Babyproofing Your Home

The New Parents' Guide to Babyproofing

Luckily, kitchen countertops are generally high enough out of reach for little hands to get into too much mischief. Still, you'll want to secure as many potential trouble spots as possible, including drawers, cabinets, stoves, and ovens. Switch to organic, nontoxic cleaning supplies, but still move them to a cabinet that's at your eye level — not theirs. Move refrigerator magnets up high, as they can be choking hazards, and unplug small appliances, keeping cords neatly tucked away when they're not in use.
