Your Ultimate Online Resource for Parenting in Charlotte, North Carolina

We all know that we need to keep a watchful eye on our baby at all times. That being said, no matter how careful you are you are bound to turn around for a second, and that is enough for your baby to get into trouble. Therefore, it is vitally important that their surroundings are safe.

Never leave your baby alone with a bathtub, or anything they can fall from. Make sure all household cleaners, medicines, small items, and other potential hazards are placed out of their reach or locked safely away. Protect your outlets, attach your cords securely to the wall. Make sure their toys are age-appropriate and haven't been recalled. You may want to contact a professional babyproofer.
