When you were a child you must have had bruises all around your knees and hands while trying crawl or walk. But things have changed and I am pretty sure you won’t like any bruises on your baby’s little toes and hands or any parts of its body. Here is why I’m bringing you these little baby proofing tips you should apply—
- It is obvious you are in a hurry all the time. But that doesn’t mean that you will carry hot food and your baby together with you. Don’t ever do that.
- In case you are home alone and you have to cook, never ever hold your baby while cooking in the stove.
- If your baby crawls already, make sure you have a secured oven door.
- When it comes to your baby’s bath, never leave your baby alone or unsupervised in the bathtub. When it comes to the water, it should be warm and not hot or else that will leave rashes on your baby’s soft skin.
- Keep your baby’s clothes without using any drawstrings.
- While using or choosing the crib for your baby, make sure that you don’t use drop side cribs.
- When you are keeping your baby in the crib, make sure that you don’t leave the toys in the crib when your baby is sleeping. Also keep soft toys and pillows away from your baby when it is sleeping. When your baby tries to get up on the hands and knees, keep mobiles and hanging toys away from him.
- Doors are one of the most common things your baby gets bruises. But using doorstops or door holders you can protect your baby’s finger.
- In order to prevent fall, ever leave your crawling baby alone in the bed, sofa or in any high chairs. Then again, there are a lot of window guards and window stops available for you to use when it comes to protecting your baby from falling through a window.
These are just a few ways to keep your baby safe from unfortunate events. You can use these to keep your baby bruise free.
