Constant Supervision

You can baby proof your home as much as you want, but what will keep your baby safe is making sure they are under constant supervision. You never want to leave a baby alone unless they are safely enclosed in their crib or pack and play. It is always a good idea to keep emergency numbers on hand as well has the basics when it comes to medicines and first aid.

Create Safe Areas

You don’t necessary have to baby proof every area of the house. This is hard and nearly impossible. Instead you can create safe areas within your home that your baby will reside in. These usually consist of their bedroom and living room. Make sure the area is free of any attainable toxins, electrical cords, fragile items, and is gated appropriately. It helps to get down on their level and view items that could possibly be within their reach.

Store your Breakables

The best way to keep your family heirlooms and breakable items safe is by storing them in a storage unit at A1 Access Storage in South Salt Lake. Placing your items in a storage unit will save you from having to find a place in your home for them, and hoping your little one doesn’t find a way to get it.

Kitchens and Bathrooms

Kitchens and bathrooms are the most dangerous places for little ones to be. We store a large amount of cleaning supplies in both areas. The kitchen is often a place where little hands can get burned and into a lot of items they shouldn’t be. Keep the kitchen off limits with the help of a baby gate. Use cupboard latches and keep the door closed in your bathrooms.
