Toddler Saftey

Carter is growing up more and more every week (well of course he is) but yesterday and today he has been starting to climb up furniture, and very interested in the stove. We have a few safety items around the house (baby gates, cupboard locks, electrical outlets blockers) but now it was time to think about furniture and the stove. A coworker of mine posted on Facebook about securing TV’s and dressers to the wall (to be honest, I didn’t even know these existed).

So we went to Baby’s R Us today and picked up a few items.

It did cost around $50 for the 3 items, and yes we watch our spending money, but honestly safety is priceless. If Carter ended up with a burn, turned on the gas stove and we had a leak, or if the TV fell on him I would have beaten my self up for months, or years. So $50 is being well spent. (I’m sure there is more safety stuff that we need to get too).

I was able to put on the knob covers and the stove guard on in less than 5 minutes. I’m going to get Brent to help with the furniture straps later today.

But I just wanted to share some baby/toddler safety with everyone, and please share what you feel is important.

Here’s how the stove now looks.
