The safety of your child

by Kimberly Schoobaar on December 26, 2020

Accident is in a small corner. You naturally want to create the safest possible environment for your child. In this blog I will give you some tips.

The first steps

From the moment your child takes its first steps, safety is a priority. Babies are born with curiosity. They want to grab and grab everything. And when they start walking, they will want to go anywhere.

Home safety

If you want to make sure your home is 'baby safe', you have to put yourself in the place of your baby. What Would a Baby Do? What would a baby like to hold? That is why there are certain things that you should pay extra attention to;

  • Sharp angles. When babies learn to crawl and walk, their balance is still very shaky. Which makes them fall quickly. So make sure you use silicone corners for the sharp corners of a coffee table, for example.
  • Windows. If your baby can walk, they are sure to be curious about what's out there that could make them fall out the window. You can use window protectors for this, for example.
  • Free standing furniture. These are very common in a home. Think, for example, of lamps, tables and decoration. If your little one starts walking, they will also pull themselves up on things, so there is a good chance that it will fall on the little one. Therefore, put your loose furniture as high as possible, where your child absolutely cannot reach. Or remove it from your home.

Dangers in the home

Stairs are a big part of a baby and toddler's curiosity. They will therefore certainly be curious about what can be found below and above. Because they are so small, the steps are still too high for their legs. That's why it's useful to have aclimbing gateto be placed above and / or at the bottom of your stairs, so that they cannot fall off. In this way they are prevented from walking up or down or crawling. Fireplaces are also a very big danger. When it is bright or bright, babies are quickly interested and will tend to reach for it. You can use a flex system gate use. It BabyDan Flex System Gate is a multifunctional gate and can be used as a stair gate, door gate or as a shield for the fireplace. The system is easy to assemble.

Different spaces to pay attention to

Kitchen:

  • Store cleaning products well and preferably as high as possible.
  • Be careful with the things you put on the counter.
  • Put electrical devices out of reach to grab. Be careful of the cords of a device.

Living room:

  • Make sure that all sharp corners in the living room, such as tables, are covered with a corner protector.
  • If you have plants in the house, make sure that they are high or in a place where they cannot reach. Children often want to pull the leaves.
  • Secure all outlets. Even where they cannot easily reach. Children often find a way.

Bathroom:

  • If you have a bath, use a non-slip mat. If your child stands in the bath, they will not slip.
  • Never leave your child alone in the bathroom. The stones in a bathroom are very hard and smooth. So they can fall faster.
  • Make sure your child cannot reach the tap.
