Every parent understands that parenthood is a juggling act. Between mealtime, playtime and everything else in between, safety proofing can sometimes take a back seat for longer than it should. That is why we want to share some more information on safety latches as a fast and efficient way to start childproofing your home.
When picking the right locks and latches for your home, keep in mind that children learn and imitate behaviours by watching and listening to those around them. As they watch and learn, they may be able to open the latches quicker than you’d expect, so that's why it's suggested that parents use a variety of locks and latches around the home. The simpler the latch is to use, the easier it is for your little genius to figure it out.
Our living room is a place we come together as a family and relax. But for little ones, there are many hazards and dangers. Parenting experts say it’s never too early to baby proof your home to help eliminate potentially unsafe areas.
Remember, once your baby starts to crawl (around 6 to 10 months), you'll need to do a second baby proofing round to make sure the house is safer for a baby on the move. After all, a lot of fun playtime happens in the living room so ensuring it’s babyproof will help put your mind at ease as they play.
