We knew this day would come. It was only a matter of time. Turner has gotten really good at scooting everywhere. I definitely can’t take my eyes off him for too long, or he’ll be getting into trouble. Yesterday, it became real. He’s crawling! It just HAPPENED. I had a book that he wanted, and BAM, he crawled to me!
So, this weekend, it’s time to baby proof! Where to begin?! I did a walk through of the house. We don’t really have too many hard corners, so I think we’re good there (for now). So, I counted up our outlets, plugs, and general “danger zones” and made a list! Hope this is helpful for you too!
1 Outlet Cover (if something is plugged in at all times)
2 Outlet Plugs for unused outlets (16 downstairs & 8 upstairs)
3 Cabinet Door and Drawer Locks-kitchen, bathrooms, cleaning closets, desks, etc (14 doors 4 drawers)
4 Baby Gate (2)
5 Oven Door Lock
6 Bath Spout Cover (works if your shower diverter is on top of the spout)
7 Corner Cushion on hard edges (tables, windowsills, etc)
Power Strip Safety Cover for entertainment centers/computer areas (works with regular plugs, not big bulky ones)
- check smoke detectors in every sleeping area.
- carbon monoxide detector on each floor.
- unplug appliances when not in use
