This article deals with some ideas for ensuring the safety of your baby in the villa by baby proofing techniques.
Every family finds their happiness in villas and homes. And such happiness is vested on the younger one in the family. Your baby gives immense vibes and meaning to your life. So naturally, their protection becomes the primary concern of every loving parent. Villa is the safest place for your crawling and active baby. But if you fail to baby proof your villa the chance of accidents increases. You need to understand that every corner of your accessorized villa can pose a threat to your younger one. Clear observation and precaution can save your babies from unfortunate incidents.
When your baby starts to crawl, every edge and corner of your full packed villa becomes threats. His/ her movements will be fast and unpredictable. Babies try to grab anything they can reach. They taste anything they hold. So your villa needs utmost preplanning before welcoming a baby. Below we discuss how to baby proof some common space in your villa which otherwise pose danger to your baby.
Villa’s floor where a baby interacts must be crystal clear. Her defensive system can’t prevent the hazardous bacteria outside. So as a first step, clean your floors with mild materials. Don’t use slipping mats or a tile which steals little one’s balance. You may better remove bumpers and dusty carpets from the floor to assure safety. But you must use the rug or any other soft pads in the floor to reduce the hardness of the surface. If you are not okay with converting your floor completely, at least try soft materials like foam tiles in the play area.
The bathroom is the wettest place in your villa. Naturally, it becomes the most dangerous place for your baby. The bathtubs and slippery floor demand serious attention. Always close the entrance of the bathroom when you are away from the baby. Beyond that ensure closet and tub has safety tops for extra protection. Use nonslip mats in the bathroom. And if there is an electric heater, the codes must be checked and clipped properly.
The kitchen is probably the busiest room in your villa. And your baby will be eager to reach the sound making utensils and shelf without your consent. So organize your kitchen properly. Be wise in storing plastic bags and carriers since your baby may love to play with them. Small and round vegetables and fruits must be away from your baby. Electronic devices like microwave Owen, refrigerator etc., pose an open threat to the baby. Seal their opening to protect her.
Taking precautions in baby proofing your furniture has two advantages. First, your precious belonging is safe from baby’s eyes. Second, your baby is safe from getting injured by colliding with it. Check the stability of furnitures like bookshelf and dressing stands. They must be attached to walls or hangers to avoid tilting.
Sharp corners must be softened to mitigate any threat to your walking baby. And never put any furniture near the attractive decorative. Because she will use such furniture as a ladder to reach that object.
High alert areas
There are some areas in your villa that pose a constant danger to your baby. For example, doors. Your little one often smashes his fingers between door openings. You can try a stopper in doors to avoid ramming of doors. Another intimidating problem is the stairs. Baby may try to crawl on the stairs or she simply tries to slide through the steep. Putting a small gate on the stare will solve this problem. Another room that demands instant care is your storeroom. Your store room consists of less harmful detergent to the highly toxic pesticide. Never allow your baby to enter this room. Make shelf at your head level so that your baby never happen to touch the harmful stuff.
A play area helps to keep a baby occupied all the time. But never provide small toys that baby eventually direct to mouth. Decrease hazardous plastic materials all over. This includes your mobile charger and remote batteries. Just try crawling to see any threat you left behind.
