How to make your home safer for your little ones

How to make your home safer for your little ones

As mums we know that it’s difficult to keep an eye on your little ones at all times when you’re at home. With this in mind, we’ve come up with some tips that will give you peace of mind as your little ones move around your home.

1. Keep medicine/cleaning products far away
It’s important to make sure that your little ones don’t have access to any products that may be harmful to them, such as medicines or bleaches. Keep any cupboards with these products inside either out of reach or locked so that you don’t have to worry about them consuming any harmful substances.

2. Cover sharp corners
Toddlers are just at the right height to bang their heads on the edges of tables and kitchen units which are often very sharp. Cover up any sharp corners with foam or another soft material to ensure that their heads are protected from nasty bangs.

3. Use a stair gate
Falling down the stairs is a common way for little ones to sustain injuries and many toddlers struggle to go up and down the stairs on their own. To stop them from falling down, make sure that you have a stair gate fitted at the top of your stairs.

4. Keep sleeping areas bare
Reassure yourself that your little ones will be safe during the night by keeping their cots or beds as bare as possible. This will ensure that their noses and mouths are not accidently covered by pillows or blankets which can lead to suffocation.

And finally, here’s a product you may not have heard of…

Aquaint Sanitising Water
Hidden germs that we can’t see in the home can be a danger to your little ones as their immune systems won’t have fully developed. We recommend using Aquaint Sanitising Water as an easy way to sterilize dummies, toys and feeding equipment and help protect your toddler from colds, coughs and sore throats.
