    Hello Nicole Johnson, thank you for sharing such an informative blog with us. As my daughter is growing, she is becoming profoundly active and quite naughty too. Once she was just about to put her fingers in an electric switch (I still get goosebumps thinking about that). My best friend recommended me to use electric safety equipment for my toddler and suggested to buy from Momnbabyplace.com. I ordered 3 baby safety cover plugs from the site. Honestly, they work like a charm. Now, I remain totally relaxed about my baby’s safety. By the way, thanks again for this amazing article.

    Nicole,
    Well summarized points. I can totally related to these. Luckily my daughter was not so much into choking things when she was a toddler. However, she did have her own adventures (almost cutting her finger in door fittings) and few others.

    One more important point can be safeguarding toddler from sharp furniture edges. I have seen kids run within the home with ultra speeds. Smooth edges furniture or some kind of cushion helps.

  3. Hi, I am Margaret Rodgers. Thanks for your awesome article. Actually, I want to add this point “Avoid Soft Objects”. Soft mattresses, loose bedding’s can increase the risk of suffocation, entrapment, or strangulation out of the crib. It is very much important for the parents coz most of the parents do not know about it.

    Great post! I did an online nanny training a few months back and recently got a job as a full-time nanny. I want to make sure that I do the best at my job, and I’m sure your tips will help with that. Thank you!

  5. As I am now well aware that a baby can climb on top of any loose furniture and get himself or herself into an accident, this made me have a few questions. Aside from getting wall straps, is buying a home system with glass or transparent plastic outer doors another way to protect them and the baby? Also, would permanently placing large furniture on the floor a way to baby-proof them as well?

      Hi Yoshiko – Thank you for writing! I am sorry, but I am not certain what the home system with glass of plastic outer doors is, so cannot comment on the safety of such. Regarding placing large furniture on the floor, this depends on the furniture in question. Things sitting on the floor can also topple over onto a child, so best to still strap everything down, or secure into the floor or walls with appropriate securing devices. Your local baby store should be able to help, and many communities offer local baby proofing services as well! Good luck and keep keeping things safe!! : )
