Let’s talk safety. Whether you’re preparing to welcome baby or you’ve got an increasingly curious tot on your hands, safety should always be top of mind. Tackle your safety checklist with our Baby Safety Guide, providing perfect room-by-room baby safety solutions, tips, and recommendations.
If you’ve got a wandering toddler on your hands, it’s important to make sure that all accessible cabinets have locks. You’ll also want to remove all harmful chemicals (cleaning products, insect sprays, air freshners, etc.) from bottom cabinets. Even with locks, keeping these things far out of reach is the safest choice. As your child gets older, so will there knack for making things fall over. Secure all appliances (refrigerators included) with wall mounts and latches, and don’t forget stove knob covers. You should also nix decorative items like placemats and tablecloths. If your child tugs hard enough, everything will come tumbling down. (Ouch.) Let’s just avoid that altogether.
In this case, cute, soft, and cuddly equate to a serious threat. Although absolutely adorable, stuffed animals and soft bedding and pillows can be harmful to newborns and babies. A firm crib mattress is best, and you should always ensure that toys and accessories are removed before bedtime. Doorstoppers are important as your baby starts to explore, while bed rails will prevent even the most raucous sleeper from falling out of bed. And don’t forget to secure anything that may tip over (think dresser drawers) with latches or mounts. To create peace of mind, enlist the help of a baby monitor: from breathing and movement monitors to video WiFi baby monitors. We really love the innovative options from Motorola, VTech, and Summer Infant.
Bath time can (and should) be a fun time for all. In order to keep it safe, be sure to follow a few simple rules. You'll want to use an infant tub with contours that keep it from slipping, and fill that tub with just enough water to cover your baby's legs. Then, choose a soft spout cover to protect baby's head in the event of a slip. Beyond the bath, you'll want to install toilet seat locks to keep baby out. Finally, be sure to move cleaning agents and other potentially hazardous items (like mouthwash) out of reach, or store in a locked cabinet.
There's so much to explore, and you, of course, want to encourage their love of discovery. Here's how to keep things safe (and still a ton of fun). Once your baby is 6 months old, be sure to use broad-spectrum SPF in combination with wide-brimmed hats, bonnets, and other protective clothing. Also make sure your tot wears a helmet whenever they're on a bike, trike, or ride-on. At the playgrond, keep your eyes open for potential hazards (like hot slides or broken equipment), and always be prepared for the unexpected. We like to keep Band-Aids, wet wipes, and hand sanitizer in our bags just in case.
