How much you baby proof will depend on the nature of your home, the contents of your home considered to be dangerous, your attitude to parenting and even how much curiosity your baby has. Is your house is teaming with clutter and knick-knacks? Perhaps you have a steep staircase or a home study full of electronic gadgets. If this is the case then you’d probably want to start baby proofing like there’s no tomorrow.
There are a few steps you can take to make sure you cover and take care of all possible dangers:
Clearly identify the danger spots in your home, such as, fireplaces, staircases, and steep steps, large expanses of glass and low set windows. You’ll need to childproof these as soon as your baby starts to move around the room. It is recommended that you use locks and latches on cupboards and drawers that store hazardous materials such as bleach or other cleaning chemicals. These locks can be self adhesive or will need screwing onto the cupboards, whichever one you use they both are as effective as each other.
