If you have a little one who is on the move, you probably have toddler proofing your home on your mind all the time! It doesn’t have to be a difficult task if you break it down into a few areas. Tackle the task a bit each day and before you know it, your home will be ready for your toddler on the move!
Check out how we’ve tackled toddler proofing our home and keeping up with Carrigan with help from Huggies Little Movers. Yes, there’s more to keeping up with a busy toddler than just making sure your home is safe (though that’s one of the most important things)!
Toddler Proofing Your Home Made Easy
Our best advice for toddler proofing your home is start in the areas where you child spends the most time. You can go room by room, starting with the ones you’re in the most and then work your way through the house.
Use the checklist below to get more prepared as your baby turns into a toddler who seems to be everywhere at once!
Check the Corners
Check for sharp corners and edges on furniture, cabinets, fireplaces, windows, and any other surfaces in the room. Pad sharp edges and make sure all furniture is secured so it cannot tip over if your toddler tries to climb or stand on it.
Ups and Downs
If you live in a house with stairs be sure to put gates at both the bottom and the top to prevent falls. Check the windows in each room too to make sure your curious little one can’t open them and fall out. Make sure the cords from the blinds are kept out of reach as well. Anything that involves ups and downs is a huge interest for the age.
If you’ve been storing anything hazardous on shelves where your kids can’t reach them. Think about moving them out of the way, especially if your toddler is a climber. This could include things like air freshener, candles, cleaning supplies, medications, and alcohol. Get them behind locked doors because those little movers can get into anything!
Stay in Sight
This is a time when you really can’t let your child out of your sight at all. If you have rooms in the house that you don’t want your child in at all, use locks or childproof doorknob protectors to keep them in certain areas of the house.
Don’t leave your child alone in a room, not even to go get diaper changing supplies! Keep basic baby supplies in every room that you spend time in with your child. Then you can easily grab them when you need them!
As soon as Carrigan was mobile, it’s like she went from crawl to walk to run in a day! Or at least it felt like that! We needed diapers that could keep up and luckily we discovered that Huggies® Little Movers were a great fit for us and we’ve been using them ever since. Now I keep a basket with diapers and wipes in every room where we spend a lot of time so I am ready for diaper changes!
There is no way I can let that crazy little monkey out of my sight even to grab Huggies Little Mover Diapers for a changing break!
It takes a lot of diapers to keep this house stocked with some in the bedrooms, playroom, and living room! Thankfully Sam’s Club has exactly what we need!
If you’re wondering why we’ve come to depend on Huggies Little Mover Diapers, here are a few reasons:
- We get a great fit with SnugFit* waistband. My kids who are always on the top of the growth chart and fit can be a challenge!
- They’re now even more absorbent with new and improved LEAK LOCK® protection. I prefer not to have to clean up more than just the diaper!
- Available in sizes 3, 4, 5 and 6 which means we don’t have to hunt for a new diaper that works for us as she grows.
- Leak Lock Protection for up to 12 hours of protection! While I change her more often than that, it’s good to know that we’ve got time on our side!
