Babyproofing Your Bathroom
The bathroom is a seriously hazardous place for babies and young kids. Filled with water, medications and potentially hazardous products, it's a minefield for curious little kids. Here are 6 ways to start babyproofing your bathroom and keep your kiddo safe:
- Make sure your meds and toiletries are locked away in baby proof cabinets or stored on super, duper high shelves.
- Make sure your water temp is set on 120 degrees so your kid doesn't scald himself if he turns on the faucet by himself.
- Put a toilet lock on the potty. Curious babies can stick their hands in there (ew!) or even worse, fall into the toilet and drown.
- Don't leave hair dryers or curling iron out when you're done using them! Kids can burn themselves on them or drop them into water, which can be fatal. So when you're finished making yourself look gaw-geous, tuck your styling tools away in a baby proofed cabinet or high shelf.
- Never leave your baby alone in the bath! Not even for one split second.
- Make sure to put outlet covers on all the electrical outlets. You don't want your little Curious George to stick something in there and get a shock!
