As a parent who has survived the baby years, a common question I get asked a lot is about how we went about baby-proofing our home.
The difference between our first and second child was quite different. The reason, we learned what was actually needed. Making baby safety a priority is a no-brainer for new parents, grandparents, friends or anyone who will be taking care of the little ones.
But what should be the focus?
My advice, don’t turn your home into a prison or obstacle courses and barriers. You really should never have the baby out of sight other than sleeping, so gating up the house seems like a bit much.
Think of your senses when putting together your baby safety plan. Sight, sound, taste, smell and touch.
