Babies love to explore, and Oscar is no different, he loves to climb, to open draws and to try and reach for things he shouldn’t. I’m so pleased to bring you Baby Proofing on a Budget courtesy of Coupon Chief; it has all baby proofing must-haves.
With everyone spending more time at home, it’s important to be sure your house is safe for your baby. It doesn’t matter if you’re a first-time parent or a seasoned pro – baby proofing your house is a must! To help you, Coupon Chief created an animated guide with tips and tricks for baby proofing your home on a budget.
Baby Proofing by Age
You’ll need to adapt your baby proofing strategy over time to compensate for your growing little one. Here are some of the most important things to do as your baby grows and develops.
- Newborn: Remove any excess bedding from your baby’s crib. Blankets, pillows, and crib bumpers can all put your baby at risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
- Crawling: Remove dangerous objects at your baby’s eye level, including covering electrical outlets, pet toys, and other small items.
- Standing: Cover the sharp corners of coffee tables and bookshelves to protect your baby’s head as they begin to stand.
- Walking: Secure doors and lock cabinets to keep your curious little one out of trouble.
Top Baby Proofing HacksLock cabinet doors with hair ties. A hair tie can be wrapped around cabinets with knobs and a yardstick can be wedged into pull handles to prevent access. This will protect babies and toddlers from sharp objects, heavy pots, and cleaning supplies.
