With a baby around, safety becomes a top priority. We listed down 10 of the basic baby proofing tips that you need to consider permanently in your home to ensure your baby’s safety.
1. Cover your Outlets.
Electrical outlets are extremely dangerous. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 70 percent of child-related electrical accidents occur at home, when adult supervision is present. Modern homes have too many outlets to leave shock up to chance.
The solution: Plug up all (and we mean all) outlets with cheap plastic outlet covers. Keep some spares on hand when you visit others. In addition, remember to unplug all reachable chargers, even when they’re not in use. Babies love to grab chargers and yank. A side benefit—you’ll save electricity; any time chargers are plugged in, electricity flows through them.
