Baby safetification

After safetyfying the house against a rampaging 10 month old I’m not sure it will ever be the same again. Here’s some risk areas which you’d be wise to be aware of:-

  • Potentially lethal items – Button batteries, pills, dish washer tablets, furniture falling or tipping onto them including drawers wardrobes and TVs.
  • Baby temperature. Overheating, fitting and SIDS
  • Roller drawers – trapped fingers
  • Telephone line – tried to pull the wires out of the socket. Phone lines have a voltage present which could give you a nasty nip if put in the mouth
  • Doors – including the hinge area
  • All cupboards / drawers and what’s in them
  • Fridge freezer
  • Bins and contents
  • Bathroom storage boxes
  • Sharp corners and edges of furniture
  • Fire guard and sharp bits on fire guard
  • Hard Floor – Bought a rug and mats
  • Batteries in remote controls etc – disposed of or taped over
  • Power sockets – are the live neutral covered by the internal earth plug safer cover (UK plugs)
  • Baby walkers causing falls
  • Dropping baby
  • Bath temperature
  • Carers hot drinking liquid, tea coffee – add cold water leave in one safe location
  • Oven and hob
  • Hot radiators
  • Stairs
