Baby Proofing: Preventing Accidents at Home

Baby Proofing Can Help Prevent Accidents In The Home

Accidents happen, especially when you have children. The IKEA Home Tour Squad has quick tips for baby proofing your home. First, purchase furniture with rounded edges and if you already have furniture with hard edges, use corner bumpers from the PATRULL child safety series to help soften them. Insert safety plugs into electrical outlets and store fragile items out of reach. Drawer, cabinet caps, and finger guards can help keep doors closed and reduce the risk of door slam injury.
