Children are our future! Having a child is one of the greatest joys in the world but it comes with a huge responsibility. You must take it upon yourself to keep the child safe and sound, care for him, feed him, and tend to all his physical and emotional needs. But since accidents do tend to happen,
here are a few tips to help you out with keeping your baby safe.
Before you know it, your baby will start crawling around. That’s why it’s paramount for you to install safety barriers everywhere in order to prevent certain accidents from happening. For example, the stairs should be off-limits, as well as certain rooms and premises. Installing such barriers will prevent the child from entering the rooms or falling down the stairs.
I know that you will constantly be watching over him (or at least that what’s you think) but it takes only a second of distraction and before you know it the accident happens. Keep in mind, though, that the barriers will work only for a couple of years and after that, the child will be able to climb over them in order to reach the desired destination.
This is the ultimate tool for window safety, giving you the full control of how much and when a window can be opened. The locks work perfectly and only the key-holder will be able to open the windows. Window locks are an excellent tool from preventing windows related accident or injuries, as well as making sure that you don’t lose the control even for a second. Keep in mind that you should keep the keys in an easily accessible for you spot so you can quickly open windows, if needed.
It goes without saying that these should be deployed every time the baby will sit on a chair, in order to prevent falling, as well as to support its back. This is of paramount importance for the process of sitting safely. It may be easy for you to sit down, but when you’re a year old, it’s quite the feat to just sit up and keep some balance.
If the chairs are not safe, the baby can fall and hurt his head, which in some cases to lead to severe head trauma and long-term damage. Nobody wants that to happen, which is why people do everything in their power to prevent such a grim outcome, including resorting to 5-point harnesses.
Impact absorbing surfaces
Impact absorbing surfaces are a next-generation surface technology that absorbs a large portion of the potential energy carried by a falling object. When your baby inevitably starts trying to walk and consequently experiences for the first time the sensation of falling down, you will be thankful that somebody has told to install such surfaces in your home.
The impact absorbing technology will negate most of the effects of falling down. In essence, your child won’t be in pain from the impact. Don’t ignore the 5-point harnesses, though, because falling from a chair might still cause a severe injury even if you have an impact absorbing floor.
In addition to impact absorption, some surfaces also offer anti-slip technology which means that by using them you are killing two birds with one stone.
Falling down on the floor is nothing compared to falling on a sharp edge. That’s why the use of edge protectors is advised. This technology prevents the child from falling on an edge by covering it with a material to negate the effects. It is truly a remarkable to tool to have at your disposal.
