Whether you are preparing for your little one’s arrival, or have an active toddler on the move, it’s important to ensure your home is safe for your family. We know it can be a lot to think about when your child suddenly begins exploring, getting into every cupboard and reaching new heights - that’s when you know it’s time to baby proof your home… and fast!

Unfortunately 67,135 children were admitted to hospital in 2020 due to accidents in the home, many of which could have been prevented by safety equipment. Of course there are quick fixes that you can do right away, including working your way through your home on your toddlers level (yes, that means getting down on your hands and knees!). This will help you to identify any potential hazards and move them out of the way where possible.
