6 Ways to Childproof Your Home

Ensure your child's safety at home with these childproofing devices


As they grow up, little ones love to explore --- crawling and climbing up every nook and cranny he can find. With their safety in mind, it's only fitting that you equip the home with these childproofing must-haves.

Use safety door cushions

Prevent little fingers from being slammed by doors by using a safety door cushion. Place the device over the edge of the door and keep it high above children’s reach.

Add corner guards to the tables.

Children will eventually run around the house, so sharp corners in tables become a safety hazard. Corner guards and edge protectors can easily cushion these unwanted edges.

Use locks for cabinets.

Cabinet doors will seem very interesting to a curious little kid. Keep potential hazards inside cabinets with a cabinet door lock.

Use safety outlet covers.

Puzzles are great for developing kids, but they might mistake the electrical socket for a shape-sorting game. Time to block these holes with safety outlet covers before they find a shape that can fit into them.

Install baby gates.

Designate areas in your home where the little ones can play in. Provide baby gates to keep them far from the perils of the kitchen or workshop.

Install rubber mats in their room.

Babies start to acquire their independence by walking on their own. Ensure a safe floor surface with rubber mats. Get those with colorful puzzle features to stimulate your child’s mind.
