Install Safety Latches
If your child is already at the stage where he/she is crawling and is capable of exploring around the house, it is advisable to install easy-to-reach cabinets and drawers. This is to keep children away from potentially harmful substances such as breakables, cleaning chemicals, and kitchen appliances. Moreover, these latches also prevent little fingers from being clipped by the opening and closing of these drawers and cabinets.
Use Safety Gates to Cordon Off Unsafe Areas
Another fixture that you can consider investing in is a safety gate. Install safety gates at hazardous areas such as the top and bottom of stairs and in the doorways of certain rooms to prevent your baby from accessing these places until they can move about safely. Make sure that the safety gates are fastened properly while you are not at home, otherwise your children might be able to swing it open.
