Baby safety is a top priority for all new parents, and we want to help! The following is a list of our Top Ten Baby Safety Items for your home. This list is compiled of products that we have considered to be “must haves” or “top choice.” Get a jump start on baby safety by adding a few of these to your baby registry!
My personal favorite is the automatic outlet covers. Standard outlet covers that must be removed in order to utilize them often go missing after the outlet is put to use. Anyone can forget to put them back on and it only takes a few seconds for an accident to occur. The great covers we have featured below automatically switch back into place the moment your electrical plug is no longer in use! While we recommend all of your outlets be fitted with these easy to install plates, they are truly important on outlets of high use, such as, a common outlet used for charging computers and everyday items.

Some great ideas for the home! I use bungie ropes to keep my cupboards closed. Work a treat and since I had them lying about the house free as well.
good tips! i love the cupboard latches
I swear by the locks on all my doors. my daughter will empty every single cupboard if she can
How amazing! I love the magnetic locks and pinch door guards. With my 13 month old he loves trying to get the outlets. Luckily they’re very safe but he’s sneaky. Thanks for the tips
Thanks for the oven knob suggestions. We are in desperate need!

Great post! I love each one of these and to be honest I need each one with the little fellow we have around here. Thanks for sharing these, I really need a few of those appliance locks!!
We used a number of variations of those over the years. I like the way the magnetic cabinet closures have a little handle thingey now.
I never thought about oven knob protectors but it makes perfect sense. Things sure have changed since my “littles” were little! lol
I love the power strip cover. That is definitely a must have!
I think it is possible I may have been the worst mama in the world and it is lucky my girls survived, lol. I never baby proofed anything. If it was breakable it went on a top shelf and that was about it. Of course I kept all meds, poisons, etc locked away but I never even thought of covering my oven knobs or electrical chords. I think if the internet had been like it is now back when I was a new Mom I would have done things a lot differently! They have so many awesome products now and so much more information. I would have had those adorable door stoppers all over the house!
The power strip cover and the stove knob covers are awesome! I have to get these both!
Great tips. Don’t forget a baby gate if you have stairs in your home.
This is a wonderful post, I’m not quite there since we are expecting. But baby proofing has been on my mind. Thanks for all the info.
