Ongoing Childproofing


Childproofing your home isn't just a one-time chore. As your child gets older, more hazards may present themselves. When your child grows taller, he may bang his head on sharp corners or edges that are higher up, and you will need to do a second pass to secure any objects that used to be out of your child's reach.

Another tip is to get down to your baby's level. Being on your hands and knees can give you a new perspective and can help you babyproof an area of your home you missed earlier. And always remember, supervision is the best way to keep your child safe.
