Time to Start Baby Proofing The Home!
Clay is officially crawling and on the move, and with that comes baby proofing our home to keep our little guy safe! I can’t believe he is crawling everywhere exploring left and right, it feels like it is too soon for him to be doing this! Before we know it he will be up walking everywhere, then I hear we are really in for a treat, haha!
As a first time parent, I knew some of these, and others I have learned as I have went, or had another expert parent share their insight with me! It is crazy all the things you look at everyday and don’t think twice about and now I zone in on every detail ensuring Clay won’t eat it or get hurt!
Make sure to get plugin protectors, latches for cabinets, extension cord holders for wires, and such. Those are for sure the basics of it, below you can shop directly to pick them up!
Magnets on The Fridge: If you have magnets on the fridge, make sure it is high enough up, they can’t reach. It is easy for them to reach and grab it and of course it goes right in their mouths!
Rug No-Slip Protector: If you have rugs in your home, you may want this non-slip grip rug protector. You just lay under your rugs to help you from slipping. This is great for laminate or wood floors. Any floor that is slippery! Also wouldn’t hurt to get some non-skid socks!
Hot water heater: Here is one I didn’t ever think about. Make sure to set your water heater under 120 degrees to protect against scalding them. You don’t want them going to wash hands and the water on straight hot and burning their skin.
