Tips for making your home childproof

By Louise Morrin

Having a child is one of the most special things that can happen to a family. If you're expecting your own little bundle of joy, it's important to take the right steps to make your property in Carlton as safe and secure as possible. 

For example, keeping harmful chemicals and materials under lock and key will stop your children from accidentally coming across them in your home and causing themselves and injury. Things like bleach, rubbing alcohol and other cleaning products should be kept in a high place, well out of their reach. 

Furthermore, if you have a double or triple storey home, be sure to get a gate for both the top and bottom of the staircase. This will significantly reduce the possibility of your kid falling down and injuring themselves. The gate will also keep your child on the same floor as you so you won't have to search high and low for them. 

Finally, putting plugs or placeholders in any outlets will protect wandering hands from putting anything in them. Placing cabinets, bookshelves or something else in front to block the outlet could also be worth considering – anything to limit your child's access to the plugs.
