Your little ones are on the move now and can get into all kinds of mischief quicker than you can even say 'blink of an eye' So if you haven't already done so, now is the time to baby proof wherever possible.
Here we've compiled a list of the most popular ways to keep your bundles of joy safe at home.
* Door stops or door holders are great at stopping those tiny fingers trapped.
* Blind cords should be cut to prevent baby getting tangled up. Mobility and climbing go hand in hand for babies on the go and the little monkeys want to explore no matter how high sometimes. Alternatively you can buy cordless window coverings.
* When your sockets aren't in use, do use outlet coverings/safety plugs. The buttons are exciting and the holes are just great for poking things into.
* Put child safety locks on all low level cabinets OR move the danger (medicines, breakables, toxic cleaning products and sharp items) into high cabinets, way out of reach of your new explorer. To keep them involved in all the kitchen goings on why not fill a low level cupboard with baby safe items such as toy food, kitchen appliances and wooden cutlery.
*Attach corner and/or edge guards onto edges of furniture to minimise all of those hazards that go along with a newly mobile baby.
* Installing window stops to prevent falling can give great piece of mind. Unfortunately for parents, babies don't yet have 'The Fear' and see everything as an adventure.
* Have a non slip mat in the bathtub and never leave your little ones around water unattended, not even for a few seconds.
* I know it's great to cook with children as it can really ignite a passion for food but do be mindful of their abilities. Turn pan handles away from little hands, fit an oven door guard and don't carry your baby when carrying hot food.
