Baby Proofing Checklist

Baby Proofing Checklist
May 11, 2016 Melissa Bauman

Life can be crazy, and then you throw having a baby into the mix and it gets even crazier. Babies are these perfect little beings, who bring so much joy to our lives, but they also seem to be programmed to get into trouble and get into things that are hazardous to their well being. With children, at one point or another, you realize that instead of constantly chasing them and saying no when they go toward the electrical socket, it may be a better idea to just proof every room!


We found some great suggestions of what to add to your “Baby Proofing Checklist” from HelloBee and gives a good idea of where to start when baby proofing your home.

  1. bath spout cover
  2. nonslip bath mat
  3. toilet lock
  4. corner guards for sharp edged furniture
  5. outlet plugs and/or sliding outlet plates
  6. power strip covers
  7. cabinet locks
  8. drawer locks
  9. safety gates
  10. anti-tip straps for flat screen tvs
  11. cord shorteners for blinds and curtains
  12. window locks
  13. door locks
  14. oven latch
  15. oven knob covers

Let’s get real… this list could go on and on and on. Having children brings so many new things, by baby proofing you can hopefully minimize some of the potential dangers or injuries that your child could face! Thank you HelloBee for sharing this!
