Has your baby started crawling? Then, do take a look at 9 simple and must-own products for child and baby proofing your house today!
I still remember my first injury. I do not remember how old I was but I do remember the pain, the blood loss and the crying and wailing that had followed. I almost lost my pinky finger because of the little mishap. My hand had been on the floor and one of the room doors had slammed because of the wind. Bam! My hand crushed in the hinges and my little finger took the maximum force. Boy! Was it painful! That was the day my parents decided to install door stoppers. Lesson learnt the hard and painful way indeed.
I am sure many of you have had such little mishaps in the house while growing up. Would you like your own child to have these nightmarish experiences too? Why not prevent these from happening by taking proper steps then!
Today, TCT would like to share ten such products which if not completely but will at least abate the chances of your child getting seriously injured because of small household items.
1. Door stoppers:
My own incident should serve as an example enough as to why you need this product. If your toddler has already learnt to crawl and walk, this tops the list of childproofing products. Here are a few options we recommend from the many available ! Make them playful and colorful while you are at it so that it is appealing for your little one too!
TCT recommends: Littlegrin Baby Safety Cartoon Door Stopper (8 piece set)
2. Knee pads:
Imagine your toddler crawling on the floor and suddenly something punchy or sharp hits his knees! Not a scenario you’d like, isn’t it? Cover those active knees with these to avoid countless likely mishaps
TCT recommends: Mee Mee Baby Knee Pad
3. Power strip covers:
The power pin plugs scare me as an adult too! The electric shock is dangerous for any ages, so imagine what will happen to a child! Definitely not something you want your little one to go through. So here’s the prevention to that.
TCT recommends: Safety 1st Power Strip Cover
4. Guard for table and furniture edges:
Hand, knee and any body part banging against the sharp edges of the furniture is a likely mishap if not prevented! How to avoid this you wonder? Here is the answer:
TCT recommends: Kuhu Creations Edge and Corner Guard
5. Baby tracker:
This, in my opinion, is the best way to keep your child’s safety at bay. You will be always your baby’s whereabouts in case you are working and secondly it will help you keep track of what your little one is up to. Like the idea? Here’s how to execute it.
6. Lock for drawers and cupboards:
The way your room and bathroom doors can slam and injure your little one, in the same manner, the drawers, cupboards and cabinets could be equally ghastly. Imagine him being his playful self and opening or closing one of the drawers and his tiny little hand getting crushed if the drawer closes accidentally. Oh boy! Just thinking about it is painful. So go ahead and secure them all with these locks!
7. Rail nets:
Falling over the edge of a bed or a sofa is unfathomable. The worst kind of injuries and life-threatening situations can arise out of this one! I am sure you want to buy this one right. Worry not! We are here to help.
TCT recommends: TruGood Baby Bed Safety Net Guard / Rail Foldable
8. Faucet covers:
Tap and faucet edges can hurt while bathing or water play time and the fun times would lead to painful times in no time! Let the fun be retained and the water play be worry-free with these sink extensions and tap covers.
TCT recommends: Tosnail Faucet Extended Kids Sink Extender
9. Baby gates:
This one could and would avoid all the above scenarios. Although it would seem like jailing your child but this one is must have because you can’t be around with your child all the time and carrying your toddler around in your arms might not always be feasible. Go ahead and own this one too then!
TCT recommends: Dream Baby Chelsea Gate Extension
Keep your baby safe and let him enjoy his freedom and child play without any worry for you. Hope these help you in doing just that. Happy Babying 🙂
