Whether you have a newborn or 2-year-old toddler, childproofing your home is essential to keeping your baby safe and out of harm’s way. Make safety your number one priority with our list of safety products that will help provide the security needed when at home.
1. Individual Outlet Caps
Outlet Plugs are a pretty good start to any safety list. While outlets are an obvious hazard, it’s one that may be overlooked or even forgotten about. These caps from Mommy’s Helper help protect children from potentially dangerous open electrical outlets. The extra tight child protecting fit makes sure the caps stay where you put them as well.
2. Childproof Door Stopper
The childproof door stopper by The Wolf Moon works by not letting doors slam shut and pinch fingers while eliminating any denting in the door frames due to their soft, foam material. Simply slide the stoppers onto the door you want to protect and forget about it. Easy to put on and take off, these curve shaped creatures are flexible and durable as well.[caption id="attachment_72141" align="aligncenter" width="421"] Image courtesy of Amazon[/caption]
