Baby proofing Books Are Half the Battle

Prior to having a baby, parents excitedly read and research everything from baby proofing books to what to expect during infancy. There is a sense of rushing through this time of your life and worry that makes you feel like you won’t be prepared.

The problem is that once baby arrives, your time becomes so limited that many parents procrastinate unintentionally.

Then one day, your child is climbing the stove, which you meant to secure months ago, and it falls on them causing an injury. The trick with childproofing that no baby proofing books can offer is that you have to act now. Once you realize something is dangerous or hazardous it is often too late to undo the dangers. When you read baby proofing books it is normal to think that the author is over exaggerating or making a mountain out of a mole hill.

The truth is that most baby proofing books are written as a result of an accident or fatal situation and someone wants to make sure that it doesn’t happen to you. Baby proofing is not just about securing things around your home, but also about remaining constant in your efforts to identify and remove dangers from your child’s life.

It can be difficult, but it is far better to be safe than sorry. The point is that you shouldn’t wait another day, or until your child is crawling or until your child is climbing to baby proof your home. Take the initiative and baby proof your home today, right now – so you won’t be a statistic.
