First and foremost with a mobile toddler – baby proofing the TV.
Be concious of edges and corners:
Babyproofing wires and electrical sockets:
Other things to keep in mind when babyproofing:
- Unprotected tablecloths are not always a great idea. Once your tasmanian devil gets out of your grasp and pulls down on said tablecloth like an amateur magician, things will tumble and it will be messy.
- Chairs and stools are like Mount Everest to your child, except for the harsh temperatures, and they will attempt to climb them because danger is their middle name. Be careful, as well, of sitting your little dude or dudette on a stool as they are easier to tip over than chairs.
- If you have blinds, consider getting cord wraps. To prevent strangulation from the looped cords on blinds, there are a few options. You can always keep them out of reach (honestly, unlikely), cut the loops to shorten and tie the loose ends, or you can pick up a Cord Wrap – just screw the pieces into your window moldings and wrap the excess cord around them and you’re done.
