As you welcome a baby into your life, you have to make certain changes in your household too. Your cute bundle of joy could get into quite a lot of trouble if you don’t keep an eye on them. Taking a few precautions and thinking ahead will save you from constantly worrying about your little one’s safety. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to compromise on your decor and aesthetics. Sure it will get a little messy but that’s to be expected of any household with a toddler. As a baby grows, he/she will need a safe space to explore and satisfy their curiosity. Here are a few tips to make your home more baby-friendly.
1. Anti-skid tiles
It’s a moment of celebration and joy for any parent when their kid takes his/her first steps. As we encourage them to take their first steps and walk, it is our responsibility to ensure that the floor is safe enough for them to do so. We don’t want them hurt when they make this brave effort. The flooring needs to provide a good grip for toddlers to move about. Anti-skid tiles reduces the risk of slips and falls, and the resultant potential for injury.
2. Shockproof switches
There’s nothing those inquisitive munchkins won’t get their hands on. They like to explore as much as possible so it’s best to have sockets with built-in automatic shutters to stop children from sticking their fingers into them. Shockproof sockets and switches will prevent the risk of electrical hazards.
3. Child-size fittings
You’ll probably have to make a few adjustments in the bathroom to make it easier for your child. The bath, sink, and toilet should be of a suitable size. They’ll need a kiddie potty and an extra seat attachment to make it less messy.
4. Avoid sharp edges
Sharp edges pose a threat to the safety of your child. Use of special foam rubber bumpers on such edges will avoid injury. Rounded corners certainly is an innovation that can be adapted while designing a child-friendly home.
5. Natural cleaning products
Your common floor cleaner contains a lot of chemicals which are mixed together to wipe out all the germs on your floor and tiles. Although these floor cleaners leave your tiles sparkly clean, they pose a threat to the life of your little ones! The most common ways of consuming these toxins are through inhalation and touch.Babies learn to grow on the floor and if your floor itself is toxic, it will have a negative impact on your baby’s health. The chemicals present in these cleaners like ammonia, phosphates, chlorides, and alkylphenol ethoxylates have an adverse and long-term effect on your own health and that of your family. Opting for natural and chemical free cleaners seem to be the best option right now.
Your child’s health and safety is your first priority and we at Tinystep have come with a floor cleaner with just that in mind.
