  Ten Simple Steps

The Original Safety for Toddlers is dedicated to child safety and experienced in the use of and installtion of quality and tested safety products.

Below are some simple steps to follow to make your home safe for your baby.


1. Latch all lower cabinets and drawers in the kitchen, all bathrooms, laundry room and wet bar.

2. Put a toilet lid lock on all toilets. (A small toddler can drown in less than 1/2 inch of water)

3. Replace all doorstops with a one piece doorstop. (small rubber tips on standard door stops can be loosened by your toddler and put in their mouth causing choking) #1 Choking hazard in the home

4. Never leave any child unattended in the bath. An excellent rule of thumb, always have one hand on the child while bathing.

5. Use self closing protective electrical outlet covers to help assure that parents will not forget to replace the cover after each use.

6. All Closets should be free of dry cleaning bags. Children can suffocate in these plastic bags.

7. Never leave a baby unattended on a changing table. Children learn in an instant how to roll over. They can fall off while you turn away for a second looking for a diaper.

8. Never hang mirrors or picture frames above a child's bed; an earthquake can knock them off onto your sleeping child.

9. Turn your hot water heater to 120 degrees. A baby's skin is more sensitive than an adults. What is warm to us can scald a small infant.

10. As a parent, get down on your hands and knees and look around, inside your home, and see what your child sees through his/her eyes.
