Bathroom Toilets


Bathtubs may be the first thing that comes to mind when babyproofing your bathroom, but don't forget the toilet. It takes very little water for a child to drown, and a toilet is the perfect height for a little one to pull himself up into standing position. Children can also fall in if they are reaching for a toy or object they may have dropped in there.

Don't leave your child unsupervised in the bathroom, even for just a short amount of time. Also, installing a toilet lock that automatically locks the lid when it is down will help prevent your child from pulling the lid up and falling in.
