Babyproofing Tips

When Should Babyproofing Begin?

Try as we might, we can't put our children in a bubble. Parents do try their best to protect their tots by babyproofing their homes with products designed to keep them safe. While 95 percent of moms and dads take safety measures after a baby's arrival, a new study reveals that half wait until their kids are mobile to do so. According to the Home Safety Council, a national nonprofit organization that works to prevent injuries in the home, "50 percent [of parents] waited until their children were already crawling and able to get into dangerous situations on their own." The Home Safety Council has teamed up with Toys 'R' Us to create a brochure with tips for creating a safe environment for lil ones from the day they are born. Did you start babyproofing your home before or after your wee one was crawling? Or did you skip the process all together?
