Childproofing tips for new parents 

  1. Don't think of childproofing as a one-off exercise.  Always be on the lookout for the next hazard as your child grows.

  2. Start childproofing when baby comes.

  3. Where possible, throw out poisons.  For those that you have to keep, put them up high and in a lockable cupboard.  (Toddlers love to climb and soon learn to pull chairs over to get up high so locking becomes important.)

  4. Keep glassware / ceramic dishes, etc. locked away or up high.

  5. If there is something you simply don't want broken, make sure it is well out of the way.

  6. Get down to your child's level and crawl around the house looking for potential hazards.
