As your baby begins to crawl, climb or walk, his world expands. His new independence and mobility raise a different set of safety concerns. Tiny hands can reach for possible dangers and wobbly legs can give way to potential head and body injuries.
Safety devices are available for virtually every room in your home. Routinely check your home for potential dangers and hazards. Crawl on your hands and knees through each room to see where locks, latches, guards or other safety improvements may be needed. The suggestions in this section can help you protect curious toddlers and preschool age children from hazards throughout your home.
