When my babies were little I was so vigilant about health and safety in the home (if not a tad paranoid) Babies are just into everything and bless their little hearts they have no sense!. I had cupboard locks and stair gates and rounded corner edges ion furniture. Everything was baby proofed!
I have just been reading over at Rattan Direct that half a million children under the age of 4 are hurt in the home every year. What a completely shocking statistic. And a preventable one.
There is so much you can do to baby proof your home. It is quite an eye opener what mundane household objects cause injuries to children and it is crucial that parents, grandparents and in fact any child carer is aware of these.
