Traditionally, it is during the summer months that a large proportion of births take place. And there’s already a lot to plan for before a child arrives. It still takes a while before he stands on his two small legs and discovers the world around him, but as soon as he starts to move, it is better to take some precautions so that the little one can move in peace!
Although apart from the security that Verisure offers every day for its customers through its products and services. In this article, we will see how to secure each room in a house so that your child is completely safe at home!
Children and power outlets don’t always go together. The most curious will surely quibble there a few times. For safe outlets, place outlet covers at all of your electrical outlets.
Prevent the child from injuring himself on the corners of the furniture with shock-absorbing foam. Also place door stops so that the child does not get their fingers caught if they play with doors.
Do not place any plants that could be toxic in your living room
Get solid, certified toys for the age of the child, especially for toddlers under three who are still vulnerable. Avoid toys with detachable parts and parts with which the child could choke. Also make sure your child does not play too dangerously with toy packaging.
Store cleaning products in a safe place. Do not place them below the sink but rather above them or in a cupboard fitted with a block cupboard.
Do not place objects on the ledges before the sink but as far as possible behind it.
Cooking? Place a protection around you, a barrier for example, so that the child cannot be burned. Use the rear covers of your stove as much as possible. Make sure the oven has a safety opening and a fan so that the outside wall does not get too hot.
Keep electrical devices out of the reach of children so that small hands cannot pull on the cables.
Avoid the tablecloth on the dining room table. Children can pull them. Instead, use place mats.
Use non-sharp cutlery specifically created for children.
Clear the table of all objects, especially containing objects such as knives.
Always check the water temperature when preparing your baby’s bath. Install a thermostatic valve with temperature limiter or make sure your child does not have access to the valve.
Use a non-slip mat in your bathtub or shower. This will prevent bad falls.
Take a bath seat. Never leave your child unattended while in the bath.
Do not leave objects such as a pair of scissors or hairpins lying around in your bathroom.
The majority of falls take place on the changing table. Always keep one hand on your baby when he is on the changing table.
Have a baby monitor so you can always be on the alert if something happens.
Install barriers in the stairwell so that the child cannot fall out of bed.
