According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, children are injured in the home every year. Because of this, many new parents work hard to ensure that their homes are child-safe before bringing their little ones home from the hospital. Although newborns can't necessarily get themselves into much trouble, many parenting websites recommend taking care of all home safety issues before the birth. This only makes sense, since once they've brought their children home, parents are going to have less time than ever to make changes to their homes.
When preparing a house for children, the Babyproofing 101 guide recommends starting low and working your way up:
The trick to adequate babyproofing is not to assume that your infant sees everything the same way you do. He's operating on an entirely different level--floor level. To really take stock of your home's dangers, then, you've got to take a crawling tour.
That done, it's time to go to your knees, and then to your feet, paying attention to electrical outlets and cords, cabinets, wobbly furniture, and sharp edges.
While you're working to protect your child from dangers in the house, it might also be a good time to consider how best to protect your house from your child. Children have never been known to go easy on their spaces, and the older they get, the more damage they're capable of doing.
