Toddler safety





Being upright and learning to walk changes your toddler's perspective on the world. Instead of the carpet and furniture legs being at eye level, suddenly, tabletops, windowsills, furniture seats, steps, shelves, and drawers are accessible and fascinating to explore. While your little furniture climber may be the next Edmund Hillary, it's a bit too soon to encourage them to scale great heights -- because they're so little, a fall of a metre can be much more dangerous to a child than it would be to an adult.

You probably baby-proofed your house when your little one started crawling, but as they get older and smarter, you'll be amazed at the hidden dangers your child can uncover. With that in mind, we've created some checklists for toddler-proofing your home. Click on the links below to see our great tips for making your little one's environment safe and secure. You'll be able to rest easier knowing your home is safe, inside and out!

Making sure your toddler is safe in the car is also crucial, especially when they graduate from a rear-facing carseat to a front-facing carseat.
