Has your baby started crawling and milling about, picking and meddling with everything that’s on the floor? This is an indicator that you should childproof your house immediately if you haven’t done it already.

It is of utmost importance that you make your house baby-friendly for the safety of your active little one, and the earlier you start the baby proofing process, the better. “A healthy and safe environment to grow is the best gift you can give to your child… With every blink of the eye your little one will crawl into the next stage and then the next… You will have to keep modifying your home accordingly,” reads an article in mamaearth. The article also cites a study which found that approximately 6 out of 10 children are injured at home.

But, assuring complete safety of your baby is much more than buying fancy equipment and installing baby gates. “To ensure total infant safety it is best to look around your house carefully and identify all potentially unsafe objects or locations which can cause harm to your baby. By making a list of such objects and locations you will be able to take steps to systematically childproof your house and keep your infant safe,” advises an article in India Parenting.

From baby monitors and corner guards to child locks and furniture straps, the plethora of baby proofing things you will need might overwhelm you. To ease this arduous process, help you sort out your baby’s safety requirements and inform you about all the childproofing must-haves, here is a ClipBook we have compiled for you.
