Once you assume the role of a parent, your responsibilities towards your family especially your baby increases. When you have your small baby or toddler living with you there are certain necessary modifications that you have to do in your home to make it secure for your baby or toddler. The house should be organized in such a way that the safety of your child is guaranteed. A normal house generally consists of a lot of hazards. Therefore it is essential to adopt some baby-proof measures in your home to make it a safe haven for your newborn or toddler.
Firstly ensure that the baby is able to access only limited areas of your home. Babies should not be allowed to move about freely in areas such as terrace, garage, gym, study room, laundry room, loft, storage room and so on. Doors giving access to all these areas must be secured with appropriate locks. All the main power outlets situated in different parts of your home should be covered and exposed wires must be hidden properly. Electrical appliances after use should be packed and stored in a safe place so that babies cannot get hold of them.
If you have stairs inside your home then use barriers so that babies or toddlers do not get access to the stairs and do not fall down. Windows should have proper railings and should be locked in case the child wants to enjoy the view outside your home. Medicines, chemicals, drugs, pesticides, insecticides etc should be kept under lock and key so that toddlers or babies cannot get their hands on them. Accompany your baby or toddler inside the bathroom and also the kitchen as these rooms are little dangerous for your toddler or baby.
Hope these measures help you create a safe baby-proof environment in your home.
