easily bump into it when they start learning how to walk. So, always keep a lookout for these sharp edges. Cover every sharp furniture edges with padding and tape.
No grown-up toys allowed.
Always store dangerous tools such as needles, scissors, glassware and blades away from your child. A great tip for this is to hide them in one place, such as in a high cabinet. For bigger tools and hobby gears, consider storing them in a locked room, or better, store them in a self-storage unit.
A slippery floor is not cool.
Never procrastinate to clean up after a spill and always put aside toys after each play. Keep your floor dry all the time to prevent an accident. Not only this is a good habit for creating a safe space, but it is also a habit that will ensure a hygienic living space for your little ones and yourself.
A clutter-free home is NOT a fantasy.
Indeed, the clutter-free rooms that you see in magazines are achievable even with a baby in your home. In addition to enjoying a spacious living space, babyproofing your home eliminates potential danger.
